1: This scrapbook is dedicated to Lois Lowry, the woman who wrote this book.
2: THE PLOT The plot of this book is Littlest One on a journey with her mentor, Thin Elderly, to become a dreamgiver. | EXPOSITION In the exposition of the story, Fastidious is training Littlest One to become a dreamgiver. The setting is at an old woman's house. | CONFLICT The conflict of this story is the between the peaceful Dreamgivers and the evil sinisteeds. | CLIMAX The climax of the story is Littlest One saving John from the Horde. | RESOLUTION The resolution of the story is Littlest One becoming Gossamer and New Littlest wanting to become a dreamgiver.
3: CHARACTERS | Littlest One- a young dreamgiver who is learning how to give dreams. She is curious and kindhearted because she helps people have good dreams whether they're good or bad. | Thin Eldery- Littlest One's mentor. He is very patient and trustworthy, such as when Littlest One bestowed her first dream. | Old woman- A patient elderly citizen who is very loving and caring, like when she took John under her arms. She also has a dog named Toby, who she bonds with well. | John-8 year old who is always very angry and stressed and often asks unusual questions, such as when he started asking the old woman how the man in the picture died.
4: CHARACTER MOTIVES | Littlest One's motive is to be a good dreamgiver. This motive is supported by actions made by Littlest One, such as when she gave the mean John a good dream. | John's motives are caused by the abuse suffered at the hands of his father, which explains why he is mean to nearly everyone, such as the old woman. | Old Woman's motives are caused by her being loving and understanding, and for being John's surrogate mother. | Thin Elderly's motives are caused by his dedication to teaching the ways of dreamgiving. He is so dedicated he even lets Littlest One touch a living creature, which is forbidden by dreamgiver standards.
5: THEME | I think the theme of this story is to always be patient and never give up on someone or something. Details that support this statement include the fact that even though John irritated the old woman, she still put up with him, and that even though Littlest One wanted things done very fast, Thin Elderly was able to help her learn at a steady pace.
6: POINT OF VIEW | I think this story is told in third person, or by someone witnessing but not involved in the story. I think this is supported by the fact that the narrator never once mentions his or her self being involved, and that he or she never mentions being at any of the places in which the story takes place or acknowledges knowing any of the characters.
7: EXTERNAL-INTERNAL CONFLICT | An example of internal conflict in this book is John's mom trying to put her past past behind her. This is an internal conflict because it is happening in the character's mind. | An example of external conflict in this book is the war between the Sinisteeds and the Dreamgivers. This is an external conflict because it is actually happening in the book's reality.
