"On Monday Morning" Adapted from "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain.
Monday morning arises, and Tom is not so happy, because as usual, he has to go to school. He tries to find some reason to not go, like some ailment. He has a loose tooth, but he decides not to complain about it because Aunt Polly will pull it out. Tom decides to cry for his toe after looking at his parts and remembering the doctor's words.
He starts making more noise. Sid is sleeping beside and too deeply to notice he is Tom's half brother. Tom shakes him a bit, then continues crying. When Sid got up and wants to get Aunt Polly, Tom tries to act like he doesn’t want him to, though he acts like he is on a bed and going to die. Sid rushes to call the aunt. Aunt Polly startled until she sees Tom, then she becomes much better as she understood his overacting. Tom realizes this and then complains about this tooth. She pulls it out with a thread and a fire. Tom is now better and wants to go to school.
