No one believed him, and he had embarrassed his father and was disappointed in Chicken Little. Chicken Little tries everything to make his dad not be embarrassed of him anymore. So, Chicken Little tries baseball. Since Chicken Little is small and short, it didn’t really work out for him, but he won the game for his team. Once he got home, he realizes that the same hexagon shape from the sky came into his room.
In the beginning, Mr. Arthur Radley’s son generally roused a lot of trouble and caused a ruckus, culminating in him and his friends locking the town sheriff inside a courthouse. However, Mr. Radley didn’t know that his son was causing trouble until he was arrested. In the words of Scout, “Nobody in Maycomb had nerve enough to tell Mr. Radley that his boy was in the wrong crowd.”(10). This quote perfectly sums up the unique but relatable character criteria. The quote is not portraying people as heroes all the time.
However almost everyday Jem finds toys or random objects in the tree out front of the Radleys house. This gives Jem the idea that Boo isn 't some horrible monster after all. “Atticus believes Jem killed Ewell in self-defense, but Tate makes him realize that Boo Radley actually stabbed Ewell and saved both children 's lives.”(lee 28) This quote shows that the children had been put in a situation where the so-called “monster” Boo Radley saved their lives and they now could look at him not as some maniac but a hero and regular person who stays inside to protect himself from the stereotypes and cruelty of the world because of something people had said and that had been spread throughout the
In To Kill A Mockingbird, Jem is a 13 year old boy who, as he grows older, faces a rough childhood of being criticized by others because of his father, Atticus, defending a black person, Tom Robinson. For instance, on page 273 it’s written “Jem was scowling. It was probably a part of the stage he was going through, and I wished he would hurry up and get through it. He was certainly never cruel to animals, but I had never known his charity to embrace the insect world./ “Why couldn’t I mash him?” I asked./ “Because they don’t bother you,” Jem answered in the darkness.” This displays how Jem developed his moral compass through his experiences because Jem mentally grew from his experiences. From his experiences, Jem learned that the world isn’t always nice but it is rather cruel and because of this he grew to become empathetic, knowing how it felt to be put down by others.
The judge ordered him to a state industrial school but his father explained to the judge that he would keep Boo in check. Maycomb is a small town that passes around rumors; for example, it was said that Boo mutilates the towns people’s pets, and kills his neighbor’s plants. We later learn that Boo is kind, protective, and has watched over Jem and Scout with care as if they were his own. Boo has been judged based on appearance and stories and they are all nothing but malarkey. Dolphus Raymond was thought to be the town drunk even though he had never been a drinker.
Yea, I seriously hate this, the dentists are jerks, the nurse give you either too much toothpaste or water and stuff. Like my friend got, he got in the dental thingy and for goodness sake, it took him two and a half hour to PULL a tooth out. He called Dental “Hell”, which amazed some girls in our class. Like our “Best Poem Maker” said, Dental is Mental. It actually posted on the school board with the other poems he made.
Lennie has done so much to ruin his world in the book. When Lennie gets to a new place to live, he accidently kills mice, a puppy, and a person, but says he 's sorry which makes him seem sympathetic. Steinbeck was successful at making Lennie sympathetic because he cares about everything and will always be there for George but other characters keep sizing up to him and he doesn’t know
From what they see, the house is falling apart and is very dark inside all the time. Another one of their neighbors is Mrs. Dubose. They think of her as really disrespectful which causes no one to like her as a person. Half way through the trial, the kids go outside and meet Dolphus Raymond, who pretends to act a certain way to not get in trouble when he is being himself. These are the three main characters in the book that had their appearances misunderstood.
Miraculously, Scout kept her composure after two traumatizing events. Upon being attacked by a savage man, most nine-year-olds would be a wreck of emotions, but not Scout. All she worried about was Jem. Just a few minutes before, Bob Ewell attacked the two children on their way home from the Halloween celebration. Jem and Scout couldn’t see, however they could hear shuffling behind them and knew something suspicious was about to happen.
