    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Josie said it took her an hour and a half to get up the steps to Josie and Corrine's room. Yet the hallway in which Josie shrunk is on the same floor as their room. Why would Josie climb the steps?

      • Before Josie climbs up onto the desk in her and Corrine's room, Corrine's earphones wire is on Corrine's left. In the next scene, it switches to Corrine's right, and after that it switches back to her left. It does this about 4 or 5 times before finally remaining on the left side.

        This week, Josie literally learns what "to feel very small" means. Annoyed by her small stature, she learns facts about puberty hormones and growth patterns, and then tries an experiment. But instead of growing, she shrinks approximately to four inches tall! What a catastrophe that could become! The Janitor suggests how to benefit from this inconvenience and turn it to her advantage. Will her plan be successful? When and how will she return to her normal size?

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Lucas is heard referring to Gulliver's Travels in the bookcase while looking for Josie.

        "Gulliver's Travels" is a story in which the character ventures to an island where the inhabitants are really tiny and to another island where the inhabitants are very tall.
