Ten Childhood Characters Revisited
So, yeah, it's been over 25 years since I discovered the joys of reading. *feeling old* "What-If" I had an elementary school reunion, and by some fictional magic, literary characters could join the party? Here's who I'd invite:
Amelia Bedelia - She's the life of the party...well, and she might just ruin it by accident.
Fictional Laura Ingalls - After we reassured her that indoor toilets and computers are cool, I'm sure she'd fit right in.
Samantha Parkington (American Girl series) - Ditto for this chick. I'd also like to thank her for her influence on my dream of being a Victorian lady.
Ralph the Mouse - Somebody hide the cheese platter...
Arthur - Yeah, I guess DW could tag along too as the unofficial class mascot/little sister.
Corduroy - I hope that bear's fashion sense has improved.
Madeline - Cause she'd bring all the fancy French food.
Little Red Riding Hood - Maybe she has TomTom or GPS on her phone. Wouldn't want her to get lost.
Bastian and Atreyu (Neverending Story) - Cause ya'll know they were some of my first fictional crushes.
