Year 4 Stories that raise issues

Year Four have been reading a few books by Anne Fine that raise issues. We have currently been reading Bill’s New Frock today. Below is a summary of what has happened so far and the character’s issues in the book.

Bill woke up on Monday morning and he realised he had turned into a girl overnight. His mum came into his bedroom and threw a pink frock over him. His dad said goodbye to Bill by saying ‘Goodbye Poppet!’ and kissed him on the cheek. His cat Bella didn’t seem to notice anything had changed about him and rubbed herself against him as usual. He went down the stairs and began walking to school. When he was walking to school he bumped into a gang of bullies. The boys whistled at him instead of picking on him. He went to the crossing and met an old lady. The lady took Bill by his hand but he didn’t want her to because usually he crossed the road on his own. Then he sees the gang and the other boys who are late for school, the Headmaster is shouting at them for being late. Bill manages to get into school without being shouted at.

 

The fact that Bill has turned into a girl causes him problems because no one notices the change but he is treated differently. Sometimes he benefits from the change in attitude towards him but sometimes he thinks it is unfair.
