Do you think this Ickabog might be the last one on Earth?
What do you think will happen when Daisy sits beside the giant monster?
Make a cutout of the Ickabog and Daisy and act out the conversation you think will happen between them. You could use this image of the cave or make your own. You could also use an app like Keynote or Puppet Pals to help you.
