KPE 218: "Fish Tale"

"Fish Tale" by Lorraine Orman
Victoria interviews Rachael from Room 18 for this episode of KPE. This book is very popular at Pt England School and is another in the Kiwi Bites series.

"Kathleen is worried about her Great-Grandfather. Ever since Great-Gran died, and since he's been living with Kathleen and her Mum, Gramps has been very quiet and sad-looking all the time. And on top of that, Kathleen s Mum has been working long hours now that Gramps is around to look after her. It's easy to get bored that is, until Kathleen realises Gramps funny-looking garden gnome can actually talk! What follows is a crazy adventure as Kathleen sets out to give the gnome what he most desires, in exchange for making her Gramps happy again."

The girls tell us that the author is reminding the readers that everyone needs good friends, no matter what age you are.

The book has been reviewed by KPE in the past so part of the challenge for these girls was to give a different perspective on the book. You might like to click here and listen to the first podcast of "Fish Tales" after you have listened to Victoria and Rachael and leave both sets of podcasters some feedback.


  1. Hi Rachael and Victoria,
    That was a great podcast. I liked how you spoke with interesting voices. But I also liked how you thought the moral of the story is that everyone needs good friends no matter what age they are. Keep up the great work and I look forward to listening to more of your podcasts.

  2. Hi Racheal and Victoria

    Great podcast girls. I agree with the moral of the story. It's so important to have good friends, and its also important to look after family as well. I'm glad to hear that things worked out for the best for grandpa.

    Well done
    Mrs Lagitupu
