Miss Maudie is a  kind, cheerful, and witty neighbor and trusted friend of Scout's, who also upholds a strong moral code and helps the children gain perspective on the events surrounding the trial. She also loves gardening. She is not like the other women in town, as she doesn't indulge in gossip and takes time to care about and talk to the children. The children love her.
