Secrets of a Sun King
By Emma Carroll
In this chapter Lillian's parents do not behave in the way she expects.
After her Dad has spoken to her about the fight at school she says, "I didn't know what to think of what Dad had just said, but I'd a strong feeling it wasn't a telling off." How did she expect her Dad to react? How did he react? Do you agree with Lillian that it was not a telling off? Why?
What does Lillian's Mum do that is unexpected?
Have you ever been surprised by an adult's reaction? Perhaps you have expected them to be angry, but they weren't. Or maybe it's the other way around and you have expected an adult to be happy or excited by your news, but they didn't seem to be. How did this make you feel?
