Transcript of Character Descriptions

How to write a description that helps to tell a part of the story, instead of just a list of adjectives! L.I Writing interesting character descriptions From Harry Potter He was a big, beefy man with hardly
any neck, although he did have a very
large mustache. Mrs. Dursley was thin and blonde and had nearly twice the usual amount of neck, which came in very useful as she spent so much of her time craning
over garden fences, spying on the
neighbors. Hagrid (Harry Potter) A giant of a man was standing in the
doorway. His face was almost completely
hidden by a long, shaggy mane of hair
and a wild, tangled beard, but you could
make out his eyes, glinting like black
beetles under all the hair. Mrs Trunchbull "Miss Trunchbull, the Headmistress, was something else altogether. She was a gigantic holy terror, a fierce tyrannical monster who frightened the life out of pupils and teachers alike. There was an aura of menace about her even at a distance, and when she came up close you could almost feel the dangerous heat radiating from her as from a red-hot rod of metal. When she marched – Miss Trunchbull never walked, she always marched like a stormtrooper with long strides and arms aswinging when she marched along a corridor you could actually hear her snorting as she went, and if a group of children happened to be in her path, she ploughed right on through them
like a tank, with small people bouncing off her to
left and right." Now for our own description Who could this be?

The creature was as tall as a house. He moved across the land, slowly stopping and plucking tractors and trucks from the ground far below. He seemed to inspect them, between his giant thumb and finger, before delicately placing them into his huge jaw and crushing them between his scissor sharp teeth. Now for our own description The mean man had brown hair and a black jumper on. He had a dirty beard and was unkind. He hated giants.
