The Railway Children - Interesting Character

Question
Based on the novel you have read, write about an interesting character. Give reasons and examples to support your answer.

Model Answer
     I read the novel, "The Railway Children" by Edith Nesbit. In this novel, I find that Bobbie is a very interesting character. 
     I find her interesting because, she is a brave girl. This is shown when there was a landslide. Half of the hillside crashed down onto the railway line. The  train was in danger. The children used the girls’ red petticoat to make six flags to warn the train. The train came down the track too fast. Bobbie ran onto the railway line waving two flags. The train stopped twenty metres away from Bobbie. Here, it is very clear that Bobbie is a brave girl and I am sure not many children her age would do this.
     She is an interesting character because she is very loving. This is shown when Mother was ill. The children did not have money to buy the things listed by the doctor.  Bobbie and her siblings got help. She loved her mother very much and got all the things in the doctor’s list for her mother with the help of the old gentleman. The old gentleman gave all the things in the list and some extra  things. 
     Bobbie  has many good qualities and that is why I find her interesting.  We should make her  our role model.

    1. Hi, this is more or less the same like all other responses. You can say what you feel when reading certain part of the novel. For example, " I am touched by many of Bobbie's actions especially when Mother falls ill. The children did not have money to buy the things listed by the doctor. Bobbie and her siblings got help. She loved her mother very much and got all the things in the doctor’s list for her mother with the help of the old gentleman. The old gentleman gave all the things in the list and some extra things.I am very touched by their love towards their mother and how they showed it."
      This is a sample paragraph for this type of question.

    2. Nur Haziqah, like what syahmi mentioned, yes you should stick to one tense; if you use present tense, you have to use present tense through out the essay. If you start with past tense then you have to use past tense. Read the model answers in this blog and analyse them..All the best

  7. Waalaikumsalam Nur Adilah, you can use the event 'when mother falls ill' as the evidence for responsibility. Describe what Bobbie and her siblings do when mother falls ill.
