Favorite Literary Fathers/Father Figures

13fe69bfc7c9e0d71) Hans Hubermann – The Book Thief by Markus Zusak 

Liesel’s adoptive father Hans is the complete opposite of his wife Rosa, he is soft hearted and takes to Liesel straight away. He teaches Liesel how to read and write at night and opens her eyes to the world of books.


Arthur_Weasley2) Arthur Weasley – The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Arthur Weasley, Ron’s dad, successfully raised seven kids and never once treated Harry poorly. He was like the father Harry never had.

Since there are people out there who have never read Harry Potter (shocking, I know) I won’t put anything else about him. It’s been six years since I first read the series, and I don’t remember what is and what isn’t a spoiler.


brom3) Brom – Eragon by Christopher Paolini

After the death of his uncle, Eragon is raised by Brom. Brom teaches Eragon how to sword fight, use magic, and the ways of the Dragon Riders.

Sorry for using a picture from that movie abomination. I really wish they’d reboot the books into a TV show… 😦


tkam24) Atticus Finch – To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Not having Atticus on this list would be a crime.

Atticus is often described as a model parent. He is a wise, patient, and kind. He loves his children more than anything in the world and teaches Scout and Jem tolerance, courage and empathy, and tells them to be fair to everyone.
