This is the day that Moose has to give Yellow Roses to Mae Capone. Annie and Theresa are their also to see if Scout wants to play ball. Moose takes them to the field that Scout doesn't play at.

Moose buys have a dozen and they head back for the boat. When they get to the boat they see a lot of people and Mae Capone! Next the warden comes which makes it even harder to give her the flower. Moose comes up with an idea. He gives a flower to every women on the boat. When he gives one to Bea Trixle she gets all happy and says to Officer Trixle "You know my Birthday is coming up." Finally he gets the chance to give one to Mrs. Capone. When he gives it to her she says "Why, Thank you... Moose, isn't it?

Thoughts and Quetions. . .

*If Mrs. Capone knew what Moose's name was she had to find out some how? I think she found out maye because Al Capone sent her a letter becuase I think it saus in the last book that they go throught all the letters except family letters.


Ch. 16- Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Officer trixle is mad at Moosefor giving his wife a rose and calls him a ladies man. Next he is asking questions like "What are you kids doin on this run anyways?" and "Wasn't anything to do with Mae Capone being here?" When he asks this questions Moose gets all swety but trixle dosen't notice. Later Theresa notices that Mae Capone dropped her hannky. When Moose and Annie go to see it the hannky was gone!


Thoughts and Questions. . .

*What is a "Gramophone?" I looked it up and it is a Phonograph which is like a record player.
*Why is Darby mad at Moose for giving his wife a flower? Maybe he took it the wrong way and was just trying to make him mad.

Also she talks about how Moose " Likes" needlepoint.

Thoughts and Questions. . .

*Why is Piper out to get Jimmy's dad? Was it somthing that Jimmy or Theresa Did?
Answer- Maybe she is out to get him because Theresa came in right when they where about to kiss?

Thoughts and Questions. . .

*​It almost seems that Natalie is like in this little shell tha is telling her to act the way she should and every time she dosent it seems like a little bit of her is slowly coming out of it.

Thoughts and Questions. . .

Thoughts and Questions. . .

Ch. 23-Seven Finger's Candy Bars
In this chapter Moose and his dad are talking about Seven Fingers. Moose and his da hae to walk up a hill that is really windy so his dad can get a good view of San Francisco. Mooe first asks "What if Esther P. Marinoff School isn't as safe as we thought?" His dad says "What do you mean safe?" Moose says "What if Natalie isn't safe there?" Moose's da doesn't understand and says "Safe you mean how?" Moose says "What is Natalie s getting visitors?" Moose's dad says what kind of visitors.

Next they talk about how Natalie went to the doctor and the doctor said (Sorry it sounds like the Monkeys Jumping on the bed) that what she had was contagious and that she should be shipped off to a ranch in Arizona.

Thoughts and Quetions. . .

*What would happen if they didn't give Seven Fingers his Chocolate Bar?
*I think that Mr. Trixle should get fired because all it sounds like in the book that he is a lazy butt an all he does is just sit around and get other people in trouble.
*I might be getting in another chapter but to me it seems like Natalie is trying the best that shecan to escape her little prison that is holding her inside. Natalie is getting better becasue the last book all she did was stare at the ground but know she will glance at Moose and Make a small smile like she is trying her best to get out of the darkness.


Ch. 24- A Deal with the Warden's Daughter
In this chapter Moose needs to get his dad and Mr. Mattaman off of probation. To do so he needs to go talk to Piper. Moose was thinking of having Jimmy do it but then he would want to do it because she looks pretty and her face is soft like a brand new baseball but better. On his way up to Pipers house his mom says to him that she has to go to the city to maybe get a job for piano teaching. Moose trys to beg to see if Natalie can come but she says NO. Moose asks if he can ask dad and they can see what he says. When they ask him he says "Yes". Moose explains why they are going to Piper's and says if she is good he will bake her a lemon Cake. Natalie dosen't like this because Moose is a bad baker so she says "Buy". Moose starts Laughing. When they get to the Wardens house Natalie sees the mouse that Willy One Arm has and she is excited but Willy doesn't like just mouse he calls her Molly. Moose is scared becase he dosen't know how she will react. When Moose goes in Piper is ignoring him and it looks like she hasn't slept in two days. Moose keeps asking if she will come talk to him but she wont come. He finalle gets he to talk to him. He asks he did you but my dad on probation. She says "Yes". She says that Moose deserved it becasue he didn't stand upfor her. Also she tells Moose "Nobodycan er be mad at little Moosey." She says that she will square it away but she owes him. Next she kisses him. Later Jimmy come running up sayin that he threw the bar spreader but janet must have found it up on shore. Moose says we need to get it back.

Thoughts and Questions. . .

*Who is Buddy Boy? Is it the warden?
*Yet againg im going to say this Natalie is doing really good at trying not to throw tantrums. She can change a little but it's not like she will just turn into a normal kid.


Ch. 25- The Bad Guys are Locked Up
In this chapter Moose, Natalie, Theresa, and Jimmy all go to Janet's house so they can get the bar speader. When they get their they keep on ringing the door bell. Knw one comes. Jimmy says "Shall I go in" but Moose trys to open the door but it's locked. Moose thinks to himself "The doors are never locked on Alcatraz becuase all the bad guys are locked up." Jimmy then gets all mad at himself because when he threw it he threw it like a wimp. Moose says it's not your fault. Jimmy then says that moose shuld tell the truth for once and then walks away. Theresa is staning there with her mouth open and says that Jimmy never gets mad at anybody not even me! Piper then comes later and says that she has thought of the pay back the Moose has to pay. Piper want's Moose to go to the dinner at the officers club with her and Annie and see if they can find Al Capone because he is the waiter.

​ Thoughts and Questions. . .

*Why woul the Trixle's keep their door locked? Maybe becuase they where gone for the day?


Ch. 26- Al Capone is the Waiter
In this chapter they are cleaning every little spek of dust off Alcatraz because J. Edgar Hoover and Eliot Ness are coming to tour the place. When they go to the dinner Piper is singing and Annie is playing the Piano. When they where listening to her it sounded like she was a dead cow! Moose and Piper then go to the basement of the Officers club and head up a staircase to top which s where the pantry is located. A couple times they had tol hold their breathes becasue a person woul come in and look for something. At the end of the chapter Trixle says to every one that someone had lost their wallet. It says J. Edgar Hoover. The the warden says that you must have gotten your wallet pick pocketed.

Thoughts and Questions. . .

*Why would they have Piper sing if she was such a bad singer? Maybe because she was the Wardens Daughter?

When they go back Mrs. Mattaman is really mad at them and says they are in big trouble. Moose asks if Pipers mom is OK. She says I really don't know.

Thoughts and Questions. . .

*I have a prediction could Mrs. Williams give birth to atistic child? Will Piper then learn to like Natalie?
*Could Mrs. Caconi have Alsimeres. I think this becasue she said that she was here and then she was gone.

Thoughts and Questions. . .

*I think that Mr. Trixle is a big meany and that he should be proud of Moose for being their for Natalie. I don't think its fair that he just shipped his brother away like that. Just becuase they have Autisim doesn't mean they arn't like me and you. Mr. Trixle is MEAN.
