Because everyone needs someone looking out for them!
We love sidekicks and besties in literature. They deserve so much more credit than they’re given. Being a protagonist’s best friend, confidant, or advisor plays a big part in revealing more about the lead character and we all know what wonderful support our besties are in real life. Is your ideal sidekick more of an outsider like Huckleberry Finn, or someone to help you think logically like Dr. Watson? Whoever your sidekick is, we’re sure they’ll stick by you!
You Got: Toto from ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ by L. Frank Baum
Toto is such a great sidekick. As a dog, he’s obviously extremely loyal and even travels with Dorothy to Oz! He’s really down for any adventure and is always there to keep you as safe as he can—he is a small terrier after all. Although Toto doesn’t talk until later books in the ‘Wizard of Oz,’ he’s still a great one to have around. Sidekick to: Dorothy Gale.
