Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a Father’s Day freebie. I decided to go with some of the most memorable father’s in literature…so here goes!
- Mr Wormwood– Matilda– Roald Dahl- He’s an awful father. He doesn’t care about his wonderfully intelligent daughter!
- Lucius Malfoy– Harry Potter– J.K. Rowling- He encourages Draco to be unkind to others. He makes Draco think he’s far superior. I don’t like that!
- George Mole- Adrian Mole– Sue Townsend- George is hardly a role model to Adrian!
- Old Nick- Room– Emma Donoghue- Thinking of the character just makes my blood boil.
Now some memorable in a good way fathers!
- Otto Frank- The Diary of Anne Frank– Anne Frank- Without Otto, we wouldn’t have Anne’s diary.
- Hans Hubermann– The Book Thief– Markus Zusak- I featured Rosa in my mother list, so I couldn’t help but mention Hans too. He’s a super sweet father.
- Atticus Finch– To Kill A Mockingbird– Harper Lee- I couldn’t put together a list about fathers and not include Atticus. He’s super special. Kind, caring, respectful and he truly loves his children.
- Bob Cratchit– A Christmas Carol- Charles Dickens- He just wanted to do well by his family!
- Arthur Weasley– Harry Potter- J.K. Rowling- Loved his wife, mentioned his wife in my mothers list, so of course had to include him. A set of wonderful (present) parents!
- Carson Drew– Nancy Drew- Carolyn Keene- I loved reading about Nancy’s father when I was younger. I remember always thinking he sounded amazing!
