Grundskola 7 – 9 Engelska
Imagine you are writing a novel... or comics, movie, TV show, etc. You are the creator of the next big character, just like J.K. Rowling became popular when she created the character Harry Potter. You are the next Stephenie Meyer who created “Bella” in Twilight. Or maybe the next Stephen King? Can you create the next “Minion”, “Cat in the Hat” character or Marvel’s “Spiderman”? Your task is to create a character of your own. You need to decide who your main character is. What does it look like? What does it like? Define who it is...
