Storyboard Text

  • Thank you bimbo!
  • Tito was a child that was blind from birth. Tito has no parents so Bimbo plays the role of a mother, father, friend, and master.
  • Exposition
  • In this story,the major conflict is that the town of Pompeii is being burnt down and buried in ashes from the explosion of Mount Vesuvius.
  • Conflict
  • Hi, I'm Mount Vesuvius and i'm the antagonist because I am the person who created the conflict within the story.
  • Hi, I'm Tito and I'm the protagonist because I am the main character of the story.
  • Antagonist and Protagonist
  • Theme
  • In this story the theme of the book is man vs. nature. I think this is the theme since in the story Tito and Bimbo tried to escape an explosion from Mount Vesuvius.
  • The reason why is because when I was excavating the town of Pompeii, I found the remains of a dog and was inspired to write a story about this dog. 
  • Hi, can you tell me a little bit about why you wrote the story "The Dog of Pompeii"?
  • Author's Purpose
  • Character Credibility 
  • I think Tito and Bimbo can be credible characters at times. In the story "The Dog of Pompeii", Tito and Bimbo were placed in to a real time zone in our history and experienced a real life tragedy that happened thousands of years ago. After the explosion of Mount Vesuvius, thousands of years later geologists were excavating the remains of Pompeii, Louis Utermeyer,  found skeleton of a dog that was almost 2000 years old. After he found this, he was inspired to write the story "The Dog of Pompeii". To this day we could still wonder if this story really happened thousands of years ago.
