I saw this picture and loved it.  It first reminded me of the BFG, and then I noticed some differences.  I really like some of the language used in this story starter – particularly some of the imagery created by powerful verbs such as “wrenched”, and powerful adverbs such as “helplessly”.  I think they really show the reader how powerful the troll is and how the owners were feeling.

I wonder if any of you could continue this story, or start a new story based on this image?  After that, others could give you some feedback about your successes and how to get better.  I advise you to practise your noticing learning muscle to look at all of the details in the picture, if you get stuck for ideas.

Remember to proof-read your writing to check for spellings and punctuation.

Happy writing!
