The Westing Game Ellen Raskin
"Hoo" am I?
I chose a candy bar because Mr. Hoo has a few ulcers and like to gobble up his candy bars before it touches his ulcer.
I chose reservation book because Mr. Hoo owns a restaurant and would use a reservation book when someone makes a reservation.
I chose Paper Insoles because Mr. Hoo is an inventor and one the things he creates is a pair of paper insoles and most of the heirs thought they were amazing.
"Murder? Of course it means murder. Sam Westing was murdered," Mr. Hoo replied. "Either that or he ate once to often in that greasy-spoon coffee shop."
I chose this passage because it shows that Mr. Hoo doesn't like the coffee shop because it is competition for his restaurant. It also shows Mr. Hoo is certain that Sam Westing was murdered at this point.
I chose this passage because it shows that Mr. Hoo thinks his son is lazy because all he wants his son to do is study, but later on he appreciates his sons athletic ability. It also shows Mr. Hoo does not like his partner, but again he later appreciates her company and help, and learns they have a lot in common.
