Tone is the author's attitude toward the subject matter he or she is writing about or toward the reader or audience.  There are many different words that you can use to describe an author's tone, doubtful, gleeful, serious, questioning.

Tone is conveyed through the author's word choice, the information included, & how the text is organized.

Tone is the author’s attitude toward the subject matter or toward the reader or audience. Words that could describe tone include doubtful, humorous, sarcastic, serious, and outraged. Tone is conveyed through the author’s word choices and the details that he or she includes. A text may have more than one tone.

HINT: Keep in mind that in a work of fiction, tone is the author’s attitude, and not necessarily the attitude of the story’s narrator. Ask yourself, “How does the author feel about what he or she is writing about?”
