    Three years later, Swiss Cheese has taken a job as the regiment's paymaster. Not only are the students telling about courage, but they are also exhibiting it by speaking in front of the class a task many find intimidating. But his compassionate mother told him he could do anything he wanted, including hopping on one leg to school two miles each day, playing soccer, and riding a bike. For example, you can pretend to be your child's best friend and tell her that the two of you should not be friends with her teddy bear because it doesn't look like us -- even though it is a nice teddy. Jubal values his childhood friendships with Sark and Liena, and the three share their skills.

    But one fateful day, Little Tree realizes he has been left behind by all the trees who have grown up around him, and he knows a critical decision is on the horizon. The plot is thrilling, courageous and perilous. Yvette Pottierthe camp prostitute, sings "The Song of Fraternization" to warn Kattrin about the horrors of a relationship with a soldier. The seventeenth year of the war finds the world in a bleak condition, with nothing to trade and nothing to eat.

    Teachers can teach courage in the classroom. The Chaplain discards his robes, and Swiss Cheese hides the regiment's paybox. If I was reading this book to a child, I would ask the child to come up with better examples, and the child probably could do it. But no- that would be much too logical.
