Mr. Big’s Plan

In this clip, Mr. Big says that the city is “like a soft little bunny” that he can squeeze. When you compare things using the words like or as, you are using a simile! Similes are used to show how two things that are not usually alike are similar in one way. Similes are used to make writing more descriptive. Good writers use similes to make their writing more exciting and interesting!
