Being a soldier myself I could relate to “the lines of soldiers standing at attention” (1309) and the mouse possessing no military training, was not as crisp as the beetles leading him. The executioner, “a raccoon, wearing the traditional black mask” (1309) was a little humorous to me, as was the large praying mantis (the preacher) and the large bullfrog, “the Kings messenger” (1309). After completing the story the first time, I could look back and see things differently. After rereading the story, I looked at things as they were in the story. The animals wondering around town for hours did not seem to
Why would I?” So the hen did the work all by itself feeling full of revenge and hatred (revenge, hatred). The next morning, the dog was found dead hanging from the ceiling stripped of its skin. The cat did notice the missing dog the next day but did not care enough to find out why he was missing. The crazy red hen baked a cornbread and asked who would help eat the bread and the greedy cat said “I will”. The hen replied “I’ll do that” and ate the bread alone.
It appears that he is shouting at the boy, making the boy feel intimidated. At this point, I felt sorry for the boy as he is being put under imense pressure by Green Beret to give him the information he wants. Green Beret also says: “You’ve got one minute kid. Tell us where or we kill father... tell us where or your father – dead.” Green Beret speaks to the boy incorrectly, as you would speak to a foreigner to make sure the boy understood him. Even though, Green Beret is speaking to him using simple and easy to understand English, the boy may not have understood him, so this makes his father’s death even more shocking.
“We passed by the Santa Claus display and Andy started acting funny. He said Santa Claus reminded him of Rob. So Andy started getting depressed and he wouldn’t talk and just wasn’t any fun.” (Draper 62). A final example of the plot that young adults find engrossing is when Andy shot himself in the head with his father’s rifle. I am sure it grabs many readers attention because it is not what one would expect to happen.
What?” Ricky: “A slowpoke.” “Knock, knock.” “Who`s there?” “Snow.” “Snow who?” “Snow one`s better than you.” Misha: “What does a horse wear on her wedding day?” Amina: “I don`t know.

Something you see in parasite Why did the chicken cross the playground? To get to the other slide!
With his good intentions and smart thoughts, it made the other biguns feel inferior. As Piggy tried to state ways that could organize their ‘society’, the others would just tell him to be quiet. As the others would bully him, he’d always rely on Ralph to back him up which didn’t happen all the time. His character wasn’t very fit for survival on a deserted island, which made him complain more than the other boys did. As he followed the others up the mountain to the fire, he would continuously complain about his asthma and how he was tired.
Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird. "(p.69) The mockingbird symbolizes these two characters because it does not have its own song. Whereas, the blue jay is loud and obnoxious, the mockingbird only sings other birds' songs. Therefore, the mockingbird is seen through the other birds. The people of Maycomb only knew Boo Radley and Tom Robinson by what others said about them.
He even compares his collie and cat to Hugh’s 2 horses and pet monkeys. Throughout the story he compares how they do the same activities, but the way the activities play out are way different. Their lives were different in so many ways, yet in a way eerily similar. Hugh has went through things no kids should have to, from witnessing a dead man hanging from a light pole after a trip to the theatre or a pig assassinated on a class field trip. These are things that most adults couldn’t handle let alone a young pre-teenager.
We clearly see prejudice in the narrator’s character from the starting gate of the story. In the beginning of the story, the narrator says, “In the movies, the blind moved slowly and never laughed. Sometimes they were led by seeing-eye dogs.” Even before the arrival of the blind man, the narrator has a predetermined idea that blinds are depressed and slow people who are incapable of functioning without their seeing canine. The fact that “The narrator” got his stereotype from the movies and believes in them not only shows how puerile and biased he is but also his ignorance. He also shows his prejudice rude comments by asking Robert, “What side of the train did you sit on?” The narrator lives in a protected home and Robert’s coming over to stay the night is an assault on his stereotypical fort.
