Story #3 - Book Report

May 19, 2011

     My book report today is about Eats, Shoots, and Leaves.  This is a good book for learning more about punctuation.  The author covers commas, apostrophes, semi-colons, & periods. 
     So that's all as it should be, all in order.  As far as plot goes, it's the age old story: Girl meets boy, boy hates girl, girl makes boy cake, cake explodes, everyone licks their hands, life goes on.
     I think the strongest symbolism in this story is the relationship of the size of our ego to the size of the wig.  Extra large hair equals extra large lessons in finding yourself
     After the Heroine spent 7 years in a cheese factory she really grew, not just in hair size, but heart size.  And that's really what it is all about. 
     Maybe that's why it never sold too many copies.
