An Epic Duel


It's Carl. An escape pod just landed in front of the library. When I looked inside,a droid handed me a DVD labelled "Galactic History Video Preservation Project--the Epic Duel between Darth Bill and the Great and Powerful CARLMAN, Featuring the Amazing Trail Mix Theft and the Incredible Dance-Off." The droid told me to watch this impotratant piece of interplanetary history. Well, imagine my excitement! I watched it right away. Oh, what and epic duel it was!!! The clash of galactic titans! I'll share it with you--if you think you can stand nonstop thrills!!

PS--I'm sorry I had to steal Darth Bill's trail mix, but if I hadn't, he would have grown to gigantic size and stomped the city to dust with his pink shoes!!

I just finished reading Orphan Train Rider by Andrea Warren. It is a biography about a boy named Lee Nailing and his family. It is 1926 and America is in a recession, a lot like today. One family in particular is having a hard time. They are the Nailings and their mom has just died. They had 7 kids and their dad alone could not feed and take care of them all. The three oldest, Fred, Ross, and Evelyn had to live on the streets. The baby went to live with family friends. Their dad kept the toddler. But the two other kids named Lee and Leo went to an orphanage. Since their dad was not dead, he would sometimes come and visit them in the orphanage.

Lee had always wanted to be a train engineer. When he was told he would ride a train through the country all the way to Texas, he was excited. When they were boarding the train, he and his brother found out that their little brother, Gerald, going with them because their dad did not have enough money to take care of him after all. The train was full of orphans traveling from town to town. Whenever they stopped at a town, the orphans would have to line up so people could look at them and decide if they wanted to adopt any of the children. Lee, Leo and Gerald get separated and go to live with different families. Read this amazing true story. Do they ever see each other again? Do they live happily ever after? Read and find out.
