The Lesson

The Lesson.

by Emelia King, year 8, Evans Bay Intermediate; illustrations by Sarah Trolle 

Author’s note: The following is based on a true story that was told to me by my great-grandmother. While the story is real, most of the names are fictional.

Elsie gave a small sigh as she watched her granddaughter whizzing around the field. Cece was rambunctious, feisty, and – most importantly – persuasive, and she’d finally persuaded Elsie to let her drive the ride-on mower.
