He told them that his friend only wanted a game or an ADVENTURE. He shouted, "This gift will never be INTRODUCTORY present that will lead to something special or fun! In fact, your selection will REDUCE my interest in bringing back a nice SOUVENIR from a wonderful party!" In spite of his unhappiness, the VERDICT was to bring a book. His parents, disappointed in his negative attitude, declared his outbursts examples of unacceptable MISCONDUCT. (Word INVENT is not in the story.)
