    My Thoughts
    When I was reading this book I felt every story Jack told had a lesson to teach about dealing with life, it's ups and downs, friendships, loyalty, trustworthiness, compassion, caring, love.

    One imparticular I felt was teaching that we shouldn't knock someone down about their mistake when they already feel bad about the mistake ethey made. Many times I think people like to retell stories when someone did a foolish thing because it makes them feel better about themselves but it really hurts the person who did the foolish thing that they hafve to relive it again, and again, and again, every time the tale is told.

    I'm going to never do that. Do you know which chapter I'm referring to? Tell me a lesson you learned from his tales?

    Who do you think you would want to be if you lived during the medieval times?

    Your house is on fire what do you do?
    ok - historians agree that Dolley was a very kind, polite, smart lady who was able to coordinate political parties with skill. But really, if my house was on fire I don't think I would go around my house and gathering the pictures of a wall. I think if I was able to grab them on my way out easily fine. Dolley spent a lot of time to get George's picture out of the president's mansion. The servcants had to finally use an axe if I remember correctely. Although, the picture's likeness has been reproduced many times since that it only goes to show she did a save a very important piece of our history by saaving his portrait.

    I'm not sure I knew before this book how the "white house" became the white house. I lewarned something new, did you?

    Favorite Part
    OK, there is no way I could believe that everyone did not know Petunia was a pig and not Virginia, the pianist. A pig that dresses herself and cooks for herself and can drive a car? What a fantasy. I need to make sure I put a fantasy label on this book.

    My favorite part was when she was at the ball and dancing the tango with the governor trying to get to the fountain of chocolate which she thought was a fountain of mud.

    What was your favorite part?

    Thoughts after reading
    As I read this book I know it would come to no good for the baker. Greed, greed, greed. He never learned to enjoy what he had instead of always wanting more. Plus, when his wife went off on the bed in hopes of fixing things and finally accepted her lot in life and asked to be sent back I think she learned to be happy with what she had. Tjhey learned the hard way that things could be worse.

    It was fun imagining the bed waking up as they got and stretching its leg and anxious to get up and fly around. Although, I like my two feet on the ground. Would you like to own a bed that flies through the night?

    Thoughts after reading this book
    While reading this I was hoping that Van would not die from Leukemia. I wanted a happy ending. This book made me think of Defiance for he too had cancer. But alas, he is an acorn who does not become a tree and I continued reading as the tears fell from my face.

    I liked how Lenny paid tribute to Van with Bob's help. It was very fitting and personal to Lenny and Van. I think the kids will be nicer to Lenny since this happened too. What do you think?
