How to Steal a Dog
Audience: 4th Grade - 6th Grade
According to an Aesop fable, the one about the hares and the frogs, 'There is always someone worse off than yourself.' Well Georgina Hayes figures that Aesop must have been stupid, because there was no one worse off than she. After her dad left the family with not enough money to pay the rent she, her mom, and her little brother had been living in their car. They cleaned up in the mornings in the bathroom at McDonold's or the drugstore or the pancake house and then went to school in wrinkled, dirty clothes. So when Georgina sees an old tattered sign offering a $500 reward for the return of someone's dog, she thinks she has the answer. After all stealing someone's dog to get a reward is OK if your really, really desperate. Or is it?
