I am working on questions from the book "To Kill a Mockingbird" and i need help with this question:

1. Using Jem's description of Boo, how does Harper Lee makes it clear that we are looking through a child's eyes?

  • English -

    How does Jem's description of Boo differ from the way an adult would describe him?

  • English -

    Jem's description is so exaggerated that it could not have possibly come from an adult. As I recall, Jem says that Boo goes around scaring people at night, and eats dead cats. No mature adult would say these things about a socially awkward individual.
