Of Mice and Men

Slowly, like a terrier who doesn't want to bring a ball to its master, Lennie approached.

Writers use figurative language (metaphor, simile, personification, hyperbole) to describe things in fresh, new ways. For each passage from the novel, tell which type of figurative language it contains and explain what the figure of speech describes or means.

This would be a simile; Lennie is almost like a puppy (which would translate to child-like) in his innocence.
