Not a common text (Posted on 2018-11-07) Difficulty: 2 of 5
This passage is from Rudyard Kipling’s 1910 story “Brother Square-Toes.” What’s notable about it?

“‘What?’ says Toby, ‘I thought it was Gert Schwankfelder.’ He put down his fiddle and took a good look at me. ‘Himmel!’ he says. ‘I have hit the wrong boy. It is not the new boy. Why are you not the new boy? Why are you not Gert Schwankfelder?'”
