English Homework:
Cartoon Capers

©1998 Gareth Pitchford

You might find it useful to gather together some cartoon strips or comic books to help you do this homework.

Look through the storybook that you're reading at home at the moment.

What I want you to do is turn a small section of that book into a cartoon strip. There's an example shown on the left.

Remember that you can use thought bubbles and speech bubbles. You can also use captions to give the reader additional information about what is happening in the story.
