Written by the British novelist William Golding, this fiction novel reminds me of Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Taking place on an island with nothing to do or nowhere to go the only goal is to find safety and to be rescued any day!
Kids will bicker and go back and forth but Ralph and Piggy had enough with Jack this time. “Let them go,” said Ralph, […] wisely, “and for pretending to be a tribe, and putting on war-paint.” (p.148)
Kids only imagine the thought of freedom with no parents to yell at them or ground them until this island is all kids and they have nothing but freedom at such a young age. Do they have fun? Do they get scared? Questions that Ralph and Jack will display throughout the story so come along and join them on the island to experience this memory of a lifetime!
To say the least after reading this novel, we learn a thing or two on how to appreciate and to be grateful for the people around us because you never know if what you wish for comes true and you just might not like it as much as you think!
