Publishing in the 21st Century Literary Devices Allusion Allusion becomes a somewhat big part of this novel. For example, in the very beginning Uncle Press warns Bobby of the dangers of bringing things from the outside world into the new world. Bobby ignores this, however, and so begings the conflict. Denotation The problems that are created and eventually create the conflict in "Pendragon" are usually stated very clearly. The reader doesn't have to work very hard to figure out what the conflict is. Literary Devices: Continued Emily Croasdell The 21st Century is the current century. It began on January 1, 2001 and will end on December 31, 2100. During the 21st Century many political and historical changes have been made. For one, an African-American president was elected. Another is that a war was started in Afghanistan and Iraq. Those wars are slowly coming to an end, hopefully. Pendragon Writen by: D.J.

It seemed like a nonchalant comment from Uncle Press to Bobby, but as the story progresses you find that comment becoming more and more important. Analogy Analogy can be found in this novel, though not very often. An exmaple found is if you harbor greed, and let it continue, nothing good can come of it. Bobby is a 14-year-old basketball player with brown hair and brown eyes Loor is the daughter of Uncle Press' good friend. She is a fierce warrior. At first she and Bobby strongly dislike each other but they grow to understand each other. Loor is a Batu warrior with dark skin, brown eyes, and dark hair (usually tied in a long braid), with an extremely athletic body. Works Cited Bobby Pendragon is the main character in the novel. He is in love with Courtney Chetwynde. His Uncle, Uncle Press as he is refered to, intorduces him to the magical worlds that lie beyond our own and so beings Bobby's story. D.J. MacHale

To find it he must cross back and forth between our world and the frightening and dangerous landscape of its “twinner” counterpart. Only he can save his mother. Time, for him is of the essense, and it is running out. PERSONAL REVIEW: Due to its graphic nature, there are some parts of this book that certainly not be suitable for a high school classroom. With that in mind, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recomend it to any student for a leisure read. Three Assignments: Cause and Effect- have the students read the book one page at a time. As a class, stop after any major decision made by Jack. What do they think will happen now? What would they have done differently? Symbolism- Periodically, talk about the immense ammount of symbolism King and Straub implement in the story. What are some reasons for symbolism? Have them pick a symbol for each page, for example, and explain what it means to them. Draw their own pictures- With the words and pictures in mind, I think it would be cool to see how the students would draw the pictures differently if they were the artist of the book. Is there anything they felt the artist missed? Create their own picture book of their favorite potrtion of the book.
