Last night I was reading a biography of Mark Twain when I realized: Tom Sawyer has always been (in my mind) a kid just like Wesley. So… what literary character would the rest of my kids be? I went to sleep thinking about this, and pondered it some more today on the way home from the dentist. My verdict is…..
Judah – David Copperfield
Wesley – Tom Sawyer
Malin – Jo March (from Little Women)
Avery – Silas Marner’s daughter Eppie
