Road Trip Wednesday- These are the people in your neighborhood

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where we post a weekly writing- or reading-related question.

This week's question is: Which book character would you like most as a next door neighbor?

I want Ramona Quimby as my neighbor. Growing up I was totally into the Ramona books. I recently watched the movie Ramona and Beezus and was reminded how much fun Klickitat Street is. There's Ramona and Beezus and Howie and Willa Jean and Henry and his dog. This is a street I'd want to live on.

I would also like to live in the same building as Cornelia S. Englehart and her neighbor Virginia Somerset. From the book Cornelia and the Audacious Escapades of the Somerset Sisters. I would love to spend my days listening to Virginia talk about her world traveling adventures. Also I would totally volunteer to walk her dog, Mr. Kinyatta.

Great choice on Ramoma. And I'll have to check out the Cornelia book. It sounds fun.

I love how you picked Ramona partly based on her street :)

aw, man, i'd love to live on klickitat street. i haven't watched the movie yet--i grew up with the canadian miniseries, which i thought was a perfect adaptation of the books, and i'm not ready to accept someone besides sarah polley as ramona. :)

We tried to watch this with the kids the other night, but our AT&T TV was messing up. Frustrating!

Oh my goodness, RAMONA! I was obsessed with her when I was a kid. So many great adventures!

Neighbours with cute dogs are definitely the best sort :-)

I really need to read the Ramona books. I work at a children's bookshop, and people come in and ask for them all the time. They must be good!

Oh, Ramona would be awesome. We read her books aloud at night sometimes (even my boys like them:)
