Two charecters in the story, Last Cover, are Colin and Bandit. Collin is a determined, twelve year old, artistic boy with a pet fox named Bandit. Bandit is a red fox with a bad reputation.
Bandit:Bandit is a red fox and is a pet of Colin's.Known for his bad reputation, Bandit is a food theif. He also killed chickens, ducks, young chicks and was feeding on eggs whenever he could. When Colin and Stan found him in the woods, Bandit looked at them as if he stil cares about them. Because of the hunters, Bandit finds a hiding place in the woods near a stream. To hide his tracks, he would wak upstream and in the water and then he would turn downstream.
I think Colin is a determined little boy who is special and delicate. I think Bandit is a nuisence in the town but, he is very caring. I feel like I can relate to this story because I have lost a few important things in my lifetime, including five of my cats. I have also lost a few other pets. I reacted just like Colin and Stan did, which was sad.
Colin:Colin is a twelve year old special boy who spends a lot of time drawing and doing artistic projects. In the story, Colin's pet, Bandit, escapes causing him to become sad. However, Colin soon sees Bandit in the woods and becomes excited. He says to his brother, Stan, "We haven't really lost him, Stan. When he gets through with his spring sparking he may come back. But we've got to show ourselves to him a lot, so he won't forget." Colin then asked his brother to not tell his father about any of this, and he agrees. So, Colin continues spending time with his pet at his secret place for a while, until Bandit gets killed by a hunter.
"We haven't reallly lost him, Stan"
