Passage from Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax:
Is this a problem or a solution?
He snapped, “I’m the Lorax who speaks for the trees
which you seem to be chopping as fast as you please.
But I’m also in charge of the Brown Bar-ba-loots
who played in the shade in their Bar-ba-loots suits
and happily lived, eating Truffula Fruits.
“Now . . . thanks to your hacking my trees to the ground,
there’s not enough Truffula Fruit to go ’round.
And my poor Bar-ba-loots are all getting the crummies
because they have gas, and no food, in their tummies!
From Six by Seuss: A Treasury of Dr. Seuss Classics (Random House, 1991), p. 319

What we noticed about the writing of the problem and solution in this story:
Robert's guess was too amazing. Everyone else guessed a round number, and Robert's was the only not rounded off number.
Cam said to Robert
that he wrote his
exact guess after Mrs.
Bell told the number
and revealed clues.

Reasons for the Problem
Cell phones don't work well in the school.
A tornado had hit the school and we were locked in with automatic locks.
My friend and I!
We could signal with mirrors out of the window in the moonlight!
At school at midnight!
We had no food and the phones were dead.
There was no electricity.
