    Dear Mrs Joyce,
    Some question I had were why is Ali locked up
    I was surprised when ali made magic because some people don’t believe in magic and would think its stupid.
    in the story I liked that he took something to make people happy.
    \
    I didn’t like when he got sent to the dentation centre

    I didn’t understand why he left the other people in the dentation centre.

    I would change that he took the people with him and rather not leave them.

    It made think about how my family was a refugee.

    Dear Mrs Joyce,
    some questions I had were where did he used to live?

    I was surprised when everyone went to Ali to watch Ali do his magic trick because he made them happy.

    In the story I liked when Ali took his magic because muhmood felt loved.

    In the story I disliked when Ali was heart broken because he was locked in a barb Wire.

    Mrs Joyce, I would like to change in the story to lets him be allowed to stay where he wanted because if he stays in detention it he would be EVERY miserable.

    It made me think about when my brother locked his room door and did not let me in.

    Dear Mrs Joyce,
    some questions I hade were why was the place that he was living in dangerous? It was dangerous because of was.
    I was surprised about where the detention centre is because it can get really hot in the desert.
    in the story I liked that Mahmood made everybody so happy. long time in the story I disliked that all of the other refugees had not laughed in a very long time, they have not done that because detention centres make you very sad. Mrs Joyce I would like to change in the book that no refugees get sent to detention centres. the book made me think about how lucky we are in Australia. I didn’t understand why they put Makmood into the barbwire fence when he was just a little boy.

    Title: Ali the Bold-Heart
    Author: Jane Jolly
    SL1S: A book about Ali the magician and he is trying hard to be able to get out of the Detention Centre and brightening up all of the people who was there by showing them his magical talent.

    Response:
    Dear Mrs. Joyce,
    These are some of my questions about my book, why did Ali take 1 bag with him when he went overseas? I believe it might of being because he only had a couple of objects that he owned. How could Ali have magic in his bag? Maybe he was a magician.
    I was surprised about when Ali found himself behind bars at a detention centre. I inferred that a security guard found him outside of the detention centre and took him in when Ali was asleep. I was also supprised because Ali didn’t commit any official crimes other than coming in by boat.
    I liked it when Ali inspired the others when he showed them his magical talent of being a magician. I liked this moment because the others needed a reason to smile because they wouldn’t of smiled for a wile until Ali had appeared.
    I really didn’t like the fact that Ali left the others in the detention centre and didn’t take them with him when Ali found the magic in hisb heart and found a way out of the detention centre.
    I would change in the book that Ali takes his acquaintances with him and have a happy live in a home in Autsralia.
    This book made me think that us people in Australia are safe and out of war and the refugees don’t get to be able to enjoy that the way we get to.
    I didn’t understyand why they stay in a detention centre knowing the facrt they didn’t commit any serious crimes.

    Dear Mrs Joyce some questions I had where why was Ali locked up in detention centre when he did not do anything.

    I was surprised when Ali pretended to be happy to make the others refugees feel happy.

    In the story I liked how Ali how made the others feel happy and Ali shown the magic to them and they fought it was great.

    In the story I disliked when Ali was sad.

    Mrs Joyce I would like to change to not make Ali or the other people get locked up in a detention centre.

    The book made me think about how they got locked up in a detention centre if I was Ali I would feel lonely like Ali did.

    dear Mrs Joyce
    some questions what kind of refugee is ali?, why is ali locked up?.
    I was surprised about that ali got put in dentation centre because he did nothing wrong
    I liked how ali made everybody happy because it filled me with joy
    I didn’t like how everyone was in a dentation centre because it made me sad
    I would chance that nobody would ever go to a dentation centre because its unfair to the refugees in there
    The story made me think about how safe our country is because some people aren’t safe in there country
    I didn’t understand why ali was in a dentation centre because he did nothing wrong

    Dear Mrs Joyce,

    Some questions I have about the book are how did Ali really escape?

    I was surprised about how quick Ali got caught when he got to the safe country.

    I really liked Ali showing Mahmood how to do magic.

    I didn’t like how Ali was put behind sharp bars. He deserve it. He just wanted to be safe.

    I would seriously find a house to put Ali in and when his country is war free I would let him go home for a visit.

    The book made me think about refugees in Australia and people who are not nice to them.

    I really didn’t understand how Ali escaped. Where is he now?

    dear Mrs Joyce,
    some of the questions I had were
    why did he get locked up?
    I was surprised when the guy was being nice to the kids.
    In the story I liked when the kids were happy because of the magic.
    In the story I disliked when the people got locked up because I felt sad for them.
    Mrs. J,
    I would like to change where the bad people locked them up in the story because I think they should help them.
    when the bad people locked them up it made me think about how sad they wood be because I
    would feel really sad if it happened to me.
    I didn’t understand how Ali was magic because he disappeared.

    I was surprised when Ail got out of the detention center with his magic, because he said to the boy wish i could.
    Ihavn`t smiled in ages.
    in the story i disliked how so much people got sent to detention center, because there life is roowend n the story i liked when Ali took something that makes people happy, because some of the people and full of bad memorries.
    Mrs joyce, i would like to chang in the story that people don`t go to detention centers, because they came in peac and not to harm anyone.
    in the book made me think about how lukey we are, becuse they diden`t get to choos there cloths they diden`t get choose what they had for tea.
    i diden`t understand why Ali was in detention center, because he just wanted a plaec.

    Dear Mrs Joyce,
    I’m wondering why did Ali got put in a detention centre. I’m also surprised about Ali cheered Mahmood
    up. And I’m glad that Ali cheered the children up.
