Dress Up as Your Favourite Character Day
It’s ‘Dress Up as Your Favourite Fictional Character Day’ at my eldest daughter’s elementary school this morning. She went as Lucy from the Narnia novels, specifically from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which she saw recently at the movies. Like me, she’s a big fan of C.S. Lewis. As we went into school, I saw an excellent Mad Hatter and the school librarian was the Wicked Witch of the West.
If adults had a ‘Dress Up as Your Favourite Fictional Character Day’, I would come as either Bigwig from Watership Down or Dr Who (Jon Pertwee incarnation) or Alan Breck from Kidnapped or Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird. My colleague Beth would come as either Anne of Green Gables or Enid from the graphic novel Ghost World. My fellow AbeBooks’ marketer Scott would come as Zaphod Beeblebrox from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
Who would you go as?
