“Oy, my hat!” cried Mr. Zinger. He reached up, but the wind had caught the hat and blown it high about the courtyard. Mr. Zinger patted his bald head.

“Young man!” he called. “Help me get my hat!”

After the excitement of the case, Leo and Mr. Zinger sit down on a bench to rest. Mr. Zinger reckons that a story is trying to escape from his hat, a story that he and Leo tell together.
