Buck loved him so much that he saved John from drowning in a river, killed a man who started a fight, and won a $1,600 bet for him. However, as strong as Buck’s love was for John Thornton, his call to the wild was stronger. This led Buck on an adventure for many days deep into the woods with a newly befriended timber wolf.

Tom begins to train Benny on how to fight and survive in the great Rot & Ruin which is the zombie-infested land surrounding their community.

Introduction: Boy Overboard a book written by Morris Gleitzman is a book about Jamal and Bibi on the quest to try and become Australian football stars but they must conquer lots of challenges by using their family 's ancestry. I think Jamal and Bibi use ancestry more than personal experiences! The bakers from Dad’s side have helped Jamal a lot like when they were on the boat and Rashida gave Jamal flour to cook bread so they didn’t starve. But a few days later pirates came and took the bread and threw it overboard. When Jamal, Bibi, Rashida and Omar were on the smugglers boat and Jamal says to Bibi keep emptying the water from the boat with vegetable tins in the massive storm I think of Dad’s ancestors, countless generations of bakers who got up at 3am even though they needed more sleep who stick at it, dragging sacks of flour, kneading dough, twisting their backs to reach into scalding ovens, loaf
In the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a group of men living in a psychiatric ward are dealing with different types of disorders. The character that I chose to observe and analyze was Billy Bibbit. Billy is a young man who struggles to speak without stuttering and make his own decisions. He seeks approval from those around him and is always worried he will disappoint those around him. Although some people at this psychiatric ward are committed, Billy is a voluntary patient.

In alternative to the themes friendship and gender there was as well the presences of taking risks. The 1993 classic, had Benny the Jet and his friends playing in the sandlot. When they discover that a considerable portion of the group's balls have wound up in Mr. Mertle's junkyard over the sandlot's back wall, which is ensured by a goliath puppy known as "The Beast," who had supposedly eaten a child sufficiently stupid to enter it.

Billy feels more guilt for Rubin’s death because Billy tripped him in the movie, making Billy the cause that Rubin is dead. The book’s version of the story stated that Rubin was running with the axe, tripped on a stick, and impaled himself, killing himself. Additionally, Billy attended Rubin’s funeral in the movie, instead of the privately sneaking onto the Pritchard’s property to the private graveyard and placing flowers on his grave like in the novel, which shows that Billy was very determined to get a closure from the horrifying experience, also showing that Billy was really wanting to let Rubin’s family know that at least someone cared about the death of one of the most annoying children in the country. These are simply a few of the key points the novel, Where the Red Fern Grows differs from its movie counterpart. Yet I believe these are the key relationships that throw off the symbolism and meaning the story, but keep the storyline in check, differing the depth of the novel and the movie.
