Mr. Brown and Mr. Black

Character Analysis

Mr. Brown plays a jumping game with the pup and is launched “out of town” (43.1-2) Based on the bewildered look on his face, this flight was both unexpected and not entirely welcomed. But Mr. Brown makes the most of it. When he returns, he brings his new friend with him, Mr. Black, and the three have a snack (47.1-2).

Fun-sized consideration: unexpected things are going to happen. Make the most of them.
