I saw this challenge going around on Facebook, but it was for adults. (For the record, I am Norah from “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.”) It was fun to see everyone’s responses, so it made me wonder what it would look like in the world of children’s books.
Here are our family’s answers:
Bean, of “Ivy and Bean” for our six year old.
Jim Hawkins of “Treasure Island” for our seven year old
Glory, from “Glory Be” for our 10 year old.
And it’s been awhile, but Ender, from “Ender’s Game” for our 14 year old.
Looking at the list, they’re actually not a bad match for my crew.
So readers, into which main character has your child suddenly been transformed? (I hope you haven’t been reading” No! David!” lately.)
