fictional friendships

Through her whole life, Princess Morag has sought distraction, solace, companionship and pleasure through reading.  One of her favourite authors from adulthood has helped her to celebrate this particular penchant for fictional community.  Alexander McCall Smith says that it is a "pleasant club to be a member of" when we are "linked by our friendship with a group of fictional people".  So this post is dedicated to Princess Morag's favourite fictional people on the page:

  • Henrietta Hedgehog and the other animals of Greenglades Wood (Susannah Bradley)
  • the girls of the Chalet School (Elinor M Brent Dyer)
  • the inhabitants of Narnia (CS Lewis)
  • Anne of Green Gables (LM Montgomery)
  • Harry Potter and friends (JK Rowling)
  • the residents of Scotland Street (Alexander McCall Smith)

Please comment below with your favourites.... :)
