Storyboard Text

  • Personification- Windows so small you'd think they were holding their breath.
  • Personification- The mother's feet, plump and polite, descended...
  • Hyperbole- There a million zillion kinds, says Nenny.
  • Hyperbole- You can nevr have too much sky. You can fall asleep and wake up drunk on sky, and sky can keep you safe when you are sad.
  • Imagery- And the story goes she never forgave him. She looked out the window her whole life, the way so many women sit their sadness on an elbow.
  • Imagery- Someday I will have a best friend of my own. One I can tell my secrets to. One who will understand my jokes without my having to explain them. Until them I am a red balloon, a balloon tied to an anchor.
