    I think that he is a very thoughtful person.One of my reasons is because when he shrank Mrs.Phillips he decided that it was unfair. So he felt guilty, and its because he felt guilty that he shrunk himself to, but thats not all he was also very thoughtful and when he shrunk himself he took lots of food with him. Another reason I say that William is very thoughtful was because he was very helpful to people, I think from what Sir Simon said,”be nice to your elders.” This also affected the story because the ‘elders’ gave him some very important information. All in all I think that William is very thoughtful.

    I think William is pretty thoughtful because he made himself small just to save Ms.Phillips. So he went with Sir Simon to get the other token back. And that is a big commitment! And also he helped that old man in the tree to turn him back to a young man. Some people don’t even stop by to help him. (One person did but he looked down and vanished. That is the reason I think he is thoughtful.

    Yes, William is a very thoughtful person because when he shrank himself he brought some supplies for Mrs. Phillips: A jar of marmite, bread, and some tea bags. He didn’t have to do that he chose to help his nanny and be a thoughtful person. When William shrank Mrs. Phillips she wouldn’t talk to him. William then chose to shrink himself to see and talk to Mrs. Phillips and to help her get to her normal size. That is being thoughtful because William does not want Mrs. Phillips to leave so he could just keep her like that and have her forever but instead he shrank himself to help Mrs. Phillips get back to England. That is why I think William is a thoughtful person.

    I think William is a thoughtful person because he wanted to see Ms.Phillips so he shrank himself for it, another reason I think he is thoughtful because he helped Sr.Simon find his way through the forest and he offered to help him defeat Alistor, he also climed up a very tall tree to get a delicious ripe apple for an old man but he only looked like that. That is why I think William is thoughtful person.

    Yes I believe that William is very thoughtful person because he is very nice to people and he keeps promises. He didn’t want Mrs.Phillips to leave because she was an important friend. Another example is that he gave Mrs.Phillips food to keep her alive. William will do anything for Mrs.Phillips because she stayed with him more than ten years.

    I think that William is a thoughtful person.Because William does not want Mrs.Phillips to leave. In addition when he shrinks her he shrinks himself.In the text it states that he shrinks himself with the token,( he sacrifices him self to make Mrs.Phillips to talk to him) it also states that he really does not want Mrs.Phillips to leave.

    I think William is a pretty kind guy. He is kind because at the beginning of the story, when Mrs. Phillips had told him the bad news that she was going back to England, he heard that, he said he wanted to stop her from going. Another reason that he is kind is when his dad had gave him things to buy from the grocery store, he biked there with his friend Jason. I think that he is kind because he helped Sir Simon with getting supplies that he needed to live and to take care of himself, and take care of Mrs. Phillips because she is now small.

    Yes. I think William is a thoughtful person because even though he shrank Mrs.Phillips, he did it because he didn’t want her to leave him. Also I think William is a thoughtful person because when Mrs.Phillips asked him to shrink himself, William did as he was told. Another reason that William is thoughtful is because he helped the Old man when everybody was ignoring the poor old man. Also at the very beginning William gave the picture back to Mrs.Phillips.

    In “Castle in the Attic” William appears to be a thoughtful some of the time, but not all the time. He is thoughtful because he cares about other people and helps people. He’s not thoughtful because he shrunk Mrs. Phillips so she can stay, but then, Mrs. Phillips didn’t say a word to William unless, if William would restore Mrs. Phillips to her normal size. So, she wanted William to be tiny also so he knows what it feels like to be tiny. Then, William realized he made a mistake and he was sorry. In conclusion, that is why William is thoughtful some of the time, but not all the time.

    I think William is a thoughtful person for 3 or 4 different reasons. One is when he was traveling, he gave people food and drinks like cheese, bread, and dark cider. Another one is, he is thoughtful by is how William hid Mrs.Phillips pin and picture since he did not want her to leave him or go to England. My last one is how he seems to want to help the world and help the community he lives in by trying to defeat Alastor.

  • Alan April 29, 2015 at 2:22 pm

    I think that he is a very thoughtful person because, when he shrank Mrs.Phillips he decided that it was unfair and that he shrunk her, and decided to shrink himself so that they would be the same size, and also to give her some food. Also, when he got shrunk he was very thoughtful and decided to bring some food because the Knight Sir Simon and Mrs.Phillips were running out of food. Another reason I say that Willam is very thoughtful is because he is very helpful to people; proof of this is what Sir Simon said:”be nice to your elders.” This also affected the story because the ‘elders’ gave him some very important information. All in all I think that Wililam is very thoughtful.

    I think that William is a thoughtful person. I believe that because he shrunk himself to go on a quest to help Sir Simon. Another reason why I think William is a thoughtful person is because he brought some marmite, tea bags, and bread to Mrs. Phillips as a peace offering because he wanted to apologies. He shrunk her so she would stay, which was a little selfish, but he also did it for Sir Simon. Sir Simon needed a companion, so William thought that she would be the perfect fit. Those are my reasons why William is thoughtful.

  • Ashley April 30, 2015 at 2:43 pm

    I think that William is a very thoughtful person for many reasons. The first reason I have is that William helps his friends do homework before and after school. Another reason I have is that William shrunk himself to help sir Simon do the quest. The last reason I have you may not agree with. William shrunk Mrs.Phillips because he wanted to be more thoughtful to Mrs.Phillips than he was before.

    I think William is a thoughtful person. I think he is because he knew he made a mistake by shrinking Mrs. Phillips
    and turned himself small just to save her and let her go into the real real world. Another reason he is a thoughtful
    person is because he helped the apple tree man brake Alastor’s spell. My second to last reason I think William is a thoughtful person is that after he shrunk Mrs. Phillips William brought Mrs. Phillips a gift and asked for forgiveness. My last reason I think William is a thoughtful person is that Sir Simon needed someone to battle Alastor with him
    because Alastor is to strong only for Sir Simon, and William accepted to risk himself for him. That is why I think
    William is a thoughtful person.

    I think that William is sometimes thoughtful. He isn’t thoughtful when he shrunk Mrs.Phillips and put her in the castle against her will and when William didn’t care Mrs.Phillips’s heath was going down. William is thoughtful when he shrinks himself to go help Mrs.Phillips and give her food. He also is thoughtful to his friend Jason by helping him do his homework. This is why I think William is sometimes thoughtful.
