  • "... this house that clothed and fed and rocked them to sleep and played and sang, and was good to them."- Bradbury 115 This quote made me think of the house in a maternal light, and it is mentioned later that the house had become mother and father and nursemaid to the children (Bradbury 119, 127). With this in mind, I thought it best to give the house feminine touches, like lots of pink. The frowning television is to represent the house's hatred toward the parents for threatening to turn it off (Bradbury 127, 128).
  • "'... there's hatred here. You can feel it coming out of the sky.'"- Bradbury 127 Like the TV in the bedroom, I showed the resentment from the nursery through the animals in the veldt by giving them red eyes.
  • "' [Peter and Wendy] come and go as they like; they treat us as if we are the offspring.'"- Bradbury 124 Because the children act as if they are in charge, I tried to make the parents smaller and the children bigger. I chose the pastel colours and bright blue for Lydia and George because of this relationship. I also placed little zebras on their outfits because at the beginning of the book, when Lydia takes George into the nursery, they notice the lions feeding on something.
