Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Sizzling start = In words and images, we are introduced to Macca and his best friend Al. Pebble = Al is clumsy - he falls into the stream and gets bitten by a fish. Brick = They enter a talent competition, but all the music they make is absolutely awful! Boulder = They decide it's hopeless and are about to give up when Al shakes his fist and Macca gets an idea. Exciting ending = They dance and shake at the talent show. They come last but they don't care because they had so much fun!
