Comments for Goggles
Goggles by Ezra Jack Keats is the fifth of the Peter books. Here the boy has found a neat pair of goggles and doesn't want to lose them to the local bullies!
I don't know about you, but when I was Peter's age (and maybe you are Peter's age), when I found something and I knew it was a legit case of finder's keepers, that thing was treasure and more importantly, it was my treasure. If the bully up the street (and there was one in my neighborhood) wanted it too, I'd have to fight to keep my treasure. Peter is a craftier and less violent kid than I was at his age. Peter is the kind of kid I should have striven to be.
Googles! also now makes me think of the "Double Vision" episode of Generator Rex where Rex's special (sentimental) pair of goggles are stolen by a girl in goggles. Except that Rex doesn't manage to outsmart her like Pete does his bully.
