  1. Silver:
    In the text it says that he was in terror which means he was frightened as well as it says that the June grass was as tall as he was these words suggest that it is a metaphor because it describes it as it was tall. The place is described as being full of grass that is really tall and blades tattooed with tiger skins of sunlight.

  4. I think the character feels sad because it says i was lost and didn’t no when to move.I think the place is dirty because it says a tropic heat oozed up from the ground,rank with sharp odours of roots and neatels.

  5. The author has made the setting come to alive by using a range of descriptive language including personfaction similes and metaphors. For eaample the grasshoperes that chirped and chattered and leapt through the air like monkeys. This tells you how they flyed and how high they jumped, thats an example of a simile because monkeys are you chatty and they jump really high. The author has also used figrative language.

    The author has used figurative language especially similes and metaphors to make it come to life.One example of a metaphor is ‘each blade tattooed with tiger-skins of sunlight.’It’s saying that the grass are tattooed with sunlight and the sun is tiger skin which is really not.It creates an image in the readers head.The simile that he writer has used is ‘grasshoppers that chirped and chattered and leapt like monkeys.’The grasshoppers jumped so high the author described them as monkeys.The author compared them as other things and it creates an image in the readers head.
