My middle son is in 1st grade and at his school, it's Character Parade Day-- which means the first graders get to dress up as a favorite character from a book and parade around the school. Of all the characters in beloved children's literature he could have chosen from, my kid chooses ... wait for it ... Darth frickin Vadar from one of his learning to read Star Wars books. I was like, "Give me a break. Don't you want to be the Cat in the Hat?" His answer was a look of abject horror.
Anyway, I'm about to dash out the door to go watch his march around the school grounds, but I thought I'd throw this out there-- what beloved character from a book would you dress up as if you had a choice?
For children's lit, I think definitely Anne of Green Gables-- who kicked serious butt, btw. From what I read today-- probably Lucinda, from Sunny's new series. She's such an awesome heroine. Otherwise, I'd say Eve Dallas, but then, I don't have the ass to fit in her jeans, so maybe not ...Happy almost Halloween!!!!!!!!!!!!!
