1 "Yuck," said Carla after she bit into an apple. "It is soft and does not taste good."
2 "Why not choose another one?" asked Grandpa.
3 "They all look the same," said Carla. "May we go to the orchard for new ones?"
4 "Not today," said Grandpa. "I know of something else we can do with those apples."
5 "Do you mean we can put them in a pie?"
6 Grandpa shook his head. "We can make apple heads."
7 "Apple heads?" asked Carla, making a face.
8 "That's right," said Grandpa with a twinkle in his eye. "Let me show you how it is done."
9 Grandpa chose an apple out of the bag. Then he used a paring knife to take the skin off. He used the knife to make a few quick cuts in the side of the apple.
10 Carla's eyes grew round as she saw a nose, eyes, and mouth take shape. When Grandpa was done, he set it on the table.
