6. Write your opinion about the book. What part of the book did you like the
most? Which one you didnt like? Why? What character did you like? Which
one you didnt like? Why? (about 50 words)

The part of the book that I liked the most was when they rescued Peter from the
mysterious boat and the one that I least loved was that a person was very abusive
and want to do what he wants. My favorite character was Peter because in other
reasons he was very brave. The character I didn't like was Mr Brown because he
was a bad and irresponsible person. The end I liked because they solve the
problem with Mr Brown and they all end up happy.
