The Know-Nothings Series

“I don’t have a French hat,” said Boris. “What can I wear? I want to look French.”

Doris gave him a bottle.

“A bottle is not French,” said Boris.

“Read the label,” said Norris.

“It says ‘French dressing,’” said Boris.

Boris put the bottle on his head. “I feel so French now,” he said.

Norris wanted to look French, too. Doris gave him two pieces of bread.

“This is not French!” cried Norris.

“Of course it is,” said Doris. “Everyone know about French toast.”

“Thank you, Doris. You are so clever.” Norris put the toast on his head.
