from The Giver by Lois Lowry
Miss Mackle said that Room 2B was putting on a Thanksgiving play for the parents.
"I want to be Squanto," I said. "I want to show the Pilgrims how to plant corn with dead fish bodies."
"Okay, Doug, you can be Squanto."
"I want to be the dead fish body," Harry said.
It was still dark out when Judy woke up early the next morning. She tiptoed downstairs to the kitchen and started to save the world.
She hoped she could save the world before breakfast.
Mrs. Granger stood up ubruptly and said, "Then that is all for today, Nicholas. And may the best word win."
There was a frown on her face, but her eyes were different, almost happy.
Nick was halfway down the hall before it hit him. She likes this war, and she wants to win real bad!
