Maudie Atkinson

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.

Scout loves Miss Maudie because she treats her like an adult and tells her the truth. She also takes the time to explain things that Scout doesn't understand and enjoys spending time with the children. Miss Maudie is like extended family....
