It looks as if you have had a great deal of fun with the hotseating! WH, yours made me laugh out loud. It is very witty , especially the part about the crocodiles jaws. Also, I like the way you have used ordinary names like Doug and Colin. HM, I hope the people being interviewed behaved themselves. I have read your text and I can see that you have provided some really detailed answers, which shows you clearly thought about who you were interviewing. WM,you have included a good range of questions.

Fantastic work from WP, FA, ZJ, LR and AB. I love the illustration inside the letters FA and your rhyming headline did make me laugh! AB, I love the title of your story. Also, you have used some great vocabulary and I do like cliffhanger endings! I like to make the reader think. LR, your headlines are so witty, especially the one about a small step for man! ZJ, you have combined rhyme with homophones for one of your headlines. Super effort!
