Dill says in the last quote that he is quite small for his age. Fun facts Dill is actually a real person in real life. Even though there are many other characters to choose from, the most obvious mockingbirds are Tom Robinson, Boo Radley, and Mrs. They also try countless times to try to see Boo Radley, which also engages their minds for the little time that they persist. In Dill's case, he believes that he should have fun. They also give him sufficient reason to want to return to Maycomb each summer. But in the second half the novel, Jem seems to have evolved immensely.

She would tell Scout that she would never hope to be a lady if she didn't wear a dress. Boo Radley is ostracized despite the fact that hardly anyone knows him. They also played with characteristics of Boo about what he looked like and other items of his body, making it a game about how gruesome they believe or they have heard he is. They think that he is insane. He felt he was unneeded. Dill is an adventurous, humorous, and diverse character. By this example he is also not racist.

They don't want him and he is passed from relative to relative in an attempt to be rid of him for some time. He has a crazy imagination and can make many things up. He is their teacher, their protector, and their friend. He is also important, as he is an outsider of Maycomb and so we can see Maycomb from a different point of view.

Strong Beliefs Dill is an outsider which means he perceives Maycomb County from a different point of view as to Scout's perspective. He flees because his mother has ignored him; cast aside. She was never bored, and given the slightest chance she would exercise her royal prerogative: she would arrange, advise, caution, and warn. The children act out stories that they have heard from school and other sources. They continued the friendship until his death. A positive trait that Dill possesses.

Dill also does not have the real attention he needs for his age for he is an orphan. She enjoyed the company of Jem and Scout, as long as they kept out of her azaleas. Although there are many characters in the novel, the mockingbirds that were the most obvious in the story were Tom Robinson, Boo Radley, and Mrs. He habitually pulls at a cowlick in the center of his forehead. So instead of telling the sad story of how his father left, he chose to spin fascinating, dramatized tales of his family. This shows how close Jam, Scout and Dill have become as they say that they will help him and let him stay for the night if it hadn't been for Atticus.
