This storyboard does not have a description.
It's October, and the weather turns rainy. This makes it an even bigger pain for the Logan children to walk to school.The kids don't only have to worry about getting drenched (and wearing smelly dried calfskins to protect them from the rain), but they also have to worry about getting mud-splattered by the Jefferson Davis school bus, which won't slow down to prevent this.Little Man is especially upset by this, since he's very picky about his appearance.
Stacey seems to have a plan for something. He asks the others to meet him in the toolshed of the school at lunch. He has a plan to stop the bus from splashing them. But T.J. and Claude won't be invited to help out with this plan, since they wouldn't be able to keep their mouths shut about it
They dig a big hole in the middle of the road, making it look like the storm washed out the road.After school, the kids rush out to the road to see what will happen to the bus. The hole now looks like a twelve-foot lake in the middle of the road.The bus comes down the road, drives right into the watery hole d gets stuck. Victory!
At dinner that night, Mama tells Big Ma about the bus accident. She has no idea her kids were involved. Mama glad no one was hurt in the incident but she's glad it happened.
For the rest of the evening, the Logan kids can't stop laughing about the bus getting stuck.Suddenly, there is a knock at the door. Uh-oh. Are the kids going to get in trouble? No. But it's not good news. It's Joe Avery, bringing news about a mysterious "they" who are "riding" tonight
Mama sends the kids to bed, but Cassie sneaks into her brothers' room so she can hear what the adults are talking about.Apparently, the "night men" are riding, and Mr. Avery doesn't know why.Big Ma mentions that something must have happened to set them off. Cassie thinks that these men know about the bus accident and know that the Logans had something to do with it.
