Looking at the title and the image on the front page what do you think the story is about?
By looking at the gage I think the story is about one of the family member losing all their saving.   

Why was Ai Ling’s father walking inside wobbling?
He was wobbling because he came back from the Mah-jong place and he was so janked that way he was wobbling.

How did her mother react to her father coming home at this time?
The mother was very very angry seeing the father came home very late she was banging the pots and the pans.   

Where had her father been, how did they feel about her father being at this place?
They feel sad because the father lose all their saving now only a little bit of their saving.   

Why was Ai’s mum banging and making as much noise as she could while putting the pots and pans away? She did that it is because she was really really angry at the father for keep going to the mah-jong place.  

In what way do Ai and her mother view her father as being ‘bad’?
By looking at the mather face I think Ai and her mother feel really anger way to the father by losing all their saving and keep going to the mah-jong place.

Is Ai happy at home? Why/why not? How do we know this?
Ai is really not happy because she said that she want to run away from home that how I know by reading what she was saying.

How can we gather that Ai’s mother was angry as a result of her father staying out late again? (Refer to the image and text) The mother is even more angrier than she ever was because the dad keep on coming home late at night every day.   

Where is Ai’s mother taking her and her brother? For what reason do you think her mother is doing this? Their mother is taking them to ever mah-jong place to look for the father because the mother is really angry at the father no matter what she say the father keep going

Predict what you think will happen next in the story. What is your reasoning for your prediction?
What will happen next that I think is that the mother will keep looking for the father if she fine the father I think that she will kill him.
