Dido and Pa
Topic 5: In this story, an icon that can easily be connected with this, is multiple perspectives. Dido in this story is the shy one, but also is the one who wants to find Pa in the first place. This shows her perspective on the whole how far are you willing to go aspect of things. On the other hand, you have her friend Simon, who sees this as a trick or test for Dido to test his bravery in the woods with the incoming wolves. Now this is the perspective of the friend who is more brave, but it shows how crazy people can see an idea or adventure as. To sum it up, the two perspectives are an adventurous one, and a test one. Although Dido is the main character in the story, this doesn't always mean that he has to have the correct point of view. According to the article, it states, "Well upon my word, this a task that you want to test yourself in and I believe you don't actually want to find Pa." This shows Simon's point of view on the adventure. Another page in the book states, "Well I am blessed to seek the opportunity to find by beloved father in this life and death adventure." This shows Dido's point of view, and you can tell that he is being serious while saying life and death.

Dido and Pa
Topic #1: The main character in this story is Dido, a small child. She is important in the story, because the plot of the story is to find Didos mysterious father named Pa. This character is very grim and shy at times, for example in the book it states, “Poor little dear, may this be the last day on Earth!” This quote was significant at this point in the book, because another main antagonist are the wolves that are surrounding the forest of which Dido and her friend Simon must travel. I may also mention that this is a British child, almost at some points sounding like a mouse because of his dim voice. Towards the middle of the book, Dido begins to be more confident in himself and takes bigger risks, such as at one point getting up close with a wolf. As you can see, Dido at first was scared to even scream, but in the middle of the book it states, “Simon” she called softly. “Is that you?” This was an improvement of confidence for Dido and it showed her personality, the most out of anyone in the book.
