Two people have weird things that happen in this book. The first person is Elna Hicks. She wins a huge refrigerator, but she did nothing to win it! The next person is Rancher Hicks. He sees a turtle cross Main Street. It?s so weird because they had never seen it before and they make the day a holiday.
When Elna?s cat had kittens, it reminded me of when my cat had kittens. They were fun and I wish I could have kept them. When Elna won the lottery ticket, it reminded me of the lottery tickets my mom buys. I want to win the lottery! Bernie and Kurt are playing a checker game and I like to play checker games. I don?t get to play very often because I don?t have the time. Elna met the President and I want to meet the President.
Read this book to find out what other weird things happen next. I recommend this book to people that like to travel to a faraway town that is not very busy. If you would like to stay at a ranch, then read this book.
