3: Julie Andrews Edwards is widely know as an entertainer. She's been on Broadway, in movies and television shows. She began writing children's books over 35 years ago with her first two novels - Mandy and The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles.
4: The story revolves around Professor Savant and the Potter children, Ben, Tom and Lindy. Professor Savant was very imaginative and wise. Ben is the oldest sibling an protective of his little brother and sister. Always correcting them when they are doing wrong or making bad choices. Lindy is the baby sister. She outgoing, talkative and the most imaginative of the siblings. She likes to question and argue with her older brothers. Tom was my favorite character. Tom was very brave and always willing to take risks.
6: This adventure was about three children Lindy, Tom and Ben who met a stranger at the zoo. He told the children about a creature called a Whangdoodle. On a spooky Halloween night a dare to knock on a haunted house door sent these kids into a world they would have never imagined on their own.
8: Professor Savant looked at the children for a long moment, as though trying to make up his mind about something. Then he leaned back in his chair, closed his eyes and said quietly: ''The Whangdoodle lives in Whangdoodleland, where he is king. He is the only animal left of his species, although there are other wonderful, fascinating creatures that live with him. There are Gazooks and
9: Sidewinders, Tree Squeks and Swamp Gaboons. There is an animal called an Oinck and another called a Prock. They have hardly ever been seen; in fact they would do anything possible to avoid mankind. So far, they have been remarkably successful.''
10: My Favorite Passage is, ''The best remedy for a bad scare is to turn right around and face what frightened you.'' I really liked this part. There's been lots of times I've been scared and if I didn't face my fear, like standing up to a bully I had to deal with. I would have always been scared to stand up for myself.
11: The Oily Prock
12: The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles is a very extraordinary book. It made me feel like I was actually in the book. I forgot that I was just reading words on paper, but that was just the way that the book wants you to feel. I like the part of the book when the kids figure out that the Whangdoodle doesn't just change colors but that he grows a new pair of slippers every year on his hind legs.
13: Whangdoodle Slippers
14: I liked this book because it had a lot of adventure. The adventure that they went on was to Whangdoodleland. There were many amazing creatures like the gazzooks, swamp gaboons, wifflebirds, splintercats, the Prime Minister, the ''Oily Prock'' and of course the one and only Whangdoodle.
15: I liked that it made me keep wanting to turn the page and see what was going to happen next. I would recommend this book to my friends so they can go on the same great adventure that I had reading this book. It's definitely interesting and exciting to read.
