  1. oh, the scarlet ibis! gads, are they still making children read that horrifying story? why, i wonder, why?

  2. I’ve never heard of that story! In fact at first I thought LP was changing the Sara Orne Jewett story, The White Heron! I guess it’s good it wasn’t a contest, I would have lost.

  3. Oh, that story is so heartbreaking. I remember it well from when I was a literature textbook editor.
