The Best Character Ever
The absolute best character I have read so far in my class is an extremely brave boy named Jack. Jack is one of the main characters in the book, By The Great Horn Spoon. I like this guy’s personality and I have to admit, he doesn’t look too bad. But I like how much courage he has. Let me explain. Jack was going to California to help his Aunt Arabella keep her house. Jack was going to California in the Gold Rush. Jack was going to strike it rich. With that money, his Aunt Arabella’s house would not disappear from the Aunt’s grasp. He was very brave to do this, but his Aunt’s butler, Praiseworthy, went along with him. Together they encountered many dangers, but in the end, they struck it rich. Just saying, they struck it rich by selling cats. Praiseworthy and Jack were brave by getting the cats from an abandoned, rotting ship. That rotting ship used to be the ship that transported Jack, Praiseworthy, and many other people with gold fever to California. Jack was brave enough to take that ship because part of its route was around the vile Cape Horn!
Jack was brave when he encountered an outlaw, and faced him with his gun (and even braver, the kid was pointing a puny squirrel gun at the outlaw!). Plus right before that, Jack almost came face to face with a bear. On his way to California on a ship, Jack was brave enough to hide his pig friend from not only the butcher, but about the whole crew! Jack was brave, and a bit crazy, enough to take this journey to California in the first place. Think of all the hardships a miner could face. For an example, cholera and high prices await a miner in California. Fortunately, Jack was healthy about all the time in the California Gold Fields. Jack the brave boy, had no fears to go to California! Go courageous Jack!
