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 brokeandbookish.com
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.
