Description Together we will read “The Underneath” by Kathi Appelt, an enchanting story about an unlikely family of animals, an ancient mythological creature, and a very damaged man. This story grips the heart and keeps readers on the edge of their seats. Themes of loneliness, family, evil, revenge, redemption, and the meaning of love are weaved throughout this beautiful story. We will explore these themes through writing and art. We will also learn about the responsibility of caring for pets, the crisis of abandoned pets in our country, and what we can do to make a positive difference.
