Thesis

Throughout the novel Walk Two Moons Sharon Creech uses judgements to show people not to be so quick to judge, and to walk two moons in their moccasins before you judge.

Judgement #1 Mrs. Cadaver

One of the major judgements made in Sharon Creeches novel Walk Two Moons is that Mrs. Cadaver killed her husband. One of the judgements made n the novel is that Mrs. Cadaver killed her husband and buried his chopped his chopped up parts in the backyard. "Maybe Mr. Birkway helped her chop up her husband." (Creech 32) Sal and Pheobe watch Mrs. Cadaver chop down trees and haul them away. "I've seen her chop down trees and lug them away." (Creech 86) Later in the book the author reveals that Mr. Cadaver died in a car accident. "Her husband died when a drunk driver rammed into his car." (Creech 218) The judgement that Mrs. Cadaver killed her husband comes up a lot to tell readers not to to be so quick to judge. It's to tell readers to walk two moons in their moccasins before you judge them.

Judgements #2 Mike Birkway

Another big judgement made in Sharon Creeches novel Made Two Moons is that Mike Bickle is a lunatic that is leaving notes and wanted to harm them. "Sal do you detect any sign of lunacy?" (Creech 43) They thought that the lunatic was leaving notes at the Winterbottems. "I believe she thought it came from the potential lunatic." They had a few encounters with him and always ran away thinking that he would harm them. " There doesn't appear to any place he could be hiding a gun." ( Creech 43) In the end Mike Bickle turned out to be Mrs. Winterbottoms son. "Mike is my son" (Creech 248) The judgment is even thought you've talked to that person it doesn't mean you know them completely. Get to know person and walk two moons in their moccasins before you judge.
