    I think The Stranger is father summer because when he was around it was always warm and he kept it summer for an extra week every year but when he left it immedeatly turned to fall. Also i believe this beacause when he blew on his soup and i got cold that was beacause summer always has that cool wind or breeze if you want.

      Adam this is a good argument, but to me it seems that as Jack Frost leaves he is changing the climate.

      I don’t agree with you because why would there be a white rabbit come to him

    I believe the stranger in The Stranger is father summer because in the text, he was at the Baileys farm, and in that area the trees were green, but down in the field the trees were orange and red, and when he left, the trees in that area went to red/orange, and the air was cool. I also think he is father summer because he would not sweat because he is used to his own weather.

      Mr. Purdon responded:
      October 26, 2012 at 10:06 am

      Okay Thomas, but what about the fact that the rabbits were white? This seems to say Jack Frost. Also, what about the writing on the window in the “frost”????

        Kraft Dinner said:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:10 am

        Im going to be commenting right now defending Thomas. The rabbits were white but the rabbits wanted him to follow maybe sending Father Summer a message trying to lead him away telling him “your time is up hand the reins over to fall” So thus proving he must be Father Summer

        Mr. Purdon responded:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:12 am

        But why were they white?

        Mr. Purdon responded:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:13 am

        Also, how can Father Summer break a thermometer?

        Kraft Dinner said:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:13 am

        They could have been saying that he was not making it warm enough to make them stay or even turn brown.

        Mr. Purdon responded:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:14 am

        Why did him blowing on the soup cause a draft if he wasn’t Jack Frost?

        Kraft Dinner said:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:15 am

        He broke the thermometer beacause he is father summer he has one tempature that is really really hot so maybe he broke the thermometer by being so hot that the meter cant measure it!

        Mr. Purdon responded:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:16 am

        What about the cool Breeze he causes when he breathes on the soup and turning the leaf orange?

        Kraft Dinner said:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:16 am

        IT CAUSED A DRAFT BEACAUSE THATS SUMMERS COOL WIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Mr. Purdon responded:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:17 am

        Cold wind from summer?? Really? Is that the best you can do?

        Kraft Dinner said:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:20 am

        Well its the most logical answer possible and the one that makes most sense!!

        Thomas said:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:24 am

        The rabbits were white because they wanted to show that his time is up and autumn is here.

        Mr. Purdon responded:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:25 am

        Rabbits change with the season!!! When it gets cold after Jack Frost’s arrival!

        Kraft Dinner said:
        October 26, 2012 at 10:28 am

        Well, that is why the rabbits are trying to make him follow and there trying to tell him that he’s there to long and he has to go beacause Jack Frost is supposed to go then.

      Lewis said:
      October 26, 2012 at 10:23 am

      no he had no problem with the weather because jack frost is made of snow so it kept him cool.

    I think the stranger is father nature because in the text it said that when he picked up a rabbit it was white instead of brown. Also in the book it said that the trees around the Baileys farm were green but every wear else it was orange, red and yellow. Also when he picked up the leaf and blew on it turned red, so that proves he is not Jack Frost or father summer, because he could keep it as warm as summer and turn it as cold as winter.

      Shaynah said:
      October 26, 2012 at 10:17 am

      But It could still be Jack frost, because Jack frost has to blow on things to make them winter. The stranger didn’t blow on the leaves. Later in the book he did, and that’s when the leaf turned red.

    The Stranger I thing the stranger is Father Nature because in the begging there were birds watching him and also when the rabbits jump in his hand no wild rabbit had ever jump in a hand before. When I go hunting wild rabbits, they always run away or hide in there rabbit holes. This is why I think he father nature.

    I think the stranger is jack frost because when the strander blow on the soup Ms. baly said there is a draft tonight, and when we was working with Ms. baly she was swating but the stranger he was not swating. And when we pick up a leaf he shange the colour the trees wer green but leaf was orange.

      Andrew said:
      October 26, 2012 at 10:15 am

      But what about the green trees.

      donte said:

      what about the warm air

    I think the stranger is Jack Frost because he was probably just floating around doing his thing and then he got hit by the truck. Mr. Bailey did not see him before he hit him. When he got hit he tried to run away. Later in the book he climbed the tallest hill on the baileys farm and noticed that in the north the trees were all red and orange. But when he looked around the farm all of the leafs were green. Then he picked a leaf off of a tree and it turned orange.

    I think the stranger is father nature because he blow on the soup and a draft came in and it felt lake summer at the farm so father nature can make it hot and cold.

    The book The Stranger is about a man who lost his memory and he can’t remember anything and the reason why I think he is Father Nature because the rabbits were white, not brown. When he blowed on the soup like Katty did but when the stranger blowed a draft came. Also when he blowed on a leaf with all his might it turned orange and plus it stayed summer but it was supposed to turn fall and the leafs around were green but far away it was orange.

      Mr. Purdon responded:
      October 26, 2012 at 10:11 am

      Blew not blowed Ethan!!!

    I think the stranger is Jack frost. I think this because in the book, the stranger always made it cold when he was around. And when the farmer hit the stranger, he didn’t see him. So maybe the stranger was the chilly wind at first, and when he got hit by the car, he tranformed into a human.
    But here are some examples why I think the stranger is Jack frost. When Mr. Baily (The farmer) went out to work, the stranger followed him. And when Mr. Baily sat down to take a break, the stranger was still working. And he didn’t even sweat! And maybe the stranger didn’t sweat because he was always cool. And when the Baily family got a doctor to check on the stranger, the thermometre thing was stuck at the bottom of the thermometre. And that means that the stranger was cold. Here is one last example. Mr. Baily’s daughter, Katie, was blowing on her soup to cool it down, and the stranger did the same. When he did that, the room suddenly became very cold.

      Mr. Purdon responded:
      October 26, 2012 at 10:12 am

      Well thought out and defended Shaynah.

    I think that The stranger is Father Nature because he is almost like Mother Nature she can control the seasones.If he was jack frost he would make it winter but it was fall then. But when he blew on the soup it went cold and Mrs.Bailey got cold because there was a draft.

    The stranger didn’t even sweat so he could be Father Nature and when he blew on the leaf it went orange so Ithink he is father nature!

    I think the stranger in the book is jack frost because in the text it said that when he blow on the soup mrs.bailey felt a clod breeze. Mr bailey and the stranger went to the barn, but the stranger didn’t sweat when they were working. the stanger went outside and then a white rabbit came up to the stanger im the middale of fall. why was the rabbit white?

    Lewis said:

    I think the stranger is jack frost because in the text when the stranger blew on Mrs.baileys soup she got cold, also in the text when the stranger got hit it must of knocked off all of the snow then he turned to human and some how the stranger wrote, “See you next year.” with frost.

    I think the stranger is father nature because he controls seasons so he mix all the season together so the leaves could be green, the bunnies white, the air warm, and write on the window with frost. When he blew he made a draft but since it was fall it was the north winds blowing. But if it was Jack Frost the leaves would still be orange and red. But he thought that the green trees look ugly and nature is picky about everything looking the same.

    I think the stranger is jack frost because in the text when he blewed the soup mrs. bailey felt a breeze thats why I think he is jack frost and then when they wen’t to the barn he didn’t sweat and then katy saw the stranger with two bunnys they we’re white.

    I think the stranger is father nature because he picked up wild bunnies and they were white and didn’t bite him. Also he blew on his soup and Mrs. Bailey said “There’s a draft here tonight”. The whether was very warm and the pumpkins grew larger. He knew something was wrong and he ran to a tree and pulled it off then it turned orange. He also climbed the tallest hill on the farm. Mr. bailey was sweating but the stranger didn’t.

    I think the stranger is father nature because in the text it said that when he blew on the leaf it instantaneously turned orange. Also when he blew on the soup it sent a draft through the room. When he stayed at the farm the trees didn’t turn red/orange, they stayed green. In the text it said on the window it said in frost “see you next year”.
