All his worries go away.He felt good and ran all the way home,and that gave him an idea for his contest.
7: If I added a new character it would be Leigh's neighbor.A girl named Hannah with red hair and lots of freckles.Her and her mom Sherry would take Leigh to school. And Leigh would tell Hannah all about the butterfly forest, and they would spend all day there.She would just be a friend to be with him and support him.
