Children of Wax

What was the same?
They were both allowed to play in the dark. - Oliver
It kept the same theme of transformation. The boy wanted to go out and see the world and he transformed into a bird. It had the same message. - Zac

What was different?
This time there were two brothers, rather than a brother and sister. - Jordi
They put the bird on a mountain, not just outside. - Lucy
The setting was different. They weren't in a forest. They didn't say he turned into a real bird. Maybe he was still made of wax. - Anna
In this story, they said the children worked and helped the family. - Ollie
The story we heard in class was more detailed and in depth. - Olivia
