Aware that he couldn’t inform his parents towards Byron’s actions; consequently, Kenny makes an effort to find some approach to bond with Byron, yet he talks to him harshly. “I thought I told your jive little ass to shut the hell up and enjoy the damn cookies” (Curtis 82). Right after this act, a sympathetic notion is revealed by the sight of death. Initially, Byron was agitating a morning dove, throwing cookie crumbs on it. Byron saunters over and picks up the bird, “and with his hand other one gently brushed pink frosting off the dove’s chest” (Curtis 83).
As the story is progressing however, I notice the narrator is being nothing but evil to his brother by doing things such as: trying to hurt him in a go-cart and mocking and changing his name. It also registers to me that the red, dead peacock is a mysterious parallel and foreshadows to upcoming events in the short read. In this twisting tale of unrealistic reality, we notice the narrator does not want to be with, near, or around his brother but his mother forces him to be. Although Doodle is finally capable of crawling, he still cannot walk, so “Daddy [is building] him a go-cart and I [have] to pull him around.” (Hurst 110) Brother states. When I hear the word “go-cart”, I think fun and excitement; but Brother sees it as a punishment and hates the idea.

However, he does not have enough money to buy one. Therefore, if Black was to send the broomstick Harry would likely use it for 2 reasons; 1) he has craved for the Firebolt and 2) he is in dire need of a broomstick. So Black could have sabotaged the broomstick and next time Harry played Quidditch, the broomstick could have failed, causing Harry to die. 5) What do you predict from Ron finding his bed sheet bloodied and orange cat hairs, all while realising that Scabbers is missing? Crookshanks must have ate/killed Scabbers since Crookshanks has orange hairs and has been attacking Scabbers constantly.
John was a victim of a prank conducted by his fellow classmates, where they placed the class gerbil in John's lunchbox moments before lunch break. Upon opening his lunchbox, John reacted intensely in discovering the gerbil and having his finger bitten; while the gerbil attempted to escape. The classmates laughed in amusement; but John was sent home early, because he could not calm done his anxiety. In the following days, the wariness he felt for animals had developed into a phobia. John could not visit his aunt's house, because she had a cat; and he would immediately walk the other direction if he heard a dog bark (Newby 198).
When confronted with fleas in the mattress of the bed, the father is instructed to by a man on the street to “confuse the little buggers” by turning the mattress upside down. Obviously, this is not going to rid the mattress of fleas, nor will it confuse them. The reader is aware of this, and the incident is humorous. Another example of humor that can be found in the novel occurs on the day of Frank’s first communion. He becomes sick and his communion wafer finds its way into his grandmother’s back yard.
