I have used the story to extend various aspects of the curriculum. Using the book as a lesson starter the children discussed friendship; loneliness; relationships (family and extended family); being judgmental; cleanliness. I used it (amongst other poems) as an example of rhyme. I used it as a starter for examples of writing - we had to reply to Pongys' Aunties party invitation. We also had an environment based lesson linked with a science topic about bacteria!!
We also had a very interesting discussion about the children's favourite part of the book. Some children said that their favourite part was the description of all the ways Pongy was....... well pongy! Others (myself included) loved the pictures of Pongy dancing. All of the children agreed that they absolutely loved the illustrations. Many have used them as a template for illustrating their own versions of the story. In small group work I asked the children to just use the illustrations and recite their own version ofthe story to say aloud to the rest of the children!
One child has said that Pongy should do a Christmas special as they drew him in a Christmas jumper!
I really hope that there will be a follow up story - in fact my children will be writing letters to Kate and Liz Mullin to ask just that!
I highly recommend this book.
I bought two copies. One for my great grandson and one for a friends grandson.
I couldn't wait until Christmas to give it to my great grandson it is such a great book.
My great grandson really liked some of the words - especially 'farting' and I had to re - read that verse many times as he thought it was so funny.
I thought the pictures in the book are beautiful and my great grandson and I spent lots of time looking at all of the things in the pictures.
His mum really likes it because she can use it in a way to get him to have a bath and brush his teeth - mind you he told her if he didn't have a wash or do his teeth he could be Pongy Stinkbelly too!
I am going to look for more books by this author and illustrator.
