It means that in the very smallest people there are the biggest…

klumpy – … biggest what?

Comment by Miss Fowler

i think klumpy ment that the smallest people are the biggest thing over all. For example all the non-celebrity people like you, and me make the world a whole and are the biggest impact on everday life. I think the title means the same thing.

doplato – How are we, as average Americans, the biggest impact on everyday life?

Comment by Miss Fowler

I agree with klumpy, and also I think that it has something to do with Lennie’s upsession with mice.

Comment by kligsfosho

i think the title has to do with lenny’s love of mice

Comment by cghirohito

cghirohito- yes it could mean that and it could also mean what klumpy said. So put them together and it sounds pretty good.

Comment by epszczolkowski

The title shows how “small” men like Lennie and George can make a difference.

Comment by trayyd

i thought it was going to be a boring play book that is like in acting those role play type books but its not so its all good i think its interesting

Comment by mudisfun10

I agree with epszczolkowski, but I also think that the title pertains to how Lennie’s obsession of mice relates to how he can handle with people. How he acts towards mice and how he acts towards humans.

Comment by DavidO

I also thought it would be a playbook like previous books that we have read, but towards the title, I thought it would have something to do with mice, hah, I guess I was partially right..

Comment by busses

i think the title has to do with lennies mice that he loves so much.It says that his mice and that lennie and curly are men.

Comment by psgeiger

I thought that it meant that the men in the book lived dirty like mice???

Everyone – Keep thinking about this!

Comment by Miss Fowler

I thought the book wasn’t really going to be about mice at all, but it was a symbol for something else.

Comment by laurenxxs

I think that the title has to do with Lennie being so big but acting so smell like a mouse too.

Comment by knwilliam

I think that the title means that everyone has big dreams no matter what size.

Comment by nw61

I think that the title means that all people have dreams and there own opinion, no matter what they look like and what size they are.

Comment by jessnick1992

I thought this title ment that this book was going to be about some guys who have like problems with mice.

Comment by derrty

I thought the book was going to be about a guy whos best friend was a mouse.

Comment by fstarr

i think that the book would have more to do to do with mice rather than farming and the storiesat the bunk house.

Comment by ms07

how mice really relate to men

Comment by kkbruce

I think the title means that men have mice as pets or they work hard to get mice.
