The past few days around Operation Blog we’ve been talking about the premise of the book I recommended on Friday, Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. I’ve asked everyone this question: Which character from a book or movie would you most like to meet for real?
Not everyone had an answer for me before it was time for this post, but Ringo knew right away that he’d like to meet Thing 1 and Thing 2 from The Cat in the Hat. I’m sure they would get along fine. Sometimes I think Ringo could be Thing 3, don’t you?
Dewey would like to meet Bagheera from the movie, The Jungle Book. He said, “Seeing as we’re both big and sleek and black, it’s almost as if we’re brothers.” I can’t quite picture a fat library cat having much in common with a jungle panther—but hey, whatever!
Who me? Oh, that’s easy. I want to meet Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, of course. I’ll let you figure out why.
So what about you? Which character from a book or movie would you most like to meet for real? Send me your answer in a comment. I’m dying to know!
