A simile tries to make a vivid image in the mind of the
reader by comparing one thing to another.

Smilies can often be identified by the use of the words & 

Here are some example that we found in books. 

She had hands like baseball gloves.
The plane swoops like a bird.
The boy ate like a pig.
As happy
as a pig in mud.
As white as snow.
As cunning as a fox.
...was flying  like a swallow.

....moving around like an angry dolphin.
...leaping in the air like a trout on a fishing line. 
...sounded like bullets from a crazy gun.
