What do Arnold's drawings tell us that his writing does not? What is the relationship between the pictures and the words? Do you think the story is more effective with his pictures? Why or why not?


message 2: by Rachael (new)

Rachael (daisylibrarian) What do Arnold's drawings tell us that his writing does not? - I think it shows you a more vivid image of his life.

What is the relationship between the pictures and words? - As they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words". The pictures enhance the words.

Do you think the story is more effective with his pictures? - yes.

Why or why not? - It helped emphasize points he wanted to make in the story while giving us a comical relief.
