The author states that he kept stuffed animals on his bed to protect him from ghosts, vampires and "to keep his big brothers from beating him up."(p. 31) We also get the feeling that his step dad also protects him from them. But, as mentioned before, Teddy is confused and disappointed more than being afraid although these emotions can mingle in so many ways in the child's mind.

George was naturally diffident and anxious and suffered from a speech impediment, “though he never lacked bravery or enterprise, and had a strong sense of duty.” (Royal Family History) Unbeknownst to most, George VI was not the only monarch with a stutter.

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.
