Point of View
Leslie sat in front of Paul. She had two long, brown pigtails that reached all the way down to her
waist. Paul saw those pigtails, and a terrible urge came over him. He wanted to pull a pigtail. 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. But most of all, he
just wanted to pull one.

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to
do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or
conversations in it, “and what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “without pictures or
conversations?” So she was considering, in her own mind whether the pleasure of making a
daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a
White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.
