Many on line shops such as Amazon, give you the option to leaf through a book before you actually get it, as if you were in a bookshop: you can see the cover, read some excerpts and have a look at the illustrations.
You have already read “boy” with Magdalena in Catalan and we did a dictation of the homesickness chapter. Now, you can flick through on line and find out what the book in English is like.
Homework: (Tuesday, 2nd March )
Read the first 3 pages of the book,when Dahl introduces his father and tells us the way he lost his arm.
You will be able to check the way the table of contents was translated into Catalan.

Google has also a tool that lets you flick through the pages of classics and even download them. However, remember you can only download books that are out of copyright. “Boy” is not out of copyright.
