I’ve heard a lot of theories about August but the one i liked the best (and im sorry i don’t know where i heard it) is that he is the writer of keeper of the book and he’s there to help Emma make everyone see the truth of what/who they are.
that’s probably about right. it makes sense, considering their banter by the Well in ‘What Happened to Frederick.’
So let’s say that is true. That August is lying about the lemurs. Why? Why would he do that? Does that mean he has never be out of town and is just pretending to be from out of town? Or is he trying to gauge Red’s reaction to that comment? Or are they just saying August is a liar and that’s it?
August, or maybe the writers, could also be really bad at geography.
