    4.   On pages 67–69, Christopher goes into the garden and contemplates the importance of description in the book he is
         writing. His teacher Siobhan told him “the idea of a book was to describe things using words so that people could read
         them and make a picture in their own head” [p. 67]. What is the effect of reading Christopher’s extended description,
         which begins, “I decided to do a description of the garden” and ends “Then I went inside and fed Toby”? How does this
         passage relate to a quote Christopher likes from The Hound of the Baskervilles: “The world is full of obvious things which
         nobody by chance ever observes” [p. 73]?
