Read the following from Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets:

The above is an example of which literary term?

a. imagery
b. hyperbole
c. allusion
d. irony

Scroll down for the answer.

a. is incorrect; however, it is the best wrong answer. There is some description going on, but it lacks the detail that is normally thought of with imagery. If you picked this, don't feel bad, you are close.
b. is incorrect since the boy is actually telling the truth and not exaggerating at all.
c. is incorrect. There is no reference to anything in this picture.
d. is correct. The mom makes a comment to infer that she is not gullible, yet she is reading an impossible diet book showing that she is indeed very gullible.
