Who is Mrs. Toquet?



Widow Sonder:
Isn't she the crazy old woman who lives in the woods, she's harmless but she steals.

They say she was once a grand lady and lived on the hill. But she took to reading books and went from bad to worse, stuffed her head with full of ideas, and now she's a bit addled.



Serafina:
A bit addled? Oh, Mother! She's as crazy as a cockroach.
