One of the eagles from Franklin’s group gets lost in the mouse’s mouth. Fortunately, the mouse burped, and the eagle flew out. Franklin goes back to save his friend while the rest of the group flies away. Franklin distracts the mouse by dancing the Irish jig, so his friend can get away. The mouse does the jig too! But then they start fighting again about who dances the best. The smallest eagle says “You’re both great dancers!

By Maggie, Mira, Branden, Sydney, and Javon, Lincolnwood Elementary School
Dear The Bosses,
