There was an attempted abduction from the school down the road the other day. Since then, police have issued a description of a guy who has been hanging around our school and other local schools lately. The kids have been told about the situation and have all had the stranger-danger talk.
Joel and his friends have been keeping theirs eyes open (in an alert-but-not-alarmed kind of a way) for people matching the description. They saw these guys at the school fete and wondered if either is the culprit. They are looking for a tall, African-American man who wears lots of gold jewelry. I like how Joel has identified the accessories these men were wearing - the man on the left has a shark tooth ('sark') tooth necklace and the man on the right, a gold necklace, a gold ring and gold on his thongs. I also like the unit of measurement Joel has used. The desk! The man on the right may look shorter, but he's actually three and a half desks high, compared to the man on the left who is only three desks high.
