The Day Mary Shook the Karaka Tree by Jan Farr
This story is about some parents playing tennis every Thursday after work. The children went to the tennis court with their parents and they collected the tennis balls when it went out of the tennis court.
Mary climbed up the Karaka tree and shook it and all the tennis balls that were stuck up in the tree fell down to the ground and the children picked them all up.
The characters in this story are Mary,Wynne,Pete,Dana,Mum and dad.
This story takes place at the tennis courts and at the karaka tree.
I liked this story because the karaka tree had lots of tennis balls stuck in it and the children were able to shake the balls off the tree.
