“Tuck Everlasting” Metaphors, Similes, and a Hyperbole

Hi viewers! In humanities class, we have been reading a brilliant book called “Tuck Everlasting”. Ms. Nall asked us to find 2 metaphors, 2 similes, and a hyperbole (From chapters 1-13). So here are mine below:

  • Simile: “Jesse sang funny old songs in a loud voice and swung like a monkey from the branches of trees…”
  • Simile: “…a bag of cotton batting with wisps of its contents, like snow, drifting into cracks and corners…”
  • Metaphor: “And Winnie, looking down, saw hosts of tiny insects skittering and skating on the surface.”
  • Metaphor: “…Winnie, looking back into his face, saw an expression there that made her feel like an unexpected present, wrapped in pretty paper and tied with ribbons…”
  • Hyperbole: “Afterward, when she thought about it, it seemed to Winnie that the next few minutes were only a blur.”

Ashley,
Your second metaphor example uses “like,” making it a simile, not a metaphor. 8/10
