Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel of Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read! It's a great way to meet new blogger friends! (For the rules, click here)
The Follow Me Friday Question is:
Happy Father’s Day! Who is your favorite dad character in a book and why?
My favorite fictional father would have to be Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. He's the literary equivalent of Cliff Huxtable (The Cosby Show for everyone who wasn't a child of the 80's). Patient, wise, and willing to put the time in to mold a child/teen into a good person.
Favorite Dad from a Young Adult Book: A hard one because you rarely see a mom, never mind a dad. So, I would have to say Arthur Weasley from the Harry Potter series. Not only a great dad to the large Weasley clan, he also takes Harry under his wing.
