Not a Desirable Parent
Have you ever seen a fearsome law-breaking parent? Well this is exactly who Edward

Night-time ​by Mark Haddon. In this book the main Character is a 15-year-old boy named
Christopher, who has a form of autism called Asperger's syndrome. Christopher’s father is
Edward Bonne and they live together. Edward Bonne is not an ideal single parent because he has
abused Christopher in the past. Moreover, he has also lied to Christopher several times about his
mother. Edward showed his anger and possessive nature by murdering a neighbor's innocent dog.
Edward is an abusive father and has abused Christopher before. “Father had never
grabbed hold of me like that before”(Haddon, Page 82). Edward gets mad at Christopher and he

Edward reveals to Christopher that he has murdered the neighbour’s dog called
