Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Childhood Characters I'd Love to Revisit

Everyone is nostalgic about books they read as a child, what characters do you wish you could revisit as adults? For more Top Ten lists, visit

1. Ramona

I used to pretend Ramona Quimby was my best friend. I read all the books and Beverly Cleary sure knows how to make an 8 year old laugh! It would be fun to know if Ramona went to college, if she grew out of her awkward phases, etc. 

2. Junie B. Jones

What a character, right? She's loud, obnoxious and sweet in her own sort of way. This really kind of describes all kindergartners though. Did she ever become less disgusting? Is she still extremely violent? I hope so. 

3. Magic Tree House Kids

Oh my gosh, I love this series. Did the magic fade as the kids grew up? Did they become anthropologists? 

4. Brian from The Hatchet

I really like to think Brian became the scruffy yet attractive star of a survival show. 

5. Baudelaire family

The Baudelaire children all had great potential, if they were real, one of them would rule the world by now. 

6. Stanley Yelnats

We all know him and Zero became rich, but what did they spend all their money on? Was he able to live off of it for his whole life? Did he help other troubled youth? 

7. Island of the Blue Dolphins

I would love to know more about Karana. I also think it would be interesting to know how the story compares to the actual story of Juana Maria. 

8. Tuck Everlasting

Guys, this book was only alright. But I would love a modern remake, I think I might like that more. 


I just want another book. Not one that shows Stellaluna grown up, but just another adventure of hers as a baby bat.

10. From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

Surely living in a museum helps create pretty interesting adults. 


  1. Great List! I have read most of these and they make me want to go back and read again :) Happy Reading!

  2. Would be great to catch up with the Baudelaires as adults!

  3. This list is like a trip through my memory. I read most of these books as a kid. I’d love to reread some of them as an adult and see if my opinions have changed.
