Cabbage comment

by lauraluluk, July 03, 2017

I just wanted to point out that on here it says the grandmother compares the children's mother to a cabbage, when in reality it is the narrator, which is in third person. The exact quote is "Bailey didn't look up from his reading so she wheeled around then and faced the children's mother, young woman in slacks, whose face was as broad and innocent as a cabbage and was tied around with a green headkerchief that had two points on the top like a rabbit's ears." It is not the grandmother speaking or comparing anything to a cabbage.
