Based on “Sally Migrundy”

Written & Illustrated by Johnny Gruelle

1. Place parentheses ( ) around each prepositional phrase. 
2. Underline verbs twice, their subjects once, and label complements (PA, PN, IO, or DO).
3. Place brackets [ ] around each subordinate clause. Above the opening bracket, label the function of noun clauses. From clauses that function as adjectives or adverbs, draw an arrow from the opening bracket to the word that the clause modifies.
4. Place a vertical line after each main clause.
5. Label each interjection ("Inj"), each noun used as an adverb ("NuA"), and each example of direct address ("DirA").

1. But when they got inside they were surprised to find that the rooms were 

very large.

2. As you have probably guessed, the magic cottage took care to make 

everything comfortable for those who came inside.

3. And when Sally Migrundy had shown the children their pretty bed room she 

took them to the dining room and there they found a table which had everything

nice to eat upon it.

4. And because the bottle had been used by Sally Migrundy, the two good 

people suddenly knew all about Sally Migrundy, the magic little cottage, and 

the happy children who lived there.

5. And while the good couple have not been able to see the children or Sally 

Migrundy, or even the tiny magic cottage, they know they are all there.

6. And when they return to their home upon the hill they find they have received

enough happiness at the clearing beside the tinkling, singing water to last them

for a whole year.

7. So she wrote a happy-hearted note and asked whoever read it to come and

visit her.
