  • Trivia

    • The whole reason Miss Beadle is involved in the carriage accident and sprains her ankle is because one of the male students pulls out a snake and chases the other children around the schoolhouse with it, and the noise spooks the horses. When Laura ran past the horses, screaming at the top of her lungs, that's what finally triggers the accident. Since when has rough-and-tumble tomboy Laura been that terrified over a snake??? This wasn't a matter of Laura being a little shocked and scared--she was absolutely screaming bloody murder, and that doesn't match up with her character at all. It would have made more sense if Mary or Nellie had reacted that way, not fearless Laura.
