About this book
1. Choose a character from the book and draw a picture of this person. What is he or she wearing and doing? Is this character happy or sad? Compare your drawing to a friend's drawing. How are your pictures similar? How are they different?
2. At the end of the story, Ella reads a letter from Jed. Imagine you are Ella. Write a letter back to Jed letting him know how things are going at the camp and what your plans are for the future. Are you still thinking about becoming a doctor? Do you have any questions about people back at the castle?
