The Poisonwood Bible, written in 1998 by Barbara Kingsolver, is a bestselling novel about a family led by the evangelistic Reverend Nathan Price, who in 1959 moved his family from Georgia to the village of Kilanga in the Belgian Congo. Many elements of The Poisonwood Bible allude to parallels that can be drawn in biblical texts, such as the names of the Price children, the events that happen to them, and the aptly named titles of the chapters. Kingsolver also includes alternative ways to worship in Christianity that differ from the traditional ‘organized’ way. Though the novel is packed with Christian symbolism and double-meanings, Kingsolver turns the notion of a 'bible' on its head by narrating the story solely through the eyes of five

In his book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell discovered a basic pattern that can be found in all stories portraying a hero. In his hero’s monomyth, the main character is called to an adventure into a foreign land and the skills obtained during the journey are later tested to defeat their toughest challenge. An example of a heroic monomyth can be illustrated in Marissa Meyer’s fantasy novel, Cinder, because the heroine is called to an adventure that she at first refuses, explores an unfamiliar landscape, the castle, where she learns more about her tragic past, and soon comes face to face with her greatest adversary. The events of Cinder follow a linear story that begins in New Beijing, China. The main character, Linh Cinder, is a young, cyborg mechanic at a local market.
Looking at the elements of a graphic novel, Satrapi uses caption, movement and mood in both of the panels in order to enhance the significance on the narrative. The first panel is an illustration of thousands of children being bombed. They are all in the air with their keys around their neck. The bomb is drawn with sharp and dark angles stabbing into the children’s bodies. This is extremely important in the book because it shows one of the consequences of the Iranian Revolution: thousands of innocent people died from the war and no one was able to help.

All these tokens combined would make the “Deathly Hallows”.

Lewis is most famous for his book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. This is the first out of all the Narnia books. Lewis was most inspired to write his fantasy fiction books by the refugee children who came to stay in his house during the bombings by Nazi Germany (“The Lion” 151).
