  1. I think the mother and father want rat girl to marry the strongest husband because she wants somebody good for her and she went out looking for that strong husband and she found him and i know that rat girl wants to marry him too and i think the father wants a son in law and they want a strong man for her to take care of her. the author wants rat girl to have a strong husband because he wants a man that can take care of her in case of emergency.

  2. Why is the mom trying to find a strong rat boy to marry rat girl, because the mom thinks the rat girl will not take care of herself. The author is saying to marry some one who is tuff. I will take care of her.

  4. The author teach the girls and the boys to married a tough girls or boys so you can be protected.
    Because her parents wanted her to be protected in case something go wrong, her strong husband will be there. And her mother went out to find a different husband.

  7. The lesson the author is trying to say is that you should marry the strongest man so he can help out around the house and go out to get stuff, why the mom watch the baby while the father go get the milk and the baby food,and the juice and the dippers and the baby wipes and the bottles for the baby.

  11. I think that the author is telling us that you should think about who you are going to marry first. then you ask, like when , mama rat ask the sun , cloud ,wind ,wall, and she found the strongest is the one that rat girl wanted to marry. the only reason that they want the strongest is so he can help in the house.
