Summary of Synthesized Information


I think the mood of almost all of H.A Rey books are happy because all of his books are very happy. I also feel like not one of his books ends in a sad way. I also realized that there may be some parts in his books that might be Sad but no matter what the ending are always happy.

Writing style

I think H.A Rey writing style includes a lot of pictures. He also Likes to put a decent amount of words. I also have noticed how in most of his books he has at least 35 or more pages in his books and i think that is a lot of pages for a children's book.
