  • 2. It all began when Mrs. Frizzle showed our class a film strip about the human body. We knew trouble was about to start, because we knew Mrs. Frizzle was the strangest teacher in the school.
  • 3. They spoke no more until camp was made. Henry was bending over and adding ice to the bubbling pot of beans when he was startled by the sound of a sharp snarling cry of pain from among the sled dogs. Henry saw the circle of eyes that burned in the darkness just beyond the firelight, and he knew he would have to act quickly.
  • 4. Harold took a deep breath and slowly started to peel the gauze from the wound on his grandmother’s leg. He knew she was in great pain, so he worked as gently as he possibly could. His grandmother gasped, but held back a cry because she knew Harold was doing the best any twelve-year-old boy could, and besides, he was the only one left to help her.

He wanted to wrap his fist around it, feel the hair between his fingers, and just yank. He thought it would be fun to tie the pigtails together, or better yet, tie them to her chair.

  • 8. As the girl walked up the hill, she realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet. The cardinal tipped his head back and drew breath to sing, but just as the first note passed his beak he heard the crack of a dead branch far below his perch high in the maple tree. Startled, he looked down, cocking his head to one side and watching with great interest while the man below tried to hide himself behind the tree.
  • 9. As he turned to take the ball, a dam burst against the side of his head and a hand grenade shattered his stomach. Engulfed by nausea, he pitched toward the grass. His mouth encountered gravel, and he spat frantically, afraid that some of his teeth had been knocked out.
  • 10. Matt had to talk to someone. He had to do something to keep from howling like a dog at the horror of it all. He wasn’t a clone! He couldn’t be! Somehow, somewhere a mistake had been made. Words he’d overheard from the doctor came back to him: Clones go to pieces when they get older. Was that going to happen to him?
