A lesson I learned was that you shouldn't bet on things that you are not one hundred percent sure about. I learned this because in the story Tommy tried to buy a marble, but he didn't have enough money.
The character that reminded me of someone that I know was the meanest kid on the block. He reminded me of my brother because he always wants to sell me stuff for ten dollars, but I don't do it.
The story reminds me of when my brother tried to trade one of his bad baseball cards for one of my good ones. He tried to trick me because mine was more valuable than his. He thought I would go for it, but I knew what he was doing, and I didn't trade.
My favorite part was when Tommy and his brother got along at the end because it was nice and in the beginning they hated each other.
I would recommend this story to people that like to collect stuff because in the story there are a lot of things that people can collect that are in this story.
