Chapter 10 is about Tone. You know the expression, "It's not what you say, it is how you say it." Tone is an important part of composing. Katie Wood Ray says, "...tone refers to the overall blend and intensity of color, light, and shade in a picture, all of which evolve an emotional response."
She goes on to say, "When speaking, people use the tools of volume, pitch, gesture, and intonation to set the tone." Illustrators and writers must be able to set the tone visually.
Carl's Nose is a funny story of a dog who has a nose for the trouble. His village is at the base of an ominous mountain. The villagers rely on Carl to alert them when dangerous weather is coming. However, the weather become uncharacteristically clear and sunny and Carl seems to question his value to the community.
This book is filled with great illustrative techniques, so I added some "flashbacks" from previous chapters.
