Newt as Captain Nobody rescues Ferocious the Ferret on the highway. He chased Ferocious amidst the busy traffic. He even waves his hand in the attempt to stop the traffic. The traffic stops and coincidentally, his action saves an airplane which landed in an emergency on the highway.

Newt gathers his courage to climb the water tower although the ladder is rusty and the tower structure is weak. He wants to help calm Reggie down. With the help his best friends, Cecil and JJ, Captain Nobody climbs the ladders to the top and slithers his way to reach Reggie. He then finds out that Reggie climbs the tower to vandalise the water tank but his left foot is stuck. He managed to get Reggie’s foot which was stuck. They both end up falling from the tower into a mattress as they descend the rotten ladder.

Newt suffers a broken ankle and two broken ribs when Reggie lands on top of him. Newt helps to save Reggie from falling from the water tower. He is later awarded with a golden key.

Captain Nobody shows tremendous bravery by stepping into the Sullivan’s jewellery store and prevents a robbery from happening.

OPINION

This incident shows Newt’s bravery. He risks his life to save Ferocious. At the same time, he saves innocent lives on board the aeroplane. If I were in the same situation, I would be afraid to run into a busy highway to chase after my pet. His action has inspired me to be courageous in facing any challenges in life. His courageous act should be admired as not many people are prepared to perform such brave act. In saving Reggie, Newt shows his bravery in conquering his own fear. He is a brave boy who has contributed to the society. His bravery is to be applauded as he takes action no matter what the consequences is.

 VALUE   : BEING HELPFUL


Newton walks Mr Clay, the locksmith, home after his hand suddenly comes out from the pile of cardboard boxes and grabs Newt by his ankle. He recognises the person as Mr Clay. His mother always calls Mr Clay whenever she needs to duplicate keys. Mr Clay is suffering from Alzheimer. He forgets his way home when he runs out of medicine. Although Cecil is skeptical at first, Newt convinces him that Mr Clay would do no harm. So he walks the old man home. He knows where Mr Clay lives as Mr Clay always parks his cherry red van in front of his house. Mrs Clay is relieved to see her husband return home safely.

OPINION

This shows that Newt is a helpful person. If I were Newt, I would do the same thing to my old neighbour if I find him wandering around. Without Newt’s action, Mr Clay would be lost and Mrs Clay would be so worried of her missing husband. His action has inspired me to be a helpful person to my family, friends and neighbours.

 VALUE  : BEING OPTIMISTIC


Newton does not let anything dampen his spirit and remains positive even though he is ignored by his schoolmates and his parents. Though he is ten years old, Newt accepts his parents’ neglect and copes with the pain of missing Chris. He does not blame or resent anyone. Even when his parents are at home, they do not spend time with him or even talk to him. Although he is sidelined by his friends at school and neglected by his workaholic parents at home, he accepts the situation without complain.

OPINION

This shows that Newt is an optimistic person. If I were in the same situation, I would not be as positive as Newt. Without Newt’s optimism, he would remain sad and feel down being neglected by his own parents and his friends. His action has inspired me to be optimist in facing bad times.
