Tony, the Human Wasp

Tony set off for home again without having eaten. As usual, one of the older boys had taken his packed lunch, threatening to give him a good hiding. On his way, Tony stopped at the park and sat on a bench, trying to control his anger. As he was a sensitive and intelligent boy, before long he had managed to forget it, and was busy enjoying the plants and the flowers. He suddenly saw a wasp flying about among the rosebushes, and it gave him a bit of a fright.

While getting away from the roses, a thought came into his head. How is it that something so much smaller than himself could frighten him like that?

That was just what he needed to do himself, against the older boys!

He spent awhile looking at the insects, and by the time he arrived home he had a good understanding of the wasp’s trick; it was fear. A wasp could never fight a person, but everyone was so afraid of its sting that they left the wasp in peace. So Tony spent that night wondering what his ‘sting’ could be. He tried to think of what frightened those bigger boys.

The next day, Tony seemed like a new boy. No longer did he walk with his gaze on the ground, nor did he look away when people spoke to him. He was confident, ready to face up to anyone, with his mind on his new role of frightening people, and on his back he carried a backpack full of ‘stings’.

The boy who stole his packed lunch that day ate an extremely hot sausage sandwich. The sausage was so spicy that he ended up crying and coughing. Never again did he want to eat anything belonging to Tony. Another older boy wanted to hit Tony, but this time Tony didn’t run away. From memory, he told him the phone numbers of his parents, his teacher, and the boy’s own mother,

“If you hit me they’ll all find out, and you’ll be severely punished,”

Tony told him, looking at the boy so determinedly and bravely that the boy left him alone. Another bully wanted to take one of Tony’s toys. Instead of giving him it in fear, Tony gave the boy a small card written by a policeman he knew. It read

-“If you rob this boy I’ll come after you and I’ll even lock you up.”

The tactic worked.

Just like Tony had been afraid of their beatings, those big kids too were afraid of many things. On one occasion, a bully hit him a couple of times, and Tony had to be brave and carry out his warning. The bully got such a fright that from that day he preferred to protect Tony.

So, in the end, Tony became like the wasp he’d seen. Without even having to sting anyone, he frightened them, and ensured that no one would mess with him.….0…1.1.64.psy-ab..2.3.685…0i67k1.0.v2VuVaNrQ8M#imgrc=wvlpLVS5jsdwqM:

eat spinach and liver,

pet ten porcupines,

than tackle the homework,

my teacher assigns.

    TASK 3:




    Danny and Susie were walking to school, when Susie noticed something under the bushes.

    “What is that?” Susie asked, as she pointed to the bush.

    “Hmmm, I’m not sure.” Danny reached down to grab it. It was a book, and it looked old. The title was Buried

    Treasure. He started looking through the book. It was full of different maps that were supposed to lead to buried treasure. “Wow, this book looks great!”

    Susie said, “I want to look too, but we’d better get to school before we’re late.” Danny and Susie anxiously awaited recess, when they would have time to get a better look at the book.

    Their friend Fred joined them on the benches at recess time. Susie sat in the middle, holding the book, and turning the pages. Each treasure map had an explanation for where it was found, and what the treasure was supposed to be. The stories were exciting, and Susie, Danny, and Fred let their minds run wild. They wished there was a treasure map in their town for them to explore. What a fun adventure that would be!

    They were getting toward the end of the book when a slip of paper fell out.

    “Wow, this book must be really old, it’s falling apart!” Fred said.

    Danny opened the paper. It had the name of their town on top, and it was a map of their town! There was a marking on the map. The friends looked closer. It looked like the markings on the other maps in the book, and that meant one thing: treasure! The end of the school day couldn’t come fast enough – they wanted to go on their own adventure!

    After school, the friends met at Danny’s house. They had talked to their parents and looked at the treasure map with them, and Danny’s parents had agreed to drive them around to try to find the treasure. The friends piled in the car.

    “Where to?” Danny’s dad asked. Susie looked at the map. The trail started at the pool in the middle of town, so Susie told that to Danny’s dad. Susie gave the map to Fred to take a turn giving directions. He directed them to turn left by the pool, and head towards the library, then handed the map to Danny. Danny looked at the map, and saw that they were almost there! They turned right by the grocery store, and stopped at the park.

    “What do you think the treasure is?” asked Fred.

    “I don’t know, but I hope it’s good!” said Danny.

    When Danny’s dad parked, the friends got out of the car. Now was the hard part, where in the park was the treasure? They started looking around for clues. Finally, Susie yelled out to Danny and Fred, and they came running over.

    “I found it! At first I didn’t think it was the treasure, because it’s not

    something we can pick up and take with us, but, when you read it, you’ll

    see!” Susie said. She pointed to the tree they were wall standing by. On the

    trunk, someone had carved a message. It said, “The best treasure is a

    good adventure with good friends!” There were other names carved into the


    “Wow, that’s true. It was so fun going on a treasure hunt with you both. Let’s sign our names!” The friends carved their names, and Danny’s dad took a picture of them all with the tree. Even though they didn’t get to keep anything, they agreed that it was a great day.

    Answer each question:

    1. Describe Susie’s character. What evidence from the text helps you describe her?
    2.  What does “anxiously awaited” mean in the 4th paragraph? How do you know?
    3.  Write your own ending to the story, changing what the treasure was.

    • Treasure hunt
