~Guest Post by Adm Sidwell
Today, TSR would like to welcome Adam Sidwell to the blog to share his 10 favorite YA Characters! Enjoy!
The BFG: I love him because he's a big friendly giant and he talks such gobbleygook all the time. His language is fascinating.
Dumbledore: He's always got a plan, and he's one of those guys you can trust. He's the most powerful wizard!
Willy Wonka: He's smarter than he looks, and there's real sorrow inside his jovial heart. But he's created happiness anyway.
Grandpa Smedry from Alcatraz vs The Evil Librarians: He's an old crazy man, just like I'd like to be when I'm old enough to get away with it.
Arthur Dent: Sure, the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is not strictly MG or YA, but this guy is one cool frood. His buddy Zaphod is a little too crazy to take sides with, but Arthur is indeed sincere when he gets sucked out of the airlock.
The Giant Peach: It sounds so delicious.
Jacob Black: I know this is more teeny bopper YA, but this guy turns into a werewolf, and 3 people have independently told me I look like him. (I'm not sure which form they were talking about).
Tom Sawyer: He faked his own death just for the fun of it (like Tupac) and he always has schemes for getting himself out of (or into) a jam.
Butler: He's so loyal to Artemis Fowl, he has even given his life to save him on more than one occasion. Lucky for Artemis, he's a Jimminy Cricket to Artemis' tiny conscience.
Taran: The main character from the Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander. He's a boy who goes on a fantastic adventure in a fantasy world. My first real fantasy book. I'll never forget it.
