Summary of Synthesized Information

Theme: The themes of Mo will-ems books are Never give up because in all of his books an animal is trying to do something that is hard. The pigeon is always trying to do something like "Don't let the pigeon drive the bus "or " don't let the pigeon stay up late". Then theirs Leonardo the not so scary monster. He is always trying to scare people but nothing works. Until he scares this little kid so much he started to cry.

Tone: The tone of his books are happy and sad. For example Knuffle bunny, the little girl is the happiest girl you could ever meet but if mess with her knuffle bunny your gonna pay. Then she's the saddest girl you could meet. Another example is Leonardo the not so scay monster. Leonardo is really sad because he cant scare anybody until he finally scares this little boy, which made him really happy. For my last example I will be doing We are in a book. The elephant and the pig are scared and sad because they can't figure out where they are, until they find out they are in a book.
