The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

by Mark Haddon

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Chapter 173 Summary

  • He writes about how silly constellations are, because people just make up pictures by pretending the stars are connected. If you think about it, Orion could be made to look like a dinosaur or a coffee maker or a lady with an umbrella.
  • Or the Shmoop logo?
