"Oh, all right," Harriet said. She gave Walter a teensy-weensy piece of coconut candy. Nancy Carlson
Harriet packed her candy in a big box and hid it in her closet. Nancy Carlson
Pretty soon, Harriet ran out of places to hide her candy. Nancy Carlson
So she decided to eat it all up. Nancy Carlson
"I don't feel so good," Harriet said. "Maybe it's time to share." Nancy Carlson
"I was going to share the whole time," Harriet told her mom. Nancy Carlson
"That's good, Harriet," her mom said. "Now go wash up for dinner." Nancy Carlson
