By Brock Hall
Book by Lois Lowry
The ways this funeral at Uncle Henrik’s is different from other funerals is that there are coats in the casket, the casket is not open, and no one is talking about the good times they had with Great-aunt Birte.
The surprise Ellen receives during the funeral of Great-Aunt Birte is the arrival of Ellen’s parents and the arrival of Peter. Ellen is rejoiced to finally see her parents again.
To keep the soldier from opening the casket, Mama says that Great-aunt Birte died of typhoid fever, an infectious disease.
