It’s time to introduce the next great character from Aru Shah and the End of Time: Subala, or “Boo,” as Aru nicknames her pigeon mentor.
Boo is old—we’re talking thousands of years old—and crotchety, as people who’ve seen way too much can sometimes be. While he is dismissive of twelve-year-old Aru at first, he soon becomes fiercely loyal to her—and that makes him extra crotchety!
Look carefully at Boo’s handsome pose above and you’ll see that he has a human shadow . . . hmm, why would that be?
Meet Boo, everybody!
