But the Aldens forgot all about being hungry. They couldn’t wait to show Miss Coffin their discoveries. “I just know she’ll be happy to see us when we show her these things,” Violet said. “Not like yesterday.” Henry ran ahead to call Mrs. Pease so they could eat lunch later and go to the museum instead. “She’s going to leave some
