A volunteer.”(242) This is represented as the Dust Witch is in a hurry to close her act because she knows she is in danger of being killed, but instead of closing the act Charles Holloway volunteers to participate in it allowing the act to continue. This portrays situational irony because the Witch’s plan to close the act didn’t follow through which shows how much she underestimated Charles Halloway and the boys. Additionally, dramatic irony is also profoundly used throughout the novel. Firstly, dramatic irony is conveyed when Bradbury writes “The crescent moon I have marked on the bullet is not a crescent moon. It is my own smile.”(251) He recounts this as Charles Halloway is about to shoot the Dust Witch with the bullet that is going to end her life.

In the story “Seventh Grade,” Victor learns trying to impress a girl with a different personality is not the smartest thing to do through his embarrassing moments. For instance, Victor lingered in the classroom to say something clever to Teresa when she walks out of the door, but instead, when Teresa exits the room, he just says something dumb and embarrasses himself. “He smiled back and said, “Yeah, that’s me.” His brown face blushed. Why hadn’t he said, “Hi, Teresa,” or “How was your summer?” or something nice?” (Soto p. 17) This shows that Victor tried to act more clever than actually he is to impress Teresa, but ends up embarrassing himself while doing so. This proves if Victor had just acted like himself, thing would have been better.
