Eli is in Ms. Johnston's third grade class at Stowell Elementary in Hannibal, Missouri: I like OLIVER BUTTON IS A SISSY because I get called a sissy by my brother at home.

Tomie: I hope your brother stops calling you sissy. I didn't like it when my brother called me sissy.

Jarred: I like NANA UPSTAIRS & NANA DOWNSTAIRS because I lost all my grandparents too. It is sad losing your grandparents. I can't believe I have something in common with a 74 year old man.

Tomie: It gets worse. I'm actually 76 years old. You have something in common with a 76-year-old man!
