The little girls were in two straight lines and broke their bread and brushed their teeth and went to bed. Ms. Clavel said, something is not right! And she went to the girls? room and Madeline was crying because she had a pain in her stomach. She got a scar from taking her appendix out! Then the girls went back home and Ms. Clavel said something is not right, again, and all the girls were crying because they wanted to take their appendix out too! Ms. Clavel said to them to sleep and they did. So she turned out the light and closed the door? and that?s all there is, there isn?t any more!

My favorite part was when Madeline?s dad gave her toys and candy because it was special. My least favorite part was when the girls left their house. They were sad! I like this book because it was a little sad and a little happy.

I will recommend it to kids in the hospital because it will make them be happy and brave. I will also recommend it to my friends.
