Who is your favourite literary character? With which literary character do you most relate? Which literary character would you most like to invite for tea/coffee? What would you ask him/her? What do you think you could teach him/her?
My favourite literary character is usually the one I’m currently reading, such is my fickle literary appreciation, so I would have a different favourite for each week, month and year of my life.
I relate to any character who displays honesty, a bit of sass and comopassion for others.
If I was to invite any character to morning tea, I think it would have to be Alice, as I appreciate the kind of party she gets invited to.
I’d wear my best hat and invite the most eccentric people I know and invite debate on a range of nonsensical topics and sit back and watch the fun.
I think I could teach Alice how to lighten up, to understand she has much to learn from others, even those who appear a little off kilter, if only she could stop her infernal questioning.
