KPE Episode 174 "Famous"

"Famous" by Elizabeth Pulford.
Alisi and Lyn from Room 17 present this podcast about a boy who is desperate to become famous. He tries all kinds of things in his effort to become famous and none of them work. All of the other members of his family are famous - including the cat - but he just cannot manage it.

We have podcast this very popular book before, in episode 130, but you will see that these two girls have chosen a very different tack to take with their presentation. You should have a listen to both of the podcasts about 'Famous' and tell us what you think.

  7. Hi Alisi and Lyn

    Was this your first podcast? I thought you girls did a very good job of explaining what this book was about. I read Famous last year as I noticed it was very popular with Pt England kids. I listened to the podcast Jaydn published last year about this book and I was very surprised to hear how different your one was. The same book and yet you both chose different things to talk about. That is pretty cool.
    I really liked the way you girls explained about cultural tattoos as well.
    Keep this up because you are great podcasters :)

  11. Hi Alisi and Lyn

    Great podcast girls. I listened to last years podcast by Jaydn and Tiana about the same book and I thought that it was pretty cool how you spoke about a different aspect of the story. I thought that it was great how you both explained what a 'moko' and a 'pe'a' was.

    You both used expressive voices and the podcast was interesting to listen to from start to finish. Well done.
