To analyse characters

In this lesson, we will explore the main characters in the text in more detail. Our main focus is on Miss Root, the new dentist, and the impression of her that we get as we read about her actions and the way in which the previous dentist died. For some people the violent death of the previous dentist will be a sensitive topic. If this applies to you, you may want to do the lesson with an adult. We will look closely at the author's choice of language and characterisation.
