Eye of the Wolf by Daniel Pennac

We are reading The Eye of the Wolf by Daniel Pennac. We have been finding all out about wolves and have posted some of our work already. Part of the book is set in Alaska and we have written descriptions of what we think the barren lands are like:

In the rocky mountains in Alaska, the frozen brown trees are standing on the crispy snow. The brown bears are drinking the freezing and icy water. The trees sway in the chilling wind and the bushes are as still as ice. melting water is trickling down the  icy, snow capped mountains. The cold water flows down into the lake.
                                  by Josh C
There are frosted mountains and summer plants and melting snow. Snow capped mountains and ice cold trees tower above the frosted water. Alaska is a frozen country. In the winter, the rocky mountains are as sharp as knives. The fragile hills point up to the frosted sky. The waste land is where nobody lives. But the wolves do!
                                        by Joseph C
Alaska is rocky and mountainous. Its mountains are frosty and snowcapped. Caribou leap and run away from fierce wolves that are as fast as cheatahs. The wolves’ howls pierce the snowy barrenness. Giant, thin trees wobble in the wind like enormous pencils.
                                             by Kieran
Alaska is a frozen wasteland, full of rough rocky mountains surround the land. Huge human foot steps stompon the crackling fragile ice. Giant blooming trees standing there like sentinel  statues guarding the frozen land.
The sun shines down, in the gleaming wonderful sky. Roaming animals scavenge for their pray. Frozen ice melts on the damp wet ground. Green plants stand there in the frozen, sparkling, shiny snow. Glourious birds flying over the baron empty land. Jumping cubs leep over the fallen down brown tree trunks.
                                     By Jack W
Alaska   A snow capped mountain stands tall stiff and frozen still . The ice cold ponds are freezing . There are not many animals that live there . Pricked up grass, frozen and still are like trees . Mountains close in as tall as giants . The snow lies carefully on the snow capped mountains . There are bumpy hills all over cold Alaska.

    Some powerful writing here, well done! I noticed that several of you used the world ‘cold’ quite often. I’m sure it is cold in Alaska, I wonder if you could think of any other adjectives to describe just the temperature?

        Great work Josh C! You’ve added some very descriptive and evocative adjectives. Can you combine two of your sentences to make a complex sentence? Or add some extra detail to add a clause to another sentence?
