Storyboard Text

  • Tone
  • Doodle! Doodle!
  • " It is. And before I'll help you down from the loft , you're going to have to touch it."
  • Mood
  • " It's not mine."
  •                 Brother's Character Traits
  • It is really embarrassing that he doesn't know how to walk yet.
  • The tone of this scene is depressing. In this scene we find out that Doodle dies. He dies because  brother began to run. Doodle began chasing after him. Earlier in the story the doctor says that Doodle can't run or do any hard physical activities or else he might die. 
  • Doodle's Character Traits
  • This scene is cold and mean.  I selected these words because in this scene brother is showing Doodle his coffin which was supposed to be for him when he was little. Doodle also denies that this is his coffin.
  • Theme
  • Doodle! Doodle!
  • I would describe brother as being a dynamic character. He changes from being really selfish and not wanting a brother to wanting to help him. He soon begins to care about him later on in the story but he also has some moments where he is really selfish.
  • Figurative Language
  • Doodle is a dynamic character. He goes through many changes  throughout the story.  One of the major changes in the story is that he learns how to walk. He practices with brother and after some time he learns how to stand up and walk.
  • I think the theme of the story is to not take any thing for granted. Brother takes  Doodle for granted and when Doodle dies brother finally appreciates him. 
  • The author used the simile " He collapsed onto the grass like a half empty flour sack." The author used this to show how weak his legs were. He wasn't able to stand up on his own so he fell onto the ground. Another simile is " Success lay at the end of simmer like a pot of gold..." The author used this simile to show that as soon as summer began they would practice walking.
