One of the most interesting characters in _______________________, written by_____________ is _____________…
One of the most interesting characters in Holes, written by Louis Sachar, is Madam Zeroni. The author described her as having dark skin and a very wide mouth. When she looked at you, her eyes seemed to expand, and you felt like she was looking right through you. (29) She seems to be someone that you would want to stay away from at all cost. Although she doesn’t say much, she does communicate in the most profound and revealing way, making you question all that you do. Madame Zeroni is definitely an important character in Holes.
