Young boy is told to get outside and play by mom who is off the page kind of like the adults in the old Peanuts show. Boy does not want to go but eventually makes it outside which he promptly labels as stupid - this word upset my younger students. Some of the humor of the book is better suited to older students and even adults. Seeing his friends and realizing they are all outside for the same reason they see the last leaf in the tree and decide it is a lucky leaf but only if it is caught before it falls which it does not seem inclined to do.
