Storyboard Text

  • Holling Hoodhood is a 7th grader that lives in a 'perfect' house, having an architect as a father
  • Holling's father is the owner of the Hoodhood and Associates and that is why his father wants everything to look good
  • At school, Holling, being a Presbyterian, is all alone when the north side (Jewish) of Holling's town heads to a Hebrew school and the south side (Catholic) heading to catechism classes. 
  • Therefore, Holling is stuck with Mrs.Baker every Wednesday and he is convinced that Mrs. Baker hates him. After several incidents, Mrs.Baker makes Holling read Shakespeare every Wednesday. 
  • At first, he thinks the reading is punishment. However, as he continues on reading he finds the books interesting. He, later on, plays the role of a fairy for a Shakespeare play.
  • Mrs.Baker further helps Holling by taking him to a Yankees game, helping him practice in running (she was an Olympic runner) and helping him gain more confidence.
