The first thing that happend was that Williams dad told William that they were going on a different vacation than they used to. They were going to a cottage, because his mother wanted something different and did not like the sand, and his dad did not like to walk far to get a nice fishing spot.
The first thing that happend when they got to the cottage was that WIlliam started to climb a tree in his best clothes but he also met a boy who was mean to him. When his mom and dad saw his ripped clothes the yelled at him and told him to go to his room. When he was up there Miss James came in and told him about some milk-bottle tops to make him happy.
Later that night the mean boys parents got angry at the mean boy.
