Mrs Jenkins

Character Analysis

Bruno's mom is not a very interesting character. All we know about Mrs Jenkins is that she knits mustard-colored things (16.15) and that she's scared of mice (20.20). Having her as a character, though, rounds out the Jenkins family into a so-called typical nuclear family with mom, dad, and child, once again setting up the contrast against our narrator's less typical, but much more loving family.
