In our story James and the Giant Peach the aunts decide to make some money by getting people to buy a ticket so that they can see the peach.

In your book take a new page. 

You are going to make a poster to advertise the giant peach using lots of sentences that could use exclamation marks.

Draw the giant peach and then think about the different sentences that you could write. Look at my example below.  I've used 7 exclamation marks! How many will you use?

Here are some useful words too.
