Paul is the tenth chapter of Sideways Stories From Wayside School. Paul is unable to resist the temptation to pull Leslie's pigtails. He pulls one of her pigtails, earning him his name on the board, and then, after a brief struggle (including a hallucination of the other pigtail talking), the other pigtail, thus earning him a checkmark. He figures that he can pull Leslie's pigtails twice a day with impunity, until Leslie yells out in pain again. Paul's name is then circled and he is sent home early.
Notes & Trivia
- It is suggested that Paul did not actually pull Leslie's pigtails the third time, and that Leslie's yell was unprovoked.
- This is one of those rare chapters where Todd doesn't get his name on the DISCIPLINE List or get sent home early on the Kindergarten Bus, most likely because he wasn't mentioned in the chapter.
