Eight year old Adrianna shares TEN APPLES UP ON TOP with Mr. George, our art teacher. She is particularly impressed by the page where the tiger (or an animal that looks like a tiger) is balancing ten apples on top of his head.
Gene, up to his elbows in model magic and tempera paint, is never too busy to honor a child, “Wow, Adriana, that’s amazing! I think I could maybe do one apple, but I don’t think I could do that many.”
Adriana is more than a little annoyed, “Mr. George, these guys are professionals!”
