Literacy Ladder T4 Pre Reading Follow Up Task

Yesterday my class looked at some books  on a survey and chose what three books we would like to read for the term. We also had to read the blurb of the book and look at each of the books covers. We didn't read each of the ten chapter books my teacher just took a photo of a random page and we to read that. The three books I liked the most was:
  1. The Place We Call Home 
  2. Inside The Game 
  3. Petronas
I got my second choice, Inside the game.
Today we had to do a pre reading follow up task we had to asses the cover design, blurb and title and think about what the book might be about and why we chose the book and why it interested us.
Here is the cover of Inside The Game:
Today We Had To: 
Asses the cover design blurb and title: Here are some of the questions I had to answer.
  • * 1 What made me chose the book?
  • *2 Why and what appeals to me about this book?
  • *3 What hooked me in?
  • *4 What did we like about the title?
  • *5 My predictions about the book?
  • *6 What did I like about the front cover?
*1 What Made Me Chose This Book
What Made me chose this book: It sounded like a different story from anything I had ever read before. 

*2 Why and what appeals to me about this book
When I read the ''Grimm's Fairy Tails " Some of my favourite stories in that book were ones's about Princesses and castles, I thought this story Inside The game  would have a cool modern twist to it

*3 What hooked me in
The blurb really intrigued me and the three objects on the front cover, made me want to discover what the were about...

*4 -The Title seems interesting, and I want to know what it refers to. Also why are there pictures of random objects on the front cover? 

*5 -My Predictions About The Book: Exciting, and Scary I don't think I will be sure of the outcome. I also think that the book would come under fantasy. I also think that there will be lots of different scenes throughout the story.  

*6 -  The Front Cover: I wanted to know what the three objects were about and what was the connection to the story. Also  Modern day vs olden days (castles and princesses).
