Default I need help trying to remember a book title

Or, more accurately, a book character:

The only thing I remember about the book is a minor character who's nicknamed "The Honk" because of his large nose.

At first I thought it was in a Stephen King book, but a look the the wiki of his characters doesn't turn it up. A general search turns up a musical called Honk!; a Fraggle Rock episode; and The Honk and Holler Opening Soon. None of these are what I'm looking for. The character I'm recalling is human and might be a kid or teenager. The story possibly takes place in the 1950's. His nickname and the reason behind it are the only things I'm positive about, though.

He might even be a movie or TV character, although I'm pretty sure it's from a novel. It's also possible that my brain made it up, which would explain why I can't find it in a search.

Help?
