Rob believes that making a picture book is like making a film; he casts the characters, directs the film and writes the script!  


Re-read the extract from Blown Away and imagine that you have been asked to make the next scene in the story as a film. First of all, think about what the characters will do next – what setting will they be in? Who will they meet? What will they be worried about?


1) Draw your scene and accompanying sentence for the next page of the story


2) Write a script showing what happens, including dialogue between characters and props
