summary for my book

H.A. Rey wanted to make his books for kids and keep them happy. But some of them have more of a serious mood. So he decided to make half and half. Then he went along with the idea and everyone loved his books.


H.A. Rey wanted no rhyme schemes,figurative language,or repeated words.But he did have good sentence structure.So he kept it that way so he had a consistent pattern.Then he continued to write like that and it all turned out good.
