It all starts off with someone knocking on Tom's door.
Tom Oakley Tom Oakley Tom is an old man with white hair and beard. He is described with a bit of a grumpy look. An old man who lives by himself with the company of his dog. He is lonely as his wife and child has been dead for a long time.
He is asked one day to take in Willie and give him shelter, since he has created a routin for himself he reluctantly accepted. Tom shows William around and He notices that Willie has bruises all over his body.
Tom grows suspicious and thinks that he gets abused by his mom back in London. Tom does not like abuse or violence and therefore he gets furious and says that he will never lay a hand on a child.
Tom is, in the beginning, a grumpy man but he develops through out the story to a caring and loving man. This is because of William the boy he is taking care of.
Everybody sees him as a grumpy man but deep inside he is a nice person, this is shown several times in the book but mostly when he is at the town meeting when the war starts see CHAPTER LOGS for more information.
His nice inside is revealed after a while with Willie because he has to be like a father to the boy. It is also the story about Tom and his wife and child that died which creates a special bond between Tom and Willie since they both can relate to each others problems.
I like Tom very much because of his generosity and kindness. I also like him because he is a very interesting individual and could not be left out of the book. But after every chapter you can clearly see that he gets to like Willie more and more. In the end of the book he travels in to London just to check up on Willie.
This shows that he clearly loves Willie. William is afraid of the dog at first because his mother has told him that they are very dangerous and that he should stay away from them. Willie Beech willie Beech William is a small boy with brown hair. He is a very quiet and shy boy so you do not see him laugh or smile a lot in the beginning of the book.
William is a very sad boy; he is tense and back-drawn. He was evacuated from London to the countryside, to a little village called Little Weirwold. He was taken in by Tom and taken care of. William is shy to begin with but grows fond of his host. William is the most important character in the book since he is the star of the book.
He is also the character in the book which creates all the problems and is in all the main events of the book. He changes the most through out the book and learns a lot from being evacuated to the small village.
He also creates the mystical effect by being a boy who knows very little about the world we are living in and trying to adapt to a new environment.Quotes for "Goodnight Mister Tom" By Michelle Magorian. The quotes that I plan to use for my Year 8 English Essay. STUDY. Goodnight Mister Tom Quotes.
