The story begins in Pompeii in 79 A.D. There is a homeless orphaned boy named Tito and a dog named Bimbo and both rely on each other.
Mt. Vesuvius is erupting and the people of Pompeii didn't heed the warnings so this was unexpected. They didn´t see clues like the other eruptions of other empires.
Protagonist and Antagonist
The protagonist or the good guy is Tito the main character.
The antagonist is Mt. Vesuvius. Protagonists and Antagonists don´t need to be people or living things. Mt Vesuvius is the one the bring Pompeii into destruction.
Theme- Unconditional Love and Loyalty Bimbo helps and loves Tito and so does Tito love Bimbo. When Tito faints, Bimbo goes back to get him his raisin cake and Bimbo dies
Authors Purpose is to entertain us with the short story. While it gives us facts, it is realistic fiction, it could happen but it is still made up.
The characters, I believe were credible. Both characters both depict a boy that is blind and bimbo as a service dog. Tito uses his other senses to walk just like other blind people. Also, Bimbo is the dog that cares and guides Tito.
