  • Description
  • Files

While cleaning the schoolyard, Louis accepts a package for Mrs. Jewls. It is very large and heavy, but he carries it up 30 flights of stairs because he likes Mrs. Jewls and her students, and he thinks the package might be important.  When Louis finally gives Mrs. Jewls the package, she does something surprising with what’s inside in order to teach a lesson about gravity.
