I am reading a book called The Zebra Wall by Kevin Henkes. In the book there is a girl named Adine. She has four younger sisters named Bernice, Carla, Dot, and Effie. Their mom is having another baby and it’s name is going to start with an F. They all expected a girl because they have five girls already, but it’s a boy! They are trying to decide what it’s name should be. Should it still start with an F?
Adine’s Aunt Irene comes to help out with the baby and Adine hates her Aunt Irene. Aunt Irene was only supposed to stay for 3 weeks but it has been 3 months and she’s still there. Adine thinks Irene is really annoying. Irene reminds me of my Aunt Sue 😛 .
Adine and her sisters drew pictures of Aunt Irene and her cat, Deedee. They also wrote mean stuff about them. Adine puts the drawings in her sock drawer, but the next morning they’re gone! I am excited to see what happens next.
