    I wonder what that girl’s box originally held before it became a diorama. (“Also-rans”?)

    Probably boots. Steel-toed, leather, work boots with heavy-duty soles weigh a ton and come in very large boxes.

    Bigger doesn’t always mean better.

    And the influence of Tacoma’s own Ivan lives on.

    The One and Only Ivan is a wonderful book. It truly deserves the most fabulous diorama!

    When I was in school, dioramas were always done in shoe boxes, like Dean’s and Heart’s are.

    But is this for art class or for english class, and how much emphasis does the teacher place on the level of reading involved? In junior high many decades ago we were to do watercolors based on the combination of a play or movie with a piece of music. It seemed natural to combine Mendleson and Shakespeare. I was familiar with the Mendleson piece only because my mother owned a copy. That made me golden in that teacher’s eyes for quite a while afterward because it was so unexpected, and I guess not many classmates enjoyed reading Shakespeare the way that did.

    I was almost afraid to comment on this arc, because I have no idea what any of this is about. I don’t even understand what a diorama is.

    We had a coffin-sized radio hauled into the classroom where we’d listen to some cultural program and then draw a picture based on what we’d heard. I remember drawing Peer Gynt’s “Hall of the Mountain King,” Swift’s “Visit to Brobdingnag” and something to do with the Sargasso Sea…
