Rachel has chosen a special gift for her father’s birthday and wants it to be a surprise. In her excitement she tells every creature, object, and person she encounters in the next 24 hours-a bug, a frog, a pet rabbit, a doll, her baby brother, the mailman, her grandmother, a moth, and a rooster-and swears them to silence. A little suspense and mystery are built up because the text does not reveal what the gift is until Rachel’s father actually opens it.
