The next day, Larry was off to school, packed snug and safe in Sally’s lunch box. During recess, he made lots of new friends; Yasmin Yoghurt, Adam Apple Core, Ali Alfoil and Corey Cling Wrap.
When the recess bell sounded, his new friends were picked up and placed into the bin. He waited for Sally to do the same with him: he was looking forward to spending time with his new friends.
He waited and waited, but didn’t move. Sally left him on the bench, all by himself, and went back to her classroom. Surely she would return at lunchtime, pick him up and place him in the bin.
