It stays consistent with its fairytale genre, as there are few details in the images and yet invokes a sense of magic and enchantment. The story also seems to appeal to its young readers through its pictures that appear to deny the existence of coloring inside the lines.

Justice for those who deserve it, almost all around. But the perspective of the child-view as opposed to an adult really brings out a good feeling through this read. Although To Kill a Mockingbird may have many themes the themes that stand out the most are innocence, which gives the book a very loving feel; justice vs injustice, which creates an air of real life; and perspective, which enables the reader to see the story from a child’s point of view. To illustrate, innocence is key to the success of this novel. Finding the innocence in this novella is to be finding the mockingbirds, or the people who embody an animal-like sense of innocence.
One quote that explores how the main character, Dexter, is given a unique personality states “The helpless ecstasy of losing himself in her charm was a powerful opiate rather than a tonic”. This quote helps to provide some background on how Dexter is given a idiosyncratic persona. Essentially, the literary devices in “Winter dreams” are used to help provide each character with a personality. The use of imagery in this short tale is imperative to detailing the characters and their conversations. The story uses imagery various times to better convey the setting and plot of the story.
Many people use the end goal to justify their actions, whether they’re good or bad. Despite the strong themes and the maturity of the characters, you still see glimpses of their actual ages throughout the book adding humor and entertainment to the story.

In Spirited Away, there were many elements of fantasy that were very interesting. It began at first as the spirits came into the story, and with closer analysis, there are plenty of tiny details that are unrealistic, yet very effect, that make the story very magical. Not only that, but the morals of believing in yourself and showing manners to others are quite important. Parts of real life and being humans are very well combined with fantasy and adventure. The story of the Tempest represents revenge and forgiveness, with a world of magic mixed in.
Besides providing a natural way to include exposition, they help the audience experience what is occurring outside of the apartment, without having to drastically change the setting. If their content would have been more engaging, I believe they would have been the strongest part of this play. Other than that, there were many other strong aspects of Lost In Yonkers. The mirroring, Louie’s role, the flexibility, and the setting of the play were all other bright spots. The play starts and ends with Eddie talking to Grandma in her room and the boys talking with Bella.

A key example of this is Larry, her fiance who abandoned and her with their child. There were rumors about Larry and his playboy nature, but Antonia choose to see the good in him and was even prepared to be married to a man who did not care as deeply for her as she believed.
During the time of a Great War or great economic despair, people seek release from their anxieties in fantasy. Movies, plays, books, and other diversions drew people out of their own lives and into a safer, more glamorous world. For instance, Horatio Alger, Frank Capra and Walt Disney were known to showcase positive, idealized, and overly optimistic pictures—fairytales, some argue—that moved and inspired audiences, hence the prominence of the traditional, fairytale genre. And a trademark of this genre is having a feel good, happy ending. This appeals to mostly children and some adults, but it does not attract everyone, for some storytellers have separated themselves and have purposefully gone against this genre of storytelling by taking the controversial “anti-fairytale” approach, ending stories with a downbeat,
