Aunt Pegg

Extracts from this document...


Prompt: Re-read the descriptions of: Aunt Pegg in paragraphs 2 and 3. The children in paragraph 5. ________________ Select words and phrases from these descriptions, and explain how the writer has created effects by using this language. ________________ ?She is a nightmare!? said my friend after we read ?Aunt Pegg? passage. To us, Aunt Pegg is an awful, hideous, evil woman, and we feel sorry for the children who wrote the passage. How can we feel that way?
