I need help with one question I've been given.
I've been asked to write about the roles of the little'ns and Piggy during an assembly in chapter six. I'm assuming it's the part at page 125 - 126 (in my book) where the boys are debating wether to venture up the mountain or not. Piggy stays behind to look after the little'ns whilst the other boys go up the mountain, but what roles are the Little'ns and Piggy playing? Is Piggy playing the role of a mother looking after children?
I just wanted to double check before getting it wrong, thank you for any help!
