Messy Miranda

De
64 pages
Miranda has one messy desk. It's full of books, pencils, science projects and…other stuff. Too much stuff, says her teacher, Ms. Basil. On a family visit to her Uncle Aldo's one night, Miranda wonders if some of his magician's tools might offer a solution to her messy-desk problem. Sneaking off to the magic room, Miranda finds Uncle Aldo's impressive collection of top hats. Miranda knows that magic top hats can hold lots of things, why not the mess from her desk? At first, the hat seems to do the trick, but soon things start to go horribly wrong. As Uncle Aldo says, you have to be careful with magic.

ChapterOne
“All right, class,” said Ms. Basil, “it’s time to clean out your desks.” Miranda got nervous whenever Ms. Basil said that. It was the weekly desk cleanup. She hated desk cleanup more than spelling tests. She hated it more than fixing her writing. In fact, Miranda could not think of anything she hated more. Other students loved the weekly desk cleanup, which happened every Friday. Neela used that time to sharpen her pencils, since her desk was always neat and tidy. She never shoved loose papers inside, or broken pencils, or leftover lunch. No dirt ever came near her desk.

Miranda’s desk was another story. Ms. Basil came by Miranda’s desk and bent down. She took a long look inside. “Miranda, what’s in your desk?” “My books,” Miranda said. “And…?” “My pencils.” “And…?” “My science project.” “And…?” “Some other stuff.” Miranda’s face started turning red. “Alotof stuff, I’d say,” Ms. Basil said. She stood up straight and crossed her arms. “Too much stuff.” Miranda gulped. She looked over to Neela and her friends. They were already at the door, waiting for the recess bell. Neela had a bright-orange skipping rope in her hand. “Hey, Miranda, are you going to skip with us at recess?”
