Longer essays may also contain an introductory page that defines words and phrases of the essay's topic. Most academic institutions require that all substantial facts, quotations, and other porting material in an essay be referenced in a bibliography or works cited page at the end of the text. This scholarly convention helps others (whether teachers or fellow scholars) to understand the basis of facts and quotations the author uses to support the essay's argument and helps readers evaluate to what extent the argument is supported by evidence, and to evaluate the quality of that evidence. The academic essay tests the student's ability to present their thoughts in an organized way and is designed to test their intellectual capabilities.
Apparently, Ophie, Madison’s mom, found this funny the first couple of times, but not so much the rest. We started by just making it misplaced completely. We called ourselves the, “Every day’s April Fool’s Day!” people. Ophie walked out to get the mail and had a strange feeling that something was wrong, and she was definitely right because she burst out laughing when she saw the frenzied tree face. Trust me, it looked way funnier than it sounds. The second time around, she went to go tell Madison’s brother, Joshua, to stop hanging on the basketball hoop and noticed our giggly faces. She went over to tree and shook her head, placing the face back as it was supposed to be. The next time didn’t go so well because Ophie came over to us and sternly let us know to stop, in a way that made it clear that the behavior was funny the first two times, but was no longer so. “Okay?” she asked. We nodded agreement.
The book doesn't specify if the monster was created by one man or several or how he was brought to life. I think we can safely guess that the monster was brought to life using electricity because it has such an influence on Victor. SPOILER ALERT. I would also say that is safe to say that the monster was probably created using more than one man because later on Victor tears apart/destroys the monster's companion before he completes her creation. These are just my thoughts and if anyone has anything else they would like to add please comment
