It’s a Book

Monkey is trying to read his book, but the donkey won’t leave him alone. He keeps asking questions like how to scroll down or if you can blog with it. Can’t the donkey just understand that “It’s a book!”

Visual Element: Color. The whole story has colors that create a very calm and casual setting

Evaluative Criteria: Cultural Markers. We notice a huge generation gap of paper books and technology between our two main characters. Something I am glad hasn’t happened to a full extent yet, and yet, it feels a little close to home.
