significant because it shows that the book is trying to draw a picture in the reader's mind about
Furthermore, the illustrations paint a beautiful picture that I like to think is an insight into a child’s mind, which I is a key element in this book and what makes it so great. Since the book is narrated by a child the intentional simplicity of the words and the controlled chaos that is the illustrations breathes unadulterated life into a rather normal children’s book.
Hazel grace was remarkably negative during her cancer battle. A quote from the book is, on page 99, Hazel says “I’m like. Like. I’m like a grenade, Mom. I’m a grenade and at some point I’m going to blow up. I just want to stay away from people… because there’s nothing I can do about hurting you” She was saying that she is going to die and she wants to stay away from people so they don’t end up being hurt.
By giving the reader a visual representation to go along with the written text, Chast allows the reader to better understand what she is feeling in that exact moment. On page 137, Chast draws herself completely different in each panel. On this page she is describing her dinner experience with her parents one night in the dining room of “The Place”. Elizabeth (her mother) is asking George (her father) how many olives he wants, and this page depicts the back and forth argument that ensues about how many he should eat. In the first panel, Chast draws herself and her parents sitting at the table having a calm conversation. In the second panel, she draws the beginning of the argument, showing her mother’s amazement through her bulging eyes and large speech bubble that covers most of the panel. In a later panel, after making a suggestion that she thought would solve all the confusion, Chast draws herself in a cap and gown outfit alongside a Nobel Peace Prize trophy. This depiction emphasizes how she felt her suggestion would be appreciated by her parents, and also gives the reader the ability to understand her parent’s tendency to create large problems out of small disagreements. In the last panel, Chast’s parents violently scream at her for her suggestion, shown by the the large speech bubble outlined by a jagged edge. Chast was able to express five different emotions in just eight panels without using words to describe her feelings. By doing this, she is tapping into the reader's emotions; not only are the readers reading her story about this moment but they are also in the story with her. By giving the reader visuals that are easily related to, Chast makes the reader they feel the frustration just as she does. On top of showing her exact feelings towards her parents on this page, she also shows her parents’ personalities and how situations just like this one
Initially, the cover and title page of the book both play a key role in the layout of the story. On the cover, the artistic style of the illustration looks like a cartoon and a painting. This style is very realistic because of the situation portrayed on the cover; yet playful at the same time because of its comical vibe. The cover also looks three-dimensional and the author seems to be using a straightforward perspective of art. This idea is led be true because the child, wall, and table with the fishbowl are all facing towards the reader. The title is also as large in font as the child and fish bowl are. This shows that the cover is relatively proportional in both text and pictures.

The author uses imagery to describe the setting of the story and how it influences the story.The example that shows this "...hundreds of middle-school children entering a national art contest drew M-16s and beheaded corpses...".This quote shows how violent the environment that Pascal was living in was.It showcases how it influenced the future of the society because the children are supposed to be the future of the country with them being already like that and picturing such horrific images will result in them being a part of a gang and bringing those horrific images to life because they will become criminals that's what they have been exposed to as a
