The people of Solvei’s village have a yearly festival that marks the end of the growing season and the beginning of the dark time. In this joyful celebration, the villagers dress as dragons that represent the things they fear. Solvei is too young to attend, but is so excited that she sneaks a peek on the night of the festival — and comes home with many different fears from the “dragons” that she saw there. Her mother explains that she has taken on ‘someone else’s dragon’ and then helps Solvei give the fears back so she can fall peacefully asleep.

Martin and Sylvia get a book from the library about Yom Kippur, a very important Jewish festival day. Sylvia notices a page where a young boy is tossing a stone into a river. She learns that the boy had not told the truth, and so, as he tossed the stone into the water, he made it right with his family. Sylvia loves this idea. "Can we do this by our brook?" she asks, remembering an untruth she recently told. And so they do.
