I really liked Janie because she restored Mrs Tolen’s caravan with recycled aluminium sheets, which is creative and also super kind that she helped her.

I liked that the caravan was made out of cans and that everyone was kind and made it for free from recycling

You learn how to recycle cans. There was a girl in the story and she liked to draw creatively. And her grandpa's sister lived in the caravan, and once the sister broke her leg and had to go to the hospital. The girl went to the hospital to see grandpa's sister and it was a surprise for her. My favourite person in the story was the girl.

Really good. I liked the bit when it’s all finished. My favourite character is Janie because she’s the main character and she helps Mrs Tolen.
