Sam won’t let Agu play with her in the tree which has become a pirate ship in her imaginative games, saying ‘”I don’t know you. You’re not from my street.”’ Then he reveals a fact in response to something he hears her say which rouses her curiosity and leads to a new friendship as they begin to play together and subtly develop new understandings.
