Chapter 3 questions

Don't forget to keep your character charts going so you don't get confused!  Don't read ahead of our weekly assignment please.  Answer one of these questions (once they have all been answered, then add onto someone's response) and leave your name after your comment!

1.  What is a hassock, and what page was it mentioned?  Who was on one?

2. What is a podiatrist, and who is one?

3. Describe Mrs. Wexler's relationship with her daughters.

4. How is JJ Ford connected to Mr. Westing?

5. What was in the package Sydelle Pulaski carried into her apartment?  Why do you think this is important?

6. What do you think of the book so far?? Any early predictions?


  1. Mrs Wexler thinks that Angela is this perfect little angel that can do no wrong and that Turtle is the letdown that holds everyone back.

  2. #1. A hassock is a thick cushion used as a footstool or for kneeling. It mentioned hassock on page 9. Angela Wexler was on a hassock.

  3. #1. The word "hassock" was mentioned on page 9. A hassock is a thick, soft padded cushion, and Angela Wexler was on the hassock.

  4. #6 I really like the book so far! And I think that Turtle might rebel against her mom and do something really bad!

  5. #6 I think the book is really interesting and suspenseful my prediction is that since Judge JJ Ford doesn't like Sam Westing so maybe she had something to do with Sam Westing.

  6. #2. A podiatrist is a doctor that works on your feet. They complete four years of training in a podiatric medical school and three years of hospital residency training. This training is similar to that of other doctors.

  7. #5 Sydelle Pulaski's package contained crutches, but she also had a shopping bag with six cans of enamel, paint thinner, and brushes. I think these are important because maybe she is tring to make herself noticed.
