After reading these pages I have noticed that Molly McNamara isn’t an evil person after all. When I read the first two sections of the book I thought she was an evil woman. She was the one who sent Bud and Danny to go steal the only blue tongued voles left in the entire world form the Amazing Kingdom of Thrills. She caused a big worry for everybody at the amusement park at shot the two guys, Bud in the hand and Danny in the foot, for no reason I really thought she was just a horrible person, but after reading these pages I’ve noticed she had a reason to steal the voles. She is part of an organization named the Mothers of Wilderness, which is basically an organization against cruelty to animals. She stole the voles because she says that keeping them in a closed up place and not letting them live in the wild is cruel for the animals. Even if her intentions are good sometimes, I still believe she is a bad person. She keeps threatening Bud and Danny to keep them as her “slaves” for example she tells Bud and Danny that if they don’t do what she asks them to do she will turn them in to the authorities and get the reward from Francis X Kingsbury who is the owner of the Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, which is very mean to do since she is the one who send them to steal the voles in the first place. In these pages we have Joe Winder who is an employee at the Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, learns from his girlfriend Nina that a man pretending to be doctor Koocher, who is the vole doctor at the Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, called to meet at a bridge to talk about something.

My essay is about Vimy Ridge and how it affected Canada. Located in a northern region of France known as Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Vimy Ridge was the site where Canada won one of its greatest battles. The Vimy Ridge battle began on April 9th, 1917 and ended on April 12th, 1917.

I am writing to you to tell you about my experience in France. I was in the northern part of France, which is about 175 kilometers north of Paris. When the war started, Canada was still considered part of the British Empire. This meant that once Britain declared war, Canada was automatically at war. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been in France and to fight in the war. We thought that we would…
I believed that this war would be an easy war, and wouldn’t last long, but after what I have witnessed and saw with my bare eyes in the battle of Ypres, I was getting ready to accept my fate. There is very little hope of survival in this war. We arrived in Somme, France on the 16th of September, as it was probably the bloodiest and deadliest of all the battles. When we arrived we were walking on dead soldiers ... I saw poor fellows trying to bandage their wounds, bombs, and heavy shells were falling…

In the battles of Ypres, the Canadian soldiers showed their bravery by not backing out by the new weapon that the Germans used, the Chlorine Gas, whereas all the other troops backed out. Canadian soldiers still fought even though the gas was very dangerous. They used many tactics to fight this new weapon. The Canadian military surely…
the battle of
Vimy Ridge against Germany. The battle was fought in 1917 and lasted three days. Vimy Ridge
was difficult to attack because of its great advantages, such as, it was located on a hill which
allowed the Germans to see over into the allied trenches as well as firing their guns at a greater
distance. It was also very difficult for Canadians to attack uphill because of the rough terrain.
Before the battle, Canadian’s prepared by making a huge model of the ridge to instruct…
