Genre: Folktale- This story was a story within a story. There was a folktale within this story about the place that the boy was at so I decided that this was a folktale about that place. The story was that weird things happen at that place.
Plot: Person vs. Nature. Even though you don't know if the boy made up his story or not, the animals of the pond and town continued to terrorize the boy in order to get a piece of his one million fish. ( )

Children love this story & it is great to use a teaching tool in the classroom. You can teach exaggeration or in math the idea of anytime you multiply by 10 you just add a zero, anytime you add by 100 you add two zeros, etc, etc. ( )
