The resolution is when he made the third wish so he couldn't use the paw again.

Quallties do you see in the characters

The mood(s) are Terror, Mystery, and Horror

I think Authors purpose in writing this short story is to tell us not to make wishes that we will not to be able to take back and also to tell us that trying to get what you want by being a snob is not going to get you what you want. You have to work hard and acheive something in order to get something. When you work hard for something you want you have that feeling inside you that you did something right and didn't have to throw a fit or be a bad person in order to get it.

Theme:

Somebody..... Wanted..... But..... So?

Mr.White wanted to change his fate, but the three wishes didn't work. So he couldn't use the monkey paw again.

What do you think will happen next?

What I think will happen next is that he will try to make another wish the wish that he makes will be something that he doesn't mean to or something that will change his life forever and he won't be able to take it back.
