I really like how the vocabulary used in this essay actually makes you feel like you’re there. For example, the line “a wad of sweaty cash,” makes me feel like i can actually touch crumpled up dollar bills. My favorite part about this essay is the comic relief. In my opinion, if it’s funny, its a good essay. I also love going to the zoo and this essay reminded me of many fun trips.
This was a great essay. It kept me interested and wanting to read more. I could really imagine what was going on and picture everything because of the descriptions given. My favorite was how he felt like a spaceman and how he described what most kids probably feel on their first trip to the zoo.
