Fear Theme

There's a lot to be afraid of in this book. We experience everything from mean, prejudiced kids throwing garbage at our protagonist to an earthquake ripping apart San Francisco. Dragonwings asks us: what do you do when you're scared of something? What does fear do?

Questions About Fear

  1. What are people scared of in Dragonwings?
  2. How do people react when they are scared?
  3. Why is Moon Shadow scared of Jack?
  4. Are the demons in general more afraid of the Tang people or the Tang people more afraid of the demons?
