Major characters: Dad, mom (Hellen), the son. Minor characters: uncle Burt, his brothers. Plot/problem: A house wife has freaked out by the sound of crickets in their cellar.

      The text under analysis is a short story, a true-life boy’s story. The general atmosphere of the text is ironical and moralizing. The title of the text is “The Cricket War” judging by it we can guess that the matter is about insects and the fight against them. A kind old man (a magician?) offers the boy the chance to save his family by changing himself into a fighting cricket. His adventures as a cricket, his escape, and his return to human form are retold here, with a note at the end of the book referencing the original ancient tale/5(5).
