Kenny gets tired of being bullied by a kid named Larry Dunn. That’s when Rufus comes in. Kenny at first sees him as his personal savior sent by God. A friendship is developed as the story progresses.

Joey begged Mrs. Watson not to burn him, but Mrs. Watson was a square peg and Joey was a round hole.
Byron was completely frozen with fear, literally!
Mrs. Watson lit the match, put it closer and closer to Byron’s fingers. Then…………………….
WHOOSH! Joey blew the match out.
Mrs. Watson lit another one, WHOOSH!
This happened over and over until Mrs. Watson decided to stop.
Byron was LUCKY!! This time…..

The brown bomber looked great! Not almost new, but not almost fifteen years old either.
And now the thing that makes this car more perfect…
Dad started helping Joey cut up. He said, The final touch.
Joey repeated, the final touch!
Joey pulled her hand out of the bag and said, it’s a smelly green pine tree!
Ladies and gentlemen, the newest addition to the Brown Bomber! Our very own drive-around record player!

And then the most beautiful notes of music I’d ever heard came from the front of the car and the back of the car at the same time.

SIGNED JOE COLLIER

When I went to the church people were crying I saw a shoe that looked like Joeys so I pulled it but it would not move when I looked up I saw the wool pooh on the other side pulling the little girl

“I know it was Sunday because I heard Joetta getting ready for Sunday School.”
“She did look kind of pretty too, she had on lacy white hat and little lacy socks and shiny, shiny black shoes.”
“She had on a fluffy white skirt, a regular blouse and the little white gloves Grandma Sands had made her.”
“It seemed like every animal and bird and bug in Birmingham stopped making noise for about two seconds . It seemed like everything that was alive stopped whatever it was doing and was wondering the same thing: What was that noise?”
“ By! What happened?” He got the pants up and said, “A guy just came by and said somebody dropped a bomb on Joeys church.”
“I could see people everywhere making their mouths go like they were screaming and pointing and yelling but I didn’t hear anything.”
“I saw Momma and Dad and Byron holding on to each other, all three of them looking like they were crazy and trying to keep each other away from the pile of rocks that used to be the front of the church.”
“Grandma Sands said What are all them sirens doing? Lord has the whole world gone mad today? Where's your momma and daddy?”
The World-Famous Watson Pet Hospital
By: Emily Beth Blakeley
If one of our dogs got hit by a car and could walk away or if one of them chewed through an electric wire or ran away from home and showed up a couple of weeks later half-starved or something they’d head right for the back of the couch.
The only trouble was that the magic powers seemed to be taking a real long time to decide what was going to happen to me. Maybe I wasn’t spending enough time back there.
He grabbed my ear and twisted my head until I had to look at him. “You think I don’t know you waiting for some stupid magic powers or genies or an angel to make you feel better? Dig this: you can wait behind that couch for the rest of your life and ain’t no magic powers gonna come back there and make you feel nothing.
He walked over to the mirror scrunched his face up so he could look at his chin again, then used his thumb and finger to pull that long, skinny hair out a little bit. He let the hair go, smiled at himself and ran his hands along his head like he was brushing his hair.

Dear 2013/14 T.A.G. Class,
You guys are very lucky to have Ms. Cagle as a teacher! We all agreed that The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963 is a wonderful book. This slideshow (along with the book), is dedicated to the four little girls’ lives that have been taken by the Birmingham Church Bombing:
