"The magic might die by the first of September, but now in late June there was still plenty of magic, and shoes like these could jump over trees and rivers and houses. And if you wanted, they could jump over fences and sidewalks and dogs."

1. What effect does the hyperbole in this excerpt have on the reader?

A. It helps people understand the attachment the boy feels to the shoes.

B. It helps the reader realize that everyone has a little magic in them.

C. It provides the reader with information about why summer is better than spring.

    How can you be so sure, might I ask?

  • Lang Arts - HELP! -

    You're right. I can't answer for all readers. But for this reader, it emphasizes that everyone has a little magic in them. I suspect that most readers would feel the same.

    In addition, the passage doesn't mention a boy, nor spring -- thus indicating that A and C are wrong.

    Ah, thank you for clearing that up. I have to agree with you on this one. Thanks again. :)

    You're very welcome. :-)

    I finished the quick check and the answer is A for anyone wondering.
