Today I want to know -- Who is your Favorite Main Character from a Diana Wynne Jones tale? Post on your blog or any social media site. Use the hashtag #dwjmarch and/or come back and leave a link here (or just comment here, of course).
Of course, this is a super difficult question for me to answer so I'm not sure why I'm expecting any of you to be able to answer it easily either.
Is it Wizard Derk (The Dark Lord of Derkholm)? I love his brilliant mind, his ability to nurture life in plants and animals, and his love for his wife and children (even the griffin ones).
Maybe Sophie (Howl's Moving Castle, Castle in the Air and House of Many Ways)? She's powerful, both within her magic and without. I love Howl but he is just such a slitherer.
Christopher Chant (The Lives of Christopher Chant and more) has his ups and downs. I definitely like him better as an adult. Okay, I adore him as an adult. But then now I'm thinking about Millie (also The Lives of Christopher Chant and more). She's rather amazing, isn't she?
And then there's Charmain Baker (House of Many Ways). She reads a lot and wants to be a librarian!
Who is your choice (or choices) for favorite main character?
