There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it. His parents called him Eustace Clarence, and he masters called him Scrubb. I can't tell you how his friends spoke to him for he had none. He didn't call his Father and Mother "Father" and "Mother", but Harold and Alberta. They were very up-to-date and advanced people. They were vegitarians, non-smokers and tee-totalers, and wore a special kind of underclothes. In their house there was very little furniture and very few clothes on beds and the windows were always open. (bold mine)
My question is, were Eustices parents Mormon? I mean he seems to be describing the Word of Wisdom, and the wearing of garments. If indeed he was describing Mormons, then I wonder if he was making a statement about Mormons in general. Eustice isn't a very pleasant or smart boy at all. He is a book worm with no imagination and no friends.
I would love to know more about what he thought of the church.
