Use wordhippo.com to help with any words you are unsure of such as, ‘filling-station’, ‘basin’ and ‘lavatory’. Make a note of the definition and synonyms of the word.

Now create a character profile for Danny based on what you have read in Chapter 1. Make sure to use words and phrases from the text such as, ‘During his early years, Danny spent all day in the workshop helping his father with cars.’
