One of my favorite book characters is Miggory Sow from "The Tale of Despereaux". Miggery is a slow-witted serving girl who harbors a simple, impossible wish to be a princess. Even though Miggery is a secondary character, her parts were the most interesting to read, especially because she overcomes so much hardship but doesn't really know it. She was sold into slavery and beaten by her master, but she always kept a positive attitude. She's a bit dim-witted, often dumbfounded with surprise by what happens to her. The author shows this by having her say, "Gor!!!" all of the time, which is just a nonsense sound. Even though Miggery isn't clever, agile, or attractive like many other book characters, she's lovable and admirable because of her determination to achieve her extremely unlikely dream of becoming a princess.
