Were you surprised by the ending of the story?  It was a mirale that Barry was reunited with his family!

Do you think that Barry’s father made the right decision by going back home?  Should they have tried to leave the city?


Why do you think Barry’s grandfather left an ax in the attic?  What do you think it is for?
