We're up to the point in the story where your hero character finally teaches the greedy character a lesson, and the pranker gets pranked on! To help us write the ending of our folk tale we're going to have a think about using similes.

 

Have a look at this clip for what similes are and how to use them; https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zmfc7ty/articles/zrrhpg8

 

They add a lot of description, especially to your characters, or the characters actions. Be careful you don't overuse them, two or three good ones will be just fine. Just to make sure you really are thinking creatively, I'm also placing a ban on the most common simile I see in our writing - "As quick as a flash!"
