Don t be a bully.Read this book and cry instead Then get bullied But don t give a shit because bullies are pants. An incredibly powerful verse novel where each chapter is written using a different style of poetry Beautiful and heartbreaking Wonderful PHSE links Would be a great read aloud for UKS2 and would link well to National Poetry Day or Anti bullying week. I stumbled across this book by accident Someone had mentioned that Malorie Blackman was a good author to try and this was the only book on the school bookshelf at the time What a read If you like Sharon Creech Love that dog Hat that cat you will enjoy this, but even so this book has so much .It is hard to define as a poem novel but it covers issues of bullying, being new in school and many aspects of friendship and trust It could be used for PHSE sessions but I have read it out loud to 3 different year 5 6 classes and they all got engrossed in the plot beyond the poetry It was also noticeable that the boys in particular wanted to knowabout what would happen next Result I cannot praise this book highly enough and would encourage all to give it a try. This is a powerful book written in a range of styles of poetry and telling the unfolding story of a boy whose whole outlook on life is changed by his brief friendship with a boy who was very different A lovely book for exploring many ideas both to do with text what makes a novel what makes a poem and identity and friendship The narrator ends up in a completely different place at the end of the nine months and through it challenges all sorts of concepts of what is of interest and value in life, what does it mean to see things differently All in all, a deep and thought provoking read Could be coupled along with Love my dog by Sharon Creech which is another story told through poetry, albeit structured on specific poems. Malorie Blackman tells the story of a young boy, Sam who finds it hard to admit his friendship with the new boy Davey in his class He pretends that he doesn t like him, picks on him and stands back while others do the same Davey thinks differently to anyone Sam knows, he see s things quite unconventionally One day a serious incident at school causes Sam to realise just how important Davey really is to him as a friend Davey however, feels he only has one choice and that is to conform to what others would like him to be Sam wants the old Davey back, until one day Davey moves away for good and Sam is left feeling like the odd one out.This story deals with sensitive issues such as bullying and exclusion, and explores some of the feelings behind such acts It looks at friendship, the beauty of accepting people s differences and how those differences can serve to enrich a person s character I think this book would be suitable for KS2, years 4 5.Cloud Busting is written entirely in poetry form, from haikus to limerick In the afterword, Malorie Blackman explains a bit about her love for poetry and her reasons behind writing the book in this format I think it could encourage children of this age to consider exploring poetry further. Cloud Busting is a captivating story about one of the harshest aspects of school life for many children the painful, destructive act of bullying This story features Sam, the bully and Davey, his victim as the main characters As is the case in most such situations, Sam is not short of supporters and Davey s suffering is the sort that would tug at many hearts This is very much a tale of emotions pain, fear, confidence at both extremes of the spectrum, the blush of a schoolboy crush and after a period of reflection induced by a potentially life threatening incident finally, regret on the bully s part A gripping, touching story by any measure, however, what I found most fascinating about this book, was its superbly creative presentation The entire story is told through poetry poetry of various types that seamlessly flow into each other The unusual form is very obvious, yet not at all distracting as the strong story line urges the reader on The simple vocabulary, including some slang would serve well to distract poetry averse readers from the fact that this story is an anthology of poems Further, Blackman has very creatively utilised one of the poems in the book to demonstrate how teachers can transform poetry averse children into enthusiastic budding poets In this particular poem, Mr McKee, a teacher who is clearly passionate about the subject of poetry seized and capitalised on a teaching moment, and drawing upon the children s experiences of rap and pop music, was able to ignite in them a desire to write poetry Cloud Busting, in my humble opinion, is a perfect tool for busting children s misconceptions of poetry as boring and for old people while vividly yet sensitively addressing the issue of bullying. I chose to read this book because I was intrigued by the poetry format and I always seek profound and emotional children s novels However when I started this book I struggled as poetry is something I am not entirely confident with unless its the traditional rhyming and rhythmical pattern But this book isn t like that each chapter is a different style I found it very difficult at first as I wasn t sure if I was reading it right, how do you know how you re supposed to read it What if I miss something because I can t decipher the rhythm or flow But quickly I got in to it and became less focussed on the poetry andwith the storytelling A beautiful story of childhood friendships, bullying and regret Characterisation is done beautifully and portrayed through the use of speech and language used by the characters I would love to use this in class with KS2 children, it would make a great class book and lead to lots of writing frameworks, PSHE concepts, and storytelling My only criticism is it s just not long enough I wantedof the story it does feel a bit half done. Cloud Busting is about a boy called Sam who was bullying a boy in his class The book explores why Sam started to bully his classmate and how this affected the boy who was being bullied Through his actions he in turn became bullied and understood how Tim felt What I enjoy about this book is that all of it tells the story through chapters of poetry It uses different types of poetic methods and techniques Malorie Blackman was able to incorporate the characters development of poetry into the story This will be useful to children who are developing their poetry techniques in English, by having relatable characters and different use of poetry.This book is suitable for KS2 pupils who have already started using poetry and are aware of the different poetic techniques This book can be used to support English and PSHE Citizenship This is Definitely a book that I would use with a future class. A moving story of bullying, complex friendships and power of peer pressure in causing misguided decisions This is one of the first novels in verse that I have ever read and an extremely powerful one at that Stepping away from any standard form of verse was so powerful in depicting the conflicting emotions experienced by the protagonist A very interesting and valuable experience to watch the events unfold from an often unheard perspective. ^Epub ☝ Cloud Busting ↙ Despite His Mum S Insistence, Sam Doesn T Want To Be Friends With Davey, He Thinks Davey S A First Class, Grade A, Top Of The Dung Heap Moron But One Day Davey Saves Sam S Life And A Bond Is Formed Between Them Sam Is Still Embarrassed To Be Seen With Davey, But Little By Little He Has To Admit, When It S Just The Two Of Them, Davey Is A Lot Of Fun But Then Something Terrible Happens To Davey Told In Verse, In First Person, This Is The Touching Story Of An Extraordinary Friendship, That Changes Two Boys Lives For Ever An Uplifting Tale That Truly Sings Out
