In Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, Jem harms Mrs. Dubose by destroying her camellias. In anger over something she said about Atticus, Jem destroys every flower or bud in her garden. Scout goes after Walter Cunningham, an unassuming youngster who inadvertently gets Scout in trouble when she tries to explain to her teacher why Walter will not accept charity.
