I also love the character of Dickon, in particular his intimacy with nature, and how their interaction with him contributes to the transformations in Mary and Colin. He can charm the wild animals - the foxes, squirrels and crows - but he can also charm people. Dickon helps to tame Mary and Colin's wild spirits by offering the love of friendship and introducing them to a relationship with nature and something to focus on outside of their self-centered lives. However, I think that it is also fun to watch Dickon develop relationships with other children of similar age and so I think that his friendship with Mary and Colin helps Dickon to grow too.
