Fred

Character Analysis

Fred is Matilda's neighbor and friend, a boy about her own age. He's primarily important in Matilda because he has a parrot for a pet. Matilda borrows the parrot to play a prank on her family, and Fred is all too happy to loan it to her—once Matilda gives him her allowance in exchange, that is.
