Story Review by Jahsiah
The Day Mary Shook the Karaka Tree by Jan Farr
This story is about some children and their parent who played tennis on Thursdays. The children were ball kids for their parents and they fetched the tennis balls when it went out of the court. Once a ball got trapped up a Karaka tree and Mary had to climb up the tree and shake the branches to get the ball down.
The characters in the story are Mary,Dana,Wynne and other kids.
This story takes place at the tennis court near the karaka tree.
I like this story because it shows us how a family works together and they enjoy each others company.
