Read from the Book

Chapter 3: The Stupid Smelly Bus The bus wasn''t like my daddy''s car at all. It was very big inside. And the seats didn''t have any cloth on them. The little curly girl was sitting near the front. And so I  tapped on her. "Guess what?" I said. "Mother said for me to sit here." "No!" she said. "I''m saving this seat for my best friend, Mary Ruth Marble!"

I covered my ears so it couldn''t get inside my head. ''Cause if loud, screechy noises get inside your head, you have to take an aspirin. I saw that on a TV commercial. Then the bus door opened again. And a dad and a boy with a grouchy face got on. The dad smiled. Then he plopped the grouchy boy right next to me. "This is Jim," he said. "I''m afraid Jim isn''t too happy this afternoon
