About this deal

|We komen er ook achter waar de titel op slaat, en ik moest wel lachen. Omar toch. Wat een problemenmagneet ben je! Welcome to the imaginative brain of Omar! You might not know me yet,but once you open this book you’ll laugh so hard that snot will come out of your nose.* I love, love, love this book! I will have a copy of this text in all my future classes and would recommend it to all. Omar vond ik meteen een erg leuke hoofdpersoon, hij was grappig, vriendelijk, en hij was ook erg lief naar zijn zus en broertje. Ik vond het erg leuk hoe makkelijk hij vrienden maakte, ik zou ook wel die skill willen hebben, lijkt me een erg nuttige en handige skill.

In dit boek vind je: een nieuwe school, een nare pestkop, een draak en een zombie, een suikerfeest (jippie) en cadeautjes (dubbeljippie) en heel veel toestanden…” Yet when mean Mrs Rogers has an accident, Omar's family is there to help. And when Omar and bully Daniel get stranded on a school trip in London, Omar realises that Danny isn't so tough after all... Use the style of the pictures and bold and different sized writing in the book to encourage children to create a book of their own lifestyles or challenging situations they have experienced. It would be good for the reader to have some knowledge of the Muslim faith, including holidays such as Ramadan and Eid. However, the book is very informative about some of these areas and is explained in a child friendly way. It would be a good text to read alongside learning about Muslim festivals. In this story, Omar and his best friends Daniel and Charlie are on a mission to get a book signed by famous author, Angelina Kind. (Even just finding out the reason they want to get a signed copy was enough to make my eyes watery. I can't make it through one of these books without crying!) The adventure they go on is filled with unexpected challenges, which test them all in different ways. I loved following their journey and I felt their pain every time another thing went wrong. The way the story ended was brilliant and linked very cleverly to everything leading up to it. The whole story was a rush of heartwarming emotions, followed by feeling sorry for a character, indispersed with lots of laughter and I loved it!The first and most obvious teaching point comes from the approach to different religions, in this case the characters were Muslim. Mian has included facts about this religion, such as the names for each prayer of the day, which will allow the children to learn about Muslims beliefs and traditions whilst reading. This would be a great teaching opportunity, to get the children to learn about different religions and appreciate the differences between people. Use the example where Omar’s feeling frightened, nervous, or worried. The class teacher will encourage the children to write a diary entry to express the feelings of Omar’s imaginative world with the dragon (H20) helping him to overcome these feelings. The children could think about why the dragon is important to Omar and how it supports his thoughts and feelings

Omar and his family have had to move house due to Omar’s mother getting a new job. Omar’s family are of the Muslim faith and go to the Mosque. Omar starts his new school where he makes a new friend, Charlie. However, also in Omar’s class is Daniel who mean! During an art lesson, Daniel purposefully spills dirty paint water on Omar’s painting in an attempt to ruin it, but Omar manages to make it better and receives lots of praise from the teacher which infuriates Daniel. Wildly imaginative Omar’s free-association narrative, laced with expressive hand lettering and Mafaridik’s playfully exaggerated line art, remains chipper and uplifting.”– Publishers Weekly I really enjoyed reading this book as I feel like it is very educational as it explains quite a lot about the Islam religion which can be useful when teaching children about Islam. Especially as it tells the reader about the different prayers that they do everyday, tells the reader about Ramadan and why they do it and also about the two different Eid's that Muslims celebrate throughout the year. Also, this book can teach children how they can stand up to bullies and what should do if they are being bullied in school. This book has excellent illustrations that go alongside the text and they are illustrations that make you feel like you are inside Omar's head and following him through every emotion that he feels.

None of the other teachers will say where she is so Omar and his friends, Daniel and Charlie, decide they have to investigate. As they collect their evidence, everything seems to point to one unlikely conclusion: Mrs Hutchinson has been abducted by aliens! An exciting middle-grade debut starring a Muslim boy with a huge imagination. An NPR Best Book of the Year.

Het boek is ook heerlijk geillustreerd en er waren echt illustraties op bijna elke pagina, klein of groot. At the beginning of this book, the reader is given some information about each member of Omar's family and a little illustration of them which I thought was a really good idea because the reader then instantly gets an idea of Omar's life. Investigate other chapter books with sketchy pictures, such as Planet Omar Adventure and Horrid Henry books. Think about the similarities and differences between the books are the themes the same.There is a range of teaching opportunities and themes the class teacher could use to help children have a discussion about the novel. Planet Omar has all of the everyday life family drama and silly humour of Tom Gates and Sam Wu, and it's wonderful to read a funny book for kids featuring a Muslim family.

Ik vond het alleen heel jammer dat wederom (het lijkt wel een trend want ik zie het in steeds meer boeken) dat pestkopjes maar vergeven en bevriend moeten worden want boehoehohoeeh ze hebben het zo moeilijk vanwege (vul hier iets in wat toepasselijk is) en dus kunnen ze er niks aan doen dat ze een stel etters zijn. Ik vind het gewoon echt niks. Ik ben zelf een flinke tijd in mijn leven gepest, en sorry ik zou echt geen tiet geven om een zielige sobstory van een pester. Je hebt mijn leven verpest, me helemaal gebroken, ga weg met je sobstory. Dat geeft je echt geen reden om iemands leven te verpesten. Plus, het voelt voor mij gewoon alsof het een slecht bericht geeft aan mensen die gepest zijn. Ja, maar die arme pester(s) kon/kunnen er toch niks aan doen. Ach en wee. :This book was an enjoyable read overall. When I began reading, the first thing I compared this book too was those of David Walliams' due to the use of different fonts on certain words to make them stand out - like Walliams, the chosen fonts tend to be somewhat related to what the word is saying, e.g 'a big cheeky grin' is written on a face in the shape of a smile.
