Island of the Blue Dolphins
Alliteration: the morning was quiet except for the noise of the little birds flying from bush to bush and the cries of the gulls who did not like these strangers. (page 103)

Similes: the water was so clear that it was like the air around me. (page 102)
There were many hummers which can stand still in the air and look like bits of polished stone and have long tongues to sip honey with. (page 108)
It was made from strings of the yucca bush and had a small opening at the top and hung down like a pouch. (page 109)

Onomatopeia: (...) making their reep, reep sound. (page 110)

Personification: the dunes were covered with mats of sand flowers, which are red and have tiny eyes that are sometimes pink and sometimes white. (page 108)
(...)Flying to bush to bush and the cries of the gulls(...) (page 103)
(...) much sweeter than the cries of the gulls or the crows or the talk of the pelicans(...) (page 109)
