Reading L.L. Samson

What would it be like to meet a character from a book you love? No, really. MEET the character. Have him hanging out with you. Eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and engaging in adventures. That would be pretty interesting/exciting/fantastic/terrifying. It all depends upon the character, right?

That is the premise for the new series by L.L. Samson, “The Enchanted Attic”. The first book has recently been released. “Facing the Hunchback of Notre Dame”  is a fun book. Great for summer reading. I would even recommend it as a family read (for those with kids who are a little bit older than mine).

I appreciated how L.L. obliged the reader to see Quasimodo as a human. With feelings. Not a dolt with an unfortunate spine. Kids need to witness the courage and kindness that is displayed in the character of “Quasi” in this book.

Tell me, if you could meet up with any fictional character, who would you choose? What would you do? Would you make him/her peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?

  1. I’d choose to meet Laura, the heroine of A White Bird Flying, by my favorite author, Bess Streeter Aldrich. Laura is the sort of girl I’d make PB&J’s with and we’d add a thermos of lemonade, take it down to the creek and have a picnic. We’d talk ’til the lemonade grew warm and the ants hauled off all the PB&J crumbs.

    Fun post!
