The monkey costumes resemble children because monkeys are not the smartest animals. The king goes along with the idea because at the masquerade the king would be pranking the guests, which he liked. Hop Frog makes slight, clever modifications to the suits to make the plan work. The chains make the 8 men hand from the ceiling, and the tar with barley is very flammable. The deaths of the king and his men are definitely a tragedy, but regarding the torture the king does to Hop Frog the reader feels no pain or sorrow for him.

The True Themes of "The Monkey 's Paw" More and more horror stories are written and published, but one of the most meaningful stories is "The Monkey 's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs. Although Jacobs spent most his career writing humorous stories, he is always known by this frightening story. " The Monkey 's Paw" is set in the UK after the World War I, and its plot looks like a three wishes tale; someone appears and gives the main character three wishes. However, the monkey 's paw does not only give people wishes, it also gives brutal consequences. That makes this story the most horrifying.
In the story, “The Monkey’s Paw,” by WW Jacobs, the White family have their friend, Sargent- Major Morris over at their house. With him, he brought stories of the wars he fought in, but he also brought the story of The Monkey’s Paw, which was a legend that said that the three people who were in possession of the monkey’s paw were granted three wishes. Mr. White received the monkey’s paw from Sargent Major and decided to make a wish. The course of his events, documented in the story, were soon made into a movie.
Sierra, however, adds onomatopoeic phrases throughout the story, but only to improve the flow of the book and not for their actual onomatopoeic effect. This is an example of what Hill would refer to as indirect “borrowings-as-theft,” because Sierra “reshape[s] the meaning of the borrowed material into forms that advance their own interest, making it useless or irrelevant, or even antithetical, to the interests of the donor community.” Similarly, The Crab and the Monkey falls victim to many of the same things as Tasty Baby Belly Buttons. Although the American version of The Crab and the Monkey does not directly borrow specific Japanese words, it does borrow the story and changes it. This is another example of “borrowings-as-theft,” as once again the story is borrowed, but the meaning is reshaped to teach kids about a disagreement between two animals instead of the original lessons on respect and honor.

The amount wished for was the exact amount of money they need to pay off the family’s home.
American Born Chinese is a story of three, although it is really about two characters, who learn that it is better to be themselves then to try to be someone else. A few panels that spoke to me were the ones from the bottom left on page 13 all the way towards the end of page 20. These pages spoke out to me because these panels showed a change of character and it showed a violent reaction because of that change. This change could have prevented most of the stories told in the novel. On the following panels, The Monkey King of Flower-Fruit Mountain is eager to enter in the dinner party in heaven.
