1) Write a short piece on your blog, explaining what “friendship” means to you. Who has been a good friend to you? When have you been a good friend to someone else? What does it mean to be a “good friend” to someone?

2) Do you think it’s important to have good friends?

3) Why is Fox described as a ‘flickering tongue of fire’? What does this tell us about the effect he will have on Dog and Magpie.

4) Think of five words that describe Dog, Fox and Magpie.

5) Magpie feels that Fox’s smell fills up the cave. She isn’t really describing his smell, but how she makes him feel. What does this tell you about how she feels about Fox?

6) Why do you think Fox splits up Dog and Magpie? Would he have done this if he had more friends of his own?

7) Why would Fox’s scream be a scream of despair? Why would it be one of triumph?

8) Do you think Magpie was really good friends with Dog? Why/why not?
