That is my favorite character because she is me she acts like me and she is is a younger sibling and I am a younger sibling. She is also mean to her older sister and I am mean to my younger brother.

  2. My favorite character is August form Wonder. He is one of my favorite characters because of his story. He was born with a deformed face and had never gone to a public school until he entered the fifth grade. He had a hard time finding new friends until he met Summer and Jack. Wonder is a really inspiring book and it focuses on other peoples points of view and August finding his way through life.

  3. My favorite character is Albus Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series. The books are my favorite series, my mom's favorite, and my brother's favorite. I think that they are creative and exciting and have real world problems. Albus is the headmaster at Hogwarts and he knows about every thing that is happening. He's kind and loves the kids and puts a stop to every bad thing happening at Hogwarts with Harry's help.

  4. My favorite charcacter in a book is Shawn Johnson (it is her auto-biography). The title of the book is winning balance and it is all about her life in gymnastics career but that career ended when she went skiing and tore her knee muscle. She was in the Beijing Olympics for Gymnastics and was only around 15 years old and that was pretty amazing! It all started off when she was little, she would jump on things and make her own trampolines like with couches so her mom enrolled her in a gymnastics program with a maqn named Chow.Chow taught her so much and soon she was competing at the age of 7. She got better and better and soon she went to the best gymnastics camp in the world then she got chosen to go to the Beijing Olympics. After the Olympics she didn't do gymnastics regularly and went skiing with her friend.Normally gymnasts are not supposed to go skiing but she did and tore a muscle in her leg. Then she couldn't do gymnastics again. Shawn Johnson is a big part of my life because I look up to her for gymnastics tips and so I would call her my Idol!!!! ~Natalie Stevens

  5. My favorite character is Drummer Hoff, from the book Drummer Hoff Fired It Off. This is a children's book that my dad would read to me when I was little. MY aunt bought it for me, and it was also my uncle's favorite book. Drummer Hoff has many other people in the Revolutionary War army with him. Sergeant Bammer brought the rammer. Major Scott brought the shot, General Border gave the order, but Drummer Hoff fires the cannon himself, even though he is the least of all the military men. I was three when I got this book, and I memorized it because it was read to me so much. I loved the pictures of Drummer Hoff and his awesome military cannon and uniform. Jimmy

  6. My favorite book characters are Calvin and Hobbs. Hobbs is Calvin's stuffed animal that he imagines is real. The first time I read the book was when I was in third grade and I couldn't put it down! I think the author is so funny. Calvin and Hobbs fight over everything. Like when they always play football they always argue about who hikes the ball cause neither of them like to hike. They have a special football start out when Calvin hikes the ball he calls a timeout and then he walks to the other side of the other team and then he calls time in and runs to the touchdown. I think the author should write another Calvin and Hobbs book because all of the books are so old.

  7. My favorite character is Ida May from the “Friends For Keeps” series. My favorite book from the series is called “My New Best Friend.” Ida is my favorite character because of how she lets her mind wander in so many ways that I wouldn’t think of. The author also shows her personality more through her thoughts instead of her words. One time when she was thinking to herself and talking to her sock monkey about getting a cat, her mind wandered and she ended up thinking about a banana. The story is about how she and her new best friend, Stacey, find what they think is a magical nightlight. They start to play with the nightlight and they use the ‘magic’ in the nightlight to bend the truth in negative ways. In the end, they get in trouble for dying a bully’s hair green and skipping class. They laugh about how much magic they thought was in the nightlight and never did anything like that again. I really recommend this series of books to any of my friends.

    My favorite character is Katniss. She is from the Hungar Games. She is my favorite character because she is brave and she is very caring she thinks of others and not just herself. She has a sister named Primrose, but they call her Prim. Prim gets picked to compete as the girl in the Hungar games. Katniss doesn't let her though because she thinks that she is to young so she volunteers to take her spot. Everybody didn't really want her to so they didn't clap neither did Prim. Prim was kicking and screaming because she didn't want Katniss to get hurt. The boy that gets picked for the Hungar games is Peeta. Katniss knows Peeta from somewhere. She knows him because he helps his father and mother at the bakery. Peeta is the one who gave Katniss burnt bread because his mother doesn't like him giving food away for free when she is around so he did it when she went inside. Katniss and her family couldn't care for theirselves because her mother was in a type of stage where she didn't want to do anything but lay in bed she wouldn't even get up to eat anything. So Katniss had to take care of Prim all by herself. She is special because she can fight and hunt without anybody with her she can be trusted because she is honest.

  9. My favorite character is Chrissa Maxwell she is a American Girl. Chrissa has dark short brown hair. I got the book my aunt Eve gave me the doll Chrissa. Her and her brother move with their grandmother. I like her because she was going to a new school called Edgewater Elementary and there are three girls that bully her very badly. She tries to be nice to them but they keep bullying her. It was a few days before valentines day. Chrissa makes valentines for everyone. When she went to school they passed them around when she came back to her seat she did not get any thing. It was because the mean girls took them. The meanest Gwen gave her a card that said
    “roses are red,violets are blue, you are the loser girl and no one likes you HA HA -not kidding!” So at the end two of the mean girls become her friends. Gwen does not stop being mean to them they just ignore her. That is why I like this book and her.

    My favorite book is A Dog's Life. And there are two dogs in it. Bone and his little sister are my favorite characters in the book. Bone and his little sister are dogs and they like to go on adventures with the yellow man. It's because ever since they hired a gardener/hunter to protect their yard, because there was a fox, which was the mothers friend, the mother then got shot because the hunter thought the mother was a fox. The yellow man heard that gunshot every single morning, so he decided to run away from home with Bone and his sister. Bone and his sister got lost along the way and they running through a field and came to a highway. On the highway, two people pulled over on the side of the road and they decided to adopt the dogs and rename them, but the dogs weren't potty trained, so they went to the bathroom all over the floor. They also puked in the back seat all the way home. They are my favorite characters because they go on so many adventures and it is really fun to read this book. My favorite part is that they are both sheep dogs and they are really cute when they are puppies.

  11. My favorite character is Skippyjon Jones. When I was little I loved to read with my Mom before I went to bed. He is a siamese cat who thinks he is a chihuahua. When he gets in trouble he goes to his room. Then he bounces on his head ;[, in his bed. Then he seems to wander into his closet and have a wierd adventure. He soon returns to his room and is forgiven for being bad. THE END!

    My favorite character is Greg Heffly. I would've put down the dragonborn but I didn't read that book. Greg is the main character in Diary Of A Wimpy Kid. He does very funny things and embarassing things. It's about trying to get through middle school. But It's not so easy. It's a pretty good book.

    My favorite character is Harry Potter. Why I like Harry is that he always saves the school from bad things or people. In the first book he fought and defeated prof. Qurill (Voledmort.) In the second book Harry fought the basilisk. Also that Harry always wins the Quiddich match's.
