Her greed for food causes her to make egotistic decisions which may be the reason for her death later on in the tale. Hansel and Gretel are faced with temptation when they come across the witch’s house deep in the forest, “[t]he old woman had only pretended to be so kind… she was a wicked witch who waylaid children and had built her house out of bread to entice them” (145).

In the movie many characters are put into situations that are comical, but would in real life end in death. One such moment would be when a girl named Vurka Salt is thrown into an incinerator pit by squirrels who deem her a bad nut, as she tips over the edge of the pit the audience is given one last look at her fearful face.

Growing up we 've read picture books that have introduced us to literature, wildly funny characters and taught us how to use our imagination.

Baloo says that “they boast and chatter and pretend that they are a great people about to do great affairs in the jungle (Kipling, 31).” Today’s bullies and the Bandar-log monkeys believe that they are better than everyone else, and they both think that the things they do are something to be proud
The “Monkey’s Paw” is a short story of a close knitted family’s relationship being torn apart by a magical monkey’s paw that can grant any wish. The effects of the wishes are drastic and symbolic.

The main theme of the “Monkey's Paw” is fate, and how if fate is tampered with, it will reciprocate, essentially in the form of “an eye for an eye”.

Chin-kee is the Monkey King, Emissary of Tze-Yo-Tzuh (the big god in the novel) disguised as a very stereotypical Chinese immigrant who often visits his American “cousin” Danny.

He sees Chin-kee as the person he essentially never wants to see again because of his grotesque way of life, although ironically being Asian is not as bad as Jin sees it.

In “Peanut’s Fortune”, Tan uses narrative to move the plot forward. With Peanut’s sister narrating the short story, Tan’s writing is predominantly narrative because it depicts events in the view of Peanut’s sister who is essentially a bystander to Peanut and Wen Fu’s interactions. Not only does the writing portray her observations, but it also reveals the thoughts and feelings of Peanut’s sister to the reader. The narrative especially shows her growing envy for Peanut’s love with Wen Fu, but also shows the dear love she has for her sister. Occasionally, when important events occur or when introducing new characters, Tan interjects dialogue into the narrative, revealing the thoughts and perspective of others surrounding Peanut and her sister.
