  1. Name of The Book: Caddy Ever After

    Author: Hilary McKay


    * Indigo
    * Caddy
    * Rose
    * Saffron
    * Sarah
    * Mum
    * Dad ( Darling Bill )

    Summary of the book:

    Love is in the air for the Casson Family! Four hilarious, endearing tales unfold as Rose, Caddy, Indigo and Saffy each reveal their intertwining stories. Rose begins on how she does special with her Valentines Card for Tom who lives in New York. Not to be outdone, Indigo has his own surprise in store for the Valentines disco in school. For her part Saffy has an unusual date, in a very, very dark graveyard and is haunted by a balloon which nearly costs the life of her friend. But is Caddy (Main character) who dares everything – as she tells all about love at first sight and when you actually have found the real thing… Unfortunately their ” dream” date is not the Real thing. Now what will they do…?

    Q1: How does the main character feel in the book? How do you know?

    The main character in the book is Caddy. She actually came a bit later in the book, but she after she turned up and appeared in the book she was the main character. So Caddy felt confident and proud of herself, probably because she was proud to look after her younger siblings. I can identify this feeling because of the words written in the text. Here are a few examples…

    * ” Whatever you say, I’m your ‘ younger ‘ mother ”

    * ” You are my brothers and sisters and I am a proud person because of that ”

    * ” I love you guys to the moon and back ”

    With these words spoken by Caddy you would understand the mood/feeling that was not only to be proud and confident, but to be fortunate for her siblings. Together there was a mixed reaction or you could say a ‘ twist ‘ with the feelings. This is because Caddy loved her family but she couldn’t express or show that feeling to public or her friends. In this moment in time of the book, Caddy would’ve felt embarrassed or ashamed of her siblings ( especially the younger ones )

    Q2: What other words could the author have use to describe the main character?

    In this book there were a few improvements to make and add to the book .

    Words she could’ve use for Caddy:


    Synonyms for boring words… ( bad, sad, happy, big, small )

    Grief – stricken
    Small scale

    Q3: Why has the character acted in this way? What clues suggest this?
    In this question my character will be Rose because there is a certain part where there is lots of evidence about that main subject.

    In the morning when Rose was making Valentines Day cards on the kitchen table, her sisters friend came up and asked what she was doing. She answered back by saying ” Making Valentines Day Cards for all the boys ” Sarah reacts and says that if you only love Tom, why are you making cards for everybody in your class. Rose says that they are actually all only for Tom…

    This paragraph in the story suggests that Rose is only making them for Tom and she doesn’t want anybody to know it. There is a sentence where it is hidden, which is the last sentence. This suggests that Rose is trying to act in this particular way. She acted this way because she wants nobody to know who her true love actually is.
