WoW – The Mighty Rewrite

This weeks challenge is interesting. You can view the full challenge here, but the gist is to get the first paragraph of your favourite book and rewrite it.

I don’t have a favourite book, so I picked one of my sons favourite books – Zac Power Test Drive – Zac’s Wild Rescue. Basically any Zac Power book is his favourite & this one was on the top of the pile.

So, here goes…

Zac was in the school library. He had a science project to work on but he was bored. Zac didn’t like doing projects. He always left them to the last minute.

Jimmy James was bored. His homework was laid out in front of him, complete with a blank page to write on. Jimmy James didn’t like doing his homework. He always left it to the last minute.


Reminds me a bit of my 9 year old… lol

  1. Hehe sounds just like BOTH my kids too! :/ They have the procrastination gene…couldn’t possibly imagine where they get that from…
    Great job, I like this a lot. L has a BFF named James-his mum calls him Jimmy James 🙂

    • Thanks Jayne. I can’t imagine where my boys got it from either…. You can tell L’s friend there is a series of stories written about him, hehehe 😉

  2. Love that you’ve done Zac Power! My 11 year old loves it too. The character sounds a lot like my 9 year old and her homework…must be the age!

  3. This sounds like my eight year old son Connor. I will have to look into the Zack series. If they are anything like the Diary of A Wimpy Kid then my son will eat them up I think. You did a good job on the rewrite.

    • Zac Power is a great series. Test Drive is for early readers, and there are more advanced books. The author has planned them well 🙂

  4. How cute! I love how you kept the theme of the story, but you made it into your own.
    My niece is 7 and she is already at that stage!!

  5. Zac Power was the first series of books that got my son reading when I was starting to think he would never read for pleasure.

    the way you’ve told the story sounds pretty much like him too 😉

  6. I used to hate that feeling of sitting down to a blank page, all your work out in front of you, ready to go. Hang on, I still hate that feeling. Great work. Jimmy James is a real character. I’m enjoying reading about him!
