"WHAT DO YOU MEAN I HAVE BUGS IN MY HAIR?!" blurts Ellie when her mother and the school nurse give her the bad news: Ellie has head lice. "These things happen," says Ellie's mother. At home, Ellie and her mother talk to the doctor and read the papers from the school nurse. Then they shampoo, comb, and do laundry. Ellie even writes a note for kids who get head lice-"These things happen," it says.
