BOO'S SURPRISE
1 The Surprise Boo ran into the house. "A dinosaur! A new dinosaur!" she shouted. "Not another one," her brother, Sammy, said. "Sammy, this was so exciting," Boo said. "I was sitting in the tree reading a book." "That was exciting--reading a book in a tree? I do that all the time." "I'm getting to the exciting part," said Boo. "I was reading my book, and I heard a very, very heavy thump behind the trees." "Something was behind the trees?" "Yes, and I knew it was a dinosaur because the thump was very, very loud. I have heard dinosaurs thump like that before." "So you went behind the trees and there it was. Big deal," said Sammy. "No! Wait! I haven't gotten to the exciting part. I climbed down the tree as fast as I could. Then I ran through the trees as fast as I could," said Boo. "And there it was," said Sammy. "No! It was gone. Now I'm getting to the exciting part." "Please do." "This dinosaur left me a big surprise." "What?" "A giant egg!" Text copyright © 2009 by Betsy Byars Illustrations copyright © 2009 by Erik Brooks
