Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Tommy and the Cloud is an attempt to create an experience. It tells of a sr.1all boy's imagination, and his search for something more satisfying; than that provided by ordinary childhood.
The story is followed by a subjective analysis of Tommy and the Cloud in light of certain literary qualities shared by "good" children's books. Some of the concepts to be explored will include theme--the underlying idea or ideas of a story; originality of idea or presentation--there's a difference between a truly unique approach and an unrealistic overly-fantastic "ripoff"; and characterization--do the people seem real and lifelike? The reader may wish to keep these three points in mind as he travels through Tommy's world.
