Elementary 'In Character': Bobby Pendragon

Nominated by Jacob, Isaac Dickson Elementary School, Asheville, N.C.
From the Pendragon series by D. J. MacHaler

Pendragon

Bobby Pendragon is a 15-year-old boy. He mysteriously finds out he's a traveler (a person who goes to different places in different galaxies). His home goes from Stony Brook, N.Y., to nowhere.

One of his traits is bravery because he will do anything — even if it is his worst fear — to help others. Another trait is brains because he always is strategizing to avoid fights (though half the time they don't work). My favorite trait of his is his humor because it makes me laugh.

I really like Bobby because he has a lot of positive characteristics about him. He will usually take suicidal risks for others, if needed. He is also helpful in saving his friends.

I think it would be good for other students because it shows you what life is like. It also helps you by showing you that things die.
