In poking around on the Internet in search of questions or ideas for questions about this book, I’ve noticed the question “Who is your favorite character?” is often asked. The answer, overwhelmingly, is Scatty. I’ve already acknowledged that she was my favorite character, too.
What is it about Scatty that we all like so much, and what does it mean when a favorite character is a secondary character?
I’m really curious about this, so I’m not going to offer my opinion first. Can you think of other stories where a secondary character is the most popular?
Think hard, please. I really want to know.
