  • Word Choice
  • Alex Joy Twist project
  • Imagery
  • The tone of this story is described by Doodle's death. The tone starts to develop when Doodle's brother starts to feel guilty for leaving his brother to die in the harsh storm.
  • Style
  • The bleeding tree is an example of the word choice. Using words like blood, helps foreshadow the death of Ibis and Doodle. The author creates this negative connotation throughout the story, by using dark words.
  • Theme
  • The repetition of the color red,  connects all the dots, to perfectly describe the imagery in this story. The bleeding tree, the ibis, and Doodle's death all are factors that convey the imagery.
  • "The last graveyard flowers were blooming, and their smell drifted [through] our house, speaking softly the names of our dead."   This shows how doodle's disability, because he dies eralier in the story
  • Since Doodle could not walk, his older brother was not a big fan. Both brothers knew something needed to be fixed right now. So Doodle's brother trained him how to walk.
