Missing pages

It's widely known that authors have their works edited prior to publication. But I was a little surprised to discover that this has even happened to authors of childrens books.

The Empty Pot by Demi is one such book. This is a charming story about a boy named Ping who discovers the power of honesty.

But in the published version of the book, the other children lie, but are never punished for their wrongs. That's because the page with that part of the story was deleted prior to publication.

But here now, for the first time, is that missing page, that I totally made up. And isn't real. And doesn't violate any copyrights because it is a parody.
