Storyboard Text

  • Whirligig is a book by Paul Fleischman that narrates how your actions, positive or negative, can affect others.
  • In the book, a boy named Brent Bishop got into a car crash and unknowingly killed a girl named Lea Zamora. Lea's family asks Brent to place whirligigs of Lea in the four corners of the U.S. and Brent says yes.
  • The story displays how Brent changes, as he looses his feeling of isolation and he gains a sense of his own worth.
  • Paul Fleischman said the story was inspired by the myth of Hercules, which is how he got the idea of redeeming oneself.
  • These two ideas later came together to create Whirligig.
  • Years later, Paul was hiking and overheard a women talking about a relative who'd died in a car crash because of a drunk driver.
  • Fleischman grew up in Santa Monica, California with his father, Sid. His father greatly influenced his passion for writing and both Paul and Sid made great achievements in writing.
  • Whirligig is a book with a great message and it should be read by everyone.
