Storyboard Text

  • This is part of the rising action because Christopher finds the letters of his mother and realizes she is not dead. The story started with the conflict of the investigation of the dead dog but now that he found all the letters, it adds an extra, bigger conflict between him and his dad. He realizes his father lied to him which will causes more tention between them.
  • The exposition is the first stage of a plot and gives important backround information, introduces the setting and important characters. This is the exposition because it tells us where it is and what the event was that indirectly made all the secrets come out. In the book, the main character, Christopher, introduces himself in the second chapter and is also part of the exposition. I only chose to combain as many events as possible in on picture and therefore does he introduces himself in the second picture.
  • The rising action is the stage in a plot where the conflict develops and the events build toward the climax. Complications arise, that make the conflict more intense and tension grows as the characters struggle to resolve that conflict. This is a part of the rising action because he starts investigating who killed the dog. During this investigation he finds out things about his mother and Mr Shear. There also starts to develop tension between Christopher and his dad because his dad does not want Christopher investigating the murder of the dog.
  • This is part of the rising action because his father explains why he did what he did. This was his way of dealing with the conflict between him and his wife but now realizes that this was not a good solution. It does leed to more tension between him and Christopher.
  • This is part of the rising action because it gives us more information about Christophers home situation and his mother being 'dead' is a big part of Christophers fathers' conflict. As the reader you also realize Mrs Shear and Christophers father were more than just friends at that time. Knowing this makes you understand the dad's conflict better.
  • At first you'd think that this is the climax because you find out who killed the dog Wellington. But due to the other events in the story the main conflict is the fact that his mother is still alive and his dad lied about that rather than finding the dogs killer. His father telling him that he killed the dog is the absolute limit for Christopher. He decides that he cannot trust his dad anymore and therefore has to live with his mother. The tension/conflict between Christopher and his dad has reached the limit wich is leading to the climax of Christopher finding his mother.
  • This is the rising action because Christopher is trying to resolve his conflict by traveling to his mother.
  • This is falling action because it brings us a step closer towards the resolution. Christophers mother and Mr. Shear are official broken up and she starts her own life in Swindon.
  • mood
  • I really enjoyed reading this book. It is about a pretty serious topic and is actually pretty sad but through the writing style does it still make you laugh. This is because you read it from Christophers perspective which makes it less sad. He sees things different because of his autismn and doesn't realize that his behaviour can be hard for others. If you'd have no clue of what autism is you probably doe not consider this book sad at all. Also the drawings and extra 'off topic' information makes it a very enjoyable book.
  • The climax is the point of maximum interest or tension and a turning point in the story. The climax occurs after the reader has understood the conlict and points to the resolution. This is the climax because after a, for the authistic Christopher, challenging jouney to London, he finally sees his mother again. You got to know all the conflicts and are wondering what will happen with the dad. You also get a hint about the resolution because Mr Shear is not perticually happy with Christophers arrival.
  • The faling action shows the results of the important action that happend in the climax. Tension eases when the falling action begins but the final outcome of the story is not yet fully worked out. Right after the climax, Mr Shear and Christophers mother get in a fight and they leave. They move back to their hometown. This is falling action because it's a result of the climax.
  • The reslolution.... This is the resolution because everything comes together. His mother has her own place in the city and Christopher reastablishes his trust with his father, slowly. He gets a dog which is a nice ending sice it all started with a dog in the first place.
