Sam’s onion remedy
The history of Sam and his onion remedies explains events that occur in the present day. Stanley and Zero avoid being bitten by the deadly yellow-spotted lizards because they have been eating nothing but onions for more than a week. This fact makes the lizards, which appear to be a menace, into a help for Stanley and Hector, successfully keeping the Warden away from them until Stanley's lawyer arrives to help them.

Stanley's father invented his cure for foot odor the day after the great-great-grandson of Elya Yelnats carried the great-great-great-grandson of Madame Zeroni up the mountain. Camp Green Lake was closed and the Warden, Ms. Walker, was forced to sell her family's land. The camp will soon be a Girl Scout camp. The suitcase contained some jewels and many valuable deeds and stocks. Stanley and Hector each received almost a million dollars from these finds. Stanley buys his family a house and Hector hires a private investigator to find his mother.


Stanley and Hector watch a commercial in which Clyde Livingston advertises sploosh, Stanley's father's cure for foot odor. Clyde Livingston is at Stanley's house in person, watching the commercial as well. Hector sits with a woman who looks just like him. She sings him the same song that Madame Zeroni taught Elya Yelnats.

Fate is shown to be a powerful force.
Interesting words:)
I like your comment ;"Fate is shown to be a powerful force."
The real life that I am in China with my husband and daughter is also made by the fate which I didn't expect. Interesting and scary, isn't it?!
Life is fun because nobody knows how it goes:)
