Dill was a curiosity. He wore blue linen shorts that buttoned to his shirt, his hair was snow white and stuck to his head like duckfluff; he was a year my senior but I towered over him.

– Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird, Chapter 1. Dill, the new kid who had come to stay with his aunt for the summer in Maycomb, was unlike most boys that Scout had encountered. He had a vivid imagination, was sensitive and had a sense of style.
