    Avi made a satisfying ending. How Avi did it is because it ended at the part when Poppy and Rye got engaged and had a TON of kids. It also was satisfying because she reminded everyone about Ragweed and hung up his earring on the hazelnut tree that he had dropped a seed into. This ending made me feel really happy sad. It made me happy because of course the whole mouse family had a good life and so was Poppy and Rye, but I got sad because I felt like Poppy was sort of replacing Ragweed and got married with Rye. I also felt a little sad that the book was coming to a end. It is a good ending, but also can get you a little emotional.

    I think Avi made a satisfying because of many reasons. For example he made a satisfying end because of the many fights and actions that he made. It was also happy and also sad, I really want to do that because it is hard for someone to make another person opposite feelings at once. It is also nice to see that Poppy got over Ragweed. And married someone else, instead of being sad for the rest of your life.

    The ending makes me fell sad because we finished the book. To me the last chapter was not really special because it did not make me interested. It made me feel sad because I liked reading poppy. Also the only thing that inspired me in the last chapter is how poppy thought the tree was made by ragweed

    The last chapter of Poppy, is a good but unique chapter. Avi uses a weird ending where Poppy gives a big long speech about Ragweed. It’s not really going back to the beginning of the story or a summery of the story, it is a ending of telling her children about her friend, Ragweed. Whats weird is that you have to read Poppy and Rye to really understand the ending.

    Avi makes a satisfying ending by telling you what happens after Poppy starts a family with rye and is on top of bannock hill and puts ragweed’s earring on top of the hazelnut tree where was once forbidden to mice unless asked for permission. It is satisfying that finally after one brave deer mouse fought for her life, she gets to see her reword. The ending makes me feel happy and sad at the same time. It makes me feel this way because again Poppy fought for her life to be in freedom and she gets to have a beautiful view just like with Ragweed.My last reason is that this time, instead of Ragweed with Poppy with her, it Rye is with her so she will be happy and sad. Happy because with Rye and nothing to worry about and sad she remembers the times with Ragweed.

    Avi created a satifying ending for the story by Poppy having a funral for Ragweed and her with another mouse she loves, Rye. Even though she was in love with Ragweed she still married Rye. Avi also left the story with Poppy doing what she loved: dance. This makes me feel unsatifide because I don’t think it was fair for Ragweed to die because he was going to ask her to marrie him. But at the same time it makes me feel happy because she needs to keep the family going, plus she loved Rye enogh to let go of Ragweed and move on.

    Avi creates a satisfying ending because he adds information from the future. Also Avi adds that they live in Dimwood forrest and that they are aloud on Bannak Hill. The ending makes me feel all warm inside.The ending makes me feel all warm inside because it meant that they are now free little deer mice. Also it makes me feel warm because Poppy married and had children and the children didn’t have to struggle with Mr.Ocax.

    In the last chapter,”A New Beginning,” Avi created a satisfying finish to the book by making a full circle ending. A full circle ending is where the end of a book references back to the beginning of the book. The ending made me feel happy and sad. I am proud of Poppy because she survived the attacks of Mr.Ocax, killed him, saved the other mice, and became the hero of the story. The ending also made me sad because it reminded me of when Mr.Ocax ate and killed Ragweed.

    How Avi does it is he used interesting dialogue to get readers to have a feeling about what the theme of the book is about. The ending makes me feel hooked in and don’t want the story to end because I love the book Poppy. Another reason I feel this way is that I love the way Avi ends the story by a New Beginning because it is like he’s starting a new book. A third reason why I feel this way is that the ending makes readers feel hopeful because Poppy talked about the growing tree and the memory of Ragweed. My last reason why I feel this way is that the ending stays with the reader long after you finish the book. In conclusion, this is why I feel hooked in to the story.

    Avi tells a story of Poppy family, including his wife and 11 kids. Avi also tells where Poppy put Ragweed’s earring which is on the hazel nut tree for remembering a good friend. The story ends in a new life for Poppy with a wife and children and also making memories with his new family. They ending makes me feel happy because Poppy has a new and wonderful family. They ending also make me feel protected because Ereth will protect Poppy and times he needs very good backup. In conclusion this was a very good book of adventures, memories, family, risk, and I hope to read Poppy and all the other books.

    I feel that when it says Poppy, and her husband Rye ( how the met, and married is a different story) it makes me feel what is going to happen next? That last 2 pages makes me want to read the next story. It makes me feel that way because I want to know how they got married! I also want to know what happens to Ereth because it says old Ereth murmered. I want to know if Ereth is going to be alive at the last book. Because the 4th book is Ereth’s Birthday. So I want to know what will happen?

  • Ashley December 16, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    Avi created a very satisfying ending because it sets you up for the next book Poppy And Rye. The ending makes me feel like I have empathy for Poppy. It makes me feel this way because I have told my younger cousins very important stuff just like Poppy. I thought this was a fascinating way Avi ended this book.

  • Juan December 16, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    Avi made it satisfying by saying that Poppy made it home safely and Mr.Ocax didn’t kill her (he’s dead). Another thing that was satisfying is Mr.Ocax died and does not rule the mice anymore. The last thing that was satisfying was that Poppy’s family didn’t have to get separated. The ending makes me feel happy because Poppy made it home safely and well. I also read that she got married to a mouse named Rye and they had babies.

  • Elan December 16, 2014 at 9:23 pm

    The ending makes me feel happy and sad. It does this because it reminds me of Ragweed and it remindes me of Poppy defeating Mr.Ocax. Avi created a satisfying ending by doing a “Happily Ever After’ type of thing. It also satisfied readers because Ereth and Poppy became friends. That is how I believe that Avi created a satisfying ending for readers.

    The satisfying ending that Avi creates for us is by cheering us up from Ragweed’s death. He does this by writing that Poppy marries another mouse named Rye, making us think that Poppy will not feel too sad about Ragweed’s death since she is married with another mouse and because she married Rye, Poppy will not feel too much despair either, since she was planning to marry Ragweed. This ending makes me feel very cheerful because when Ragweed died, I thought that Poppy was not going to marry another mouse, but in the ending, she does. I also feel cheerful because that the mice didn’t just forget about Ragweed; they hung his earring on the tree that he accidentally planted by dropping the seed nut and the mice (technically only Poppy, Rye, and the the littler of 11 mice) classified that spot as the dancing spot. To conclude, Avi writes a satisfying ending for us by cheering us up from Ragweed’s death, and that ending makes me feel cheerful.

    Avi creates a satisfying ending because he gives a lot of details. Avi does not say; “Poppy and Rye got married near a tree. The End.” The ending makes me feel satisfied but also, I want more because he keeps the reader intrigued by the amount of details he puts in the chapter. It also makes the reader want to read the next book.(If there is one.) I also feel sad that the book is over because we have so many questions that the author can not leave you hanging.
