    Authors Message;
    1; Everything belongs somewhere.
    2; Nothing is ever lost, it always has somewhere to belong.

  2. Title: The lost thing.
    Author: Shaun Tan.
    S.L.1.S: a boy finds a thing that seems lost.

    I think that the authors message is if you find something unusual, leave it alone. My evidence is because if you don’t leave it alone, it could harm you. For example it could be deadly and it might kill you! Or it might be waiting for its parents and family to return and go home, or if it gets killed, it’s family would be very sad to lose a member of the family. It would be your fault to!

  3. Tittle: The lost thing
    Author: Shaun tan
    Sl1s: A lost thing that a man found on the beach and try’s to found who own it and cares for it.

    Author message: I think that the authors message is that it does not mater how someone looks you might have something in common with them. I think that because in the book the boy thinks that the thing is scarce but they actually make friends.

  4. Tittle: The Lost Thing
    Author: Shaun Tan
    Sl1S: A young man finds a lost thing and try’s to find a good home for it.

    Author’s message: I think the author’s message is if you find something don’t ignore it. I think this because he notice it when he was looking for bottle tops and they played together then became friends then he found a home for it and he’s not finding lost things anymore.

    My second author’s message: I think another author’s message is if you look for something you might find it. I think this because the man was looking for the sign that would send them to a better place for the lost thing and he found it because he was trying hard.

  5. Title : The lost thing.
    Author: Shaun Tan
    Sl1S: A boy found a lost thing wondering along the beach and he didn’t now how owned the ghost thing.

    Authors message: The authors message is, It doesn’t mater how you are you respect each other and you don’t say anything mean to any one who is different.
    Treat others the way that you want to be treated. Even though you are normal and they are different to you don’t go off and talk behind their back you have to respect who you are and respect who they are as well. And if you be nice the person you might make a friend as well as not being mean.

    The boy thought that it was mean but he decided to help the lost thing ensued of left it their.

  6. Title: the lost thing.
    Author: Shaun Tan.
    SL1S: a boy finds a lost thing and takes it to its home where you would not find it if you we’re not looking for it.

    I think the author message was if you find something try and help it out if you can. Everything does belong don’t leave anything out and allways be nice I think this because on the video it said you don’t find that many lost things any more so I think that lots of people have been helping lost things and when people help lost things there won’t be that many more lost things to be found in the world. I think that is what the authors message was.

  7. Tittle: The lost thing
    Author: Shaun Tan
    Slis: Shaun tan found this lost thing and he wanted to find who it belongs to and his been waiting to find out.

    The authors message was when you find something that’s not yours and you want to give it back to someone and don’t know who it is you should probably take to the lost grey city.

    Evidence: The boy took it to a place were all the lost things where home.

  8. Title The lost thing
    Author: Shaun Tan
    Slis about a boy who finds a lost thing and helps it find a home.

    I think the authors message is everyone belongs somewhere even if your different.
    I think this because we all belong and in the text the lost thing found somewhere to live.

  9. Title: The Lost Thing.
    Author: Shaun Tan.
    SLIS: A young boy what was a adventures, like to exemplar for new things what people didn’t know and he was friendly.

    I think the author was try to say that where ever you go you will find something where know one want realiea and care about because the young boy was looking around people where walking and doing things and not making friends with anyone. I think that because the young boy was playing with the lost thing and the young boy and the lost thing became friends.

  10. Title: The Lost Thing
    Author: Shaun Tan
    SLIS: A young teenager finds a lost thing which is all alone on the beach and he tries every possible way to find somewhere where it could stay and be happy.

    I think the authors message was if something or someone is lost don’t turn your back, help the thing/person to find its way home. I think this because the boy wanted to help the lost thing to find a place for the to stay. Where it could be safe and happy because no one realised the lost thing and no one wanted to help it.

    The authors message was if someone/something was lost and they didn’t know the way home. Then you try to help it in every possible way to find and give it a home or a place to stay, where it can run around, be happy and most of all to enjoy its-self. I think this because no one was interested in helping the lost thing and no one even realised the thing was lost.

    Tittle: The lost thing
    Author: Shaun Tan
    SLIS: A boy finds something lost on the beach and try’s to finds its owner.

    In the book there was a man just wondering on the beach until he comes across something lost. He thought it was not nice so the the lost thing threw a ball to him so then he began to think it was friendly. No one has noticed it on the beach except him. He stared playing with it with the ball the lost thing threw at him. No one has claimed it so he tried to find its owner he failed to find its owner because no one has claimed it.

    His mum was worried that the lost thing might has dirty feet. He’s dad was worried the it might carry diseases. So he took it to the garage he said to him self I can’t keep the lost thing in here forever because what if my parents come to get a tool then they would surely find out. He went inside to go watch television and then this thing cam up. It said have you found any thing lost because if you have come to this place. He found a safe place for it and they both lived happily ever after

  13. Title: The Lost Thing
    Author: Shaun Tan
    SL1S: A man finds a Lost Thing and takes care of it.

    I think the hidden message is:
    No matter what your size is, you will always have a place in someone’s heart. I believe this because in the movie and the book, the man seemed very upset to let the Lost Thing go.

  14. After you have watched the video, you will all write down an authors message and support it with evidence. You will need to think carefully about the hidden messages within the text.

    BIG IDEA/S:
    I think one of the big ideas is, everyone belongs somewhere in the world. I think this because it is true. Some people may not belong where they’re meant to belong but they will eventually end up where they really belong. I also think this is a big idea because it tells everyone the importance a in life and that we all belong somewhere. This is incredibly important to share with people. It can help people in their lifetimes because they can share the ideas on to their children that will continuously keep on sharing the moral.

    ———————————————————————————————————-

    Another big idea I think this could be is, if there is something lost and it needs help, help it out. This goes for everyone in the world. If you help someone or something out you might get something in return. You could get money or possibly get help in return… Which is incredibly nice! My evidence to the big idea is, it. An help people in their lives. You can get special rewards for helping and helping is used in a lot of things such as, teaching, working and sometimes even when you’re a student. It is a very important thing in our lives.

    ———————————————————————————————————-

    My last authors message is caring for people can help your life. I think this is a message because it tells people to do something very important and it help share ideas. I think this is important because people would think this message is stupid. BUT IT ISN’T!!! I think all people should have to share ideas.
