A very important question is asked and answered at the end of Chapter XI: Questions, Questions, Questions in Miss Missy’s School. But I can’t tell you what it is! (Though you may be able to guess.)
This is the chapter where the Big Dogs– including Tiger the Cat– tell their stories about Tommy’s insatiable curiosity. Aubrey is a bit embarrassed and apologizes to everyone. “Tommy should know better than to waste your time like that,” she says.
Rocky says “Ruff,” and Tiger agrees.
