    Hi Long,
    I want to add the rhetorical devices which are used in item 1:
    Metaphor: -The crane: human
    -The frog: obstacles

    Generally, your items that you chose are suitable and included many deep meanings, and the messages that you realized from that are very good. The sources are cited clearly.
    However, in my opinion, you should find out some clues in the cartoons that help you understand their implications. what’s more important is that you did not show the rhetorical devices in both two cartoons and also in the story.
    In terms of the appearance of the ITEM 3, you should focus more on the font, some mistakes in spelling and punctuation.
    Moreover, in the ITEM 3, I think it has more one implication, that is sometimes, we mistake our real risk and the real danger in the life, especially when we are not mature enough – like the little mouse, and just get the first step into the outside world – a very complicated society with many kinds of people that we have not known before. So let be carefully and keep a clear-sighted mind!

    i think in item 3, you can add that the crime usually hide behind the beautiful cover and innocent people often be deceived by this affected appearance.

    From my perspective, your cartoon and stories are interesting and meaningful, and I agree with all messages you have spotlighted. However, you should point out your analysis of rhetorical devices used in the cartoon and stories. For example, in the cartoon, the rhetorical device is metaphor: the stork – dangerous and difficult situations which can make us discouraged and withdraw, the frog – people who are always willing to encounter difficult situations and never have the idea of giving up. Actually, if you do that, your entry must be more convincing.

    I agree with the massages you gave, but you should leave your comments on rhetorical devices.
    In my opinion, the item 1 use the antithesis because as you see in the picture, the pelican try to swallow the frog, however, the frog do not give up and try to fight with the pelican. He has no choice to live except for strangling the pelican
    The item 3 use oxymoron because the words the little mouse said are contradictory with the meanings

    I agree with you the messages you pointe out. However, I think the second one also give the message which is the cruel action of the French colony to the Vietnamese. And the rhetorical device for the first one should be metaphor.
