My Favorite Part—Hatchet
favorite part in this book, Hatchet, is when he was first
stranded. The reason I picked this subject is because it is a
really neat experience being stranded on the ocean or whatever
by yourself (not that I want to try it!).
favorite part is when Brian makes fire. This is my favorite part
because when he makes fire he is not alone anymore. He thinks
that the fire is his friend because he has nobody to talk to or
favorite part in this story is when the guy driving the plane
has a heart attack. The reason this is my favorite part is
because he keeps passing gas and it makes Brian want to throw
part so far is when Brian falls out of the airplane. I like it
because it scared me and I like to be scared!
Letter to the Author—Hatchet
Your book is awesome! I enjoyed the thrill of going from chapter
to chapter. A lot of the time I wouldn’t want to put the book
down. You can write outstanding mystery books or anything for
that matter. It’s no wonder you got a Newberry Honor award.
You’d think a girl wrote this book.
This book was very interesting and full of adventure. Why did
you think this book should have been called, “Hatchet”? I would
also like to know why did there have to be a “big secret.” I
really love your book.
If I Were in Brian's Shoes—Hatchet
If I were in
Brian’s shoes I would not have probably gotten out of the plane
to start with. I would have had a heart attack too because I
can’t stand fish and I wouldn’t be able to catch anything. I
would have freaked out when I saw the bear and the wolf.

were the main character...
These last few days have been really rough. The first thing I
would like to write about is the big secret. I mean how could my
mom do this to my dad and and I? I really thought she was happy. I
wouldn’t be in this mess if they didn’t get a divorce. My next
big problem is being inside of a plane I didn’t know was going
down with me along for the ride. I was so scared when I saw the
man have a heart attack and die right next to me and the plane
go down. The very last part that made me sick was those berries
I ate. They were very nasty. I have never felt so much pain and
smelled a worse smell since the pilot died. Well, that’s it for
How are you? I’m fine. Well, a little. I can now start a fire
with no matches! Can you believe it? I can. I really want you
and Dad to get back together. Well just to let you know I’m lost
somewhere in the woods of Canada. A plane came by but it didn’t
see my signal. Well, I have to get back to trying to find food.
Ok? Well, I love ya.
Terry I said “Hi.”
I thought today would be wonderful. I would get to see my dad
and spend time with him. Boy was I wrong! While we were flying,
the pilot had a heart attack and died. Sadly, he jerked the
plane to the left and now we’re off course. Oh, I hope someone
Let me tell you what I had to eat. I ate these horrible gut
cherries. Then I found raspberries. The next day I found turtle
eggs. They all were good except the gut cherries. They made me

Date? Time? Today was weird. I fell asleep and kept drifting in
and out. About the fifth or sixth time, I heard a slithering
noise. It started getting closer and closer. I was so terrified
I had to smack myself to calm down. It came in my shelter and I
pushed it back and I got something in my leg. I then figured out
the creature. It was a porcupine. I had to pull the quills out
of my leg; it stung so bad.
Today was a day I would never forget. It was the
scariest moment. I got into a plane crash—unbelievable but it

what if we didn’t have anything but the clothes on our back and
a hatchet. We would probably not live. If we had to live like
cave people, we would probably die. –Carrie
