Theme Thursday - Male Character - Raphael

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:
  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This week’s theme is yet another easy one. As much as I like challenging themes sometimes we just want a break… dont’ we?

Description of a man/boy…

My THURSDAY THEME for MALE PERSON (Description of a man/boy) is below. Dangerous Angels: The weetzie Bat Books (Paperback)Dangerous Angels: The weetzie Bat Books (Paperback) by Francesca Lia Block
"Not only did Raphael look like powdered chocolate, but he smelled like it, too,and his eyes reminded Witch Baby of Hershey's Kisses. His mother, Ping dressed him in bright red, green and yellow and twisted his hair into dreadlocks.("Cables to heaven" said his father, Valentine ,who had dreads too.) Raphael, the Chinese-Rasta parrot boy, loved to paint, and covered walls of his room with waterfalls, stars, rainbows, suns, moons, birds, flowers and fish."

Mine is from The Rose Without a Thorn, which is a book about Katherine Howard.
