Lynn's Comments: This is a real problem. After living and working with a dentist, I could tell from a child's dentition if he or she had been sucking their thumb for too long. I knew about these appliances to stop the habit...they were unpleasant, but they worked!

Lynn's Comments: This thumb sucking appliance is a small metal wire contraption that is glued into a child's mouth. This tiny appliance has tiny prongs on it which makes sucking uncomfortable and (hopefully) breaks the habit. Too bad there isn't something similar for smoking!

Lynn's Comments: This is where I used alliteration as a punch line. When writing a short story, I had to produce some daily "wit" even if there was nothing to hang it on. "I think they're all creepth!!"—"I think they’re all curious." I tied up the 4 panels as best I could with these almost rhyming comments.

Lynn's Comments: This was a segue into the introduction of the teacher in a wheelchair. I had wanted to show someone in a chair for a while, but didn’t know how or when to do it. Strange, since we all know someone who is disabled. Miss Edwards became a favourite character, but again, I had little space in which to feature one of Elizabeth's teachers.

Lynn's Comments: It drove me crazy when my dad stirred his coffee like this. He also sipped with audible slurps—unaware of how awful it sounded. Dad has been gone for long time, now. I wish I could hear him stir his coffee again.

Lynn's Comments: I clearly remember sucking my thumb. I think I did this until I was in grade one. I remember the feel and the taste and the comfort. The good thing about thumbs (I thought at the time) is that they are permanently attached and always available.
