Have you ever read the story “The Boy who could Turn into Things” by:Staurt Baum? If you have, have you noticed that the character Brian, the protagonist, is lonely. If you have not read the story you should know that the character Brian has powers to turn into things. I think Brian is lonely because Brian has no friends and is ignored.

To begin with, the first reason why Brian is lonely is because he has no friends. For example,Brian sits in front of his window on weekends because he has no one to play with therefore, no one sits by Brian when it is lunch time. In the story Brian said that he wants a friend to at least sit by him and play with him outside. Last, when the first grade went on their field trip to the zoo none of the kids

    One thousand days passed before a little seed grew inside me. A lady with a big belly came in after me. She took a clear plastic bottle for the urine test from the receptionist, and then waddled to the toilet with a little boy of about three years clutching at her dress. The boys apple-like cheeks were smudged with chocolate and one hand was still holding on to a half-eaten bar with its wrapper all crinkled at the bottom. He smiled at me as he walked past. I winked at him. He winked back, closing both…

    The pieces I chose are “Boys” by Rich Moody and “The Things they Carried” by Tim O'Brien. “Boys” doesn't use any paragraphs, and is told through the repeated words “Boys enter the house…” (Moody).

    While Number the Stars and The Boy Who Dared both successfully address the difficult issue of the Holocaust, I found Lois Lowry’s novel much more child-empowering. Annemarie’s story remains somewhat separate from the horrors of Nazi Germany comparative to Bartoletti’s work, but Lowry puts that separation to good use. For example, when Annemarie struggles to understand the occupation of Denmark and asks her father, “sometimes I wonder why the king wasn’t able to protect us” (Lowry 15). This passage…
