We wonder if they don't succeed at first, and try to make it again, then they will think about it more and succeed. We think that two people will put their minds together to make something. After reading the we think the theme of the book is teamwork and thinking outside the box!

In Illinois we think the theme is....

Charles: you don't have to have the same thing that everyone else has. If everyone had the same things it would be boring. I think the boy was jealous he didn't have anything cool like the characters had. He made fun of it because he was jealous.

Abraham: Sometimes being different is a good thing.

Rikki: Just because something is different doesn't mean everyone has to make fun of it.

Marie: No one should be a bully because they think differently.

Derrick: The characters teamed up and put their heads together.

Morgan: Think outside the box. Think of your own things in your own way.

William: It is okay to be creative and not follow directions. I almost never follow the directions in my legos.
