    In the book Neville by Norton Juster, Neville moves to a new





    In the book Neville by Norton Juster, Neville moves to a new town and thinks nothing will come his way. His thoughts are shown
    throughout the book using a third-person narrator. Neville, the protagonist, soon discovers that everything comes his way. In
    the book written for young students, Neville runs away and starts calling his name. The kids in his neighborhood start replying to
    Neville and yell his name back to him. Although the kids don’t  know who Neville is, they are dying to meet him. They are wondering
    what he is like. Thousands of questions are rushing through their minds about  Neville. Neville is so happy once everything turns his
    way in new town. 
      Neville changes throughout the story, from being the new kid and feeling left out   to feeling welcome. Neville feels left out in the
    beginning and decides to run away. He thinks that his mom doesn't care because he had no choice about moving. He has a sarcastic
    attitude about everything. He thinks all the kids  in his new town will hate him. He imagines his new teacher telling all of his new
    classmates this:“ Now, class, here is the new boy I told you about, he comes from the South Pole, and you can all make fun of him as
    much as you want.” This is why he thinks all of the new kids will hate him. In the end all of the kids love him and people are crowding
    around him to meet him. 
    G. Brian Karas is the illustrator in the book Neville. He used mixed media for the pictures in the book, and it looks like colored pencils.
    In  the first illustration it describes a lot in just the picture, Neville looks sad and disappointed.You can see the big gray moving van
    pulling away from neville’s new home leaving him and all the stuff. 
     Neville is great book for all ages.The author and illustrator work together to show the details showing whether the character is happy
    or sad. An example is when Neville’s mom is talking about friendship. “‘Maybe you’d like to take a little walk down the block. You might
    even meet someone.’  ‘ Yeah sure,’ he mumbled, ‘like you can make new friends just by walking down the block.’” The illustrator shows
     the expression in the characters, Neville looks sad and put down a lot. It is the van pulling away that makes him feel sad and put down.
     And the mom looks worried. Neville’s face makes his new house look bad and look like a dump.This is a wonderful book that is fun to
    read and exciting to everybody.
