Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Margo, Pendergast, and D'Agosta discovered the Mbwun lily growing in the Reservoir. Their fear is suddenly magnified by this discovery. What causes their fear? What do they believe will happen, and how do they think this event will come to fruition?

Essay Topic 2

"Here there be monsters." Given the context of this statement, humans feared the unknown and unknowable since the beginning of time. Other than the obvious, how does this quote apply to this book. Look beyond the Wrinklers and cite examples from the text to support your explanation.

Essay Topic 3
