1. What words would you use to describe Aunt
Possible Answer: grouchy, old, mean, unkind, sick, lonely, unhappy
2. Do you believe Liza's comment that ghosts
can't rest if something they did during their lives is causing their
loved ones to suffer? Why?
Possible Answer: I don't believe what she said. I don't
believe it because I don't believe in ghosts. I think they are
just something people made up to scare other people.
3. The title of Chapter 4 is "The
Legend." What is a legend you have heard of?
Possible Answer: A legend I think of is the Legend of the Loch
Ness Monster. It is a legend because people cannot prove that the
Loch Ness Monster is true. There are many people who claim to have
seen it and it is written down that they have seen it. However, it
is still a legend because there is no proof of its existence.
4. The author tells the reader that none of the
children noticed the dark shadow by the refrigerator. Who or what
do you think the dark shadow is?
Possible Answer: I think the shadow is Eddie's mom. I
think she followed Eddie and Howie to the house. They did not want
to go and they argued with her. I think she followed them to make
sure they did what they were told to do. She knew Aunt Matilda was
sick and she wanted to make sure that she had a meal to eat.
5. What do you predict will happen in Chapter 7?
Possible Answer: I think the kids will go get the food that
Aunt Matilda told them to get. I think something bad will happen
on the way back to her house. Maybe a dog will attack them and
take the food away and eat it on them. They will then have to tell
Aunt Matilda and she will be madder and crabbier than ever.
