BC: I choose the literary term personification because the story gives the mice human qualities to be able to talk to Cinderella and make the dress. In the real story more than just the mice have human characteristics. The carridge that Cinderella's fairy godmother gives her is really a pumpkin but it was able to drive Cinderella.

25: My 2 Literary Terms Are Theme and Personification
26: I choose the literary term theme because the theme of the story told my way and the theme of the real story are about the same. I wanted to try and give the story a little twist by changing the names of the characters and relating it to my life. The movie with Lizzie McGuire as Cinderella is told very differently. It focuses on Cinderella finding more tjan just her true love.
