Writing Prompt: Gifts for Fictional People
We're coming up on the best time of year . . . the time for presents! I'm sure you're busy buying presents for siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins (lions, tigers, and bears, oh my!). And they're all happily buying presents for you.
But, enough about that. I don't want to know what you're *really* buying for people (or should I say, buying for real people). Instead, I want to know what you'd get for those best friends of yours that live inside the pages of a book.
What presents would you get for the characters of your favorite books this holiday season?
I'll start with . . .
Jamie Kelly (from Dear Dumb Diary by Jim Benton)
Glitter pens to make her (dumb) diary sparkle
The Cullens (from The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer for ages 12 and up)
A baseball bat, because you've got to break a lot of bats when the balls you hit break the sound barrier
Hermione Granger (from Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling)
Books! (No explanation needed)
Now it's your turn. Leave your gift list in the comments!
