World of Tan 6 - Junk

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

This is a continuation of the story inĀ World of Tan 5 - Rocket.

With the new year underway business at Granma T's is slowly gathering pace. Small jobs here, deliveries there and the first big removal is underway.

Mr Cheung, the local restaurateur is closing down his old restaurant. He and his family are moving 'lock, stock and barrel' onto the main island in the bay. There, he is opening his new restaurant under the name of 'Gat Marn'.

The children and all the workmen are already there.

Little Fung is packing away into trunks as quickly as possible, all the plates, bowls and glasses as well as the cutlery. She is being extra careful - all damages have to paid for! Meanwhile, Little Ming is stacking away in crates all the tins of food, packets of vegetables and boxes of fruit. This is a safer chore for him to do as often he has butter fingers!

The men have hopefully finished stacking the furniture ready for stowing it all securely inside the van. The gas, the water and the electricity have all been disconnected.

Everyone must now meet up with Mai Ling at the dockside as only she knows where Mr Cheung's new business is to be found.

She also has the ferry tickets.

In the meantime, complete the silhouette of the junk they are about to sail in.

The story continues in World of Tan 7 - Gat Marn.
