I (obviously) love children’s books. I’ve spent the last two years studying them, and I hope to write many of them. Right now, I’m focused on YA but I love middle grade stories and pictures books too. Still, it’s really fun to imagine what childhood characters would be like when they grow up. For some characters, like Harry Potter, Anne Shirely, and Meg Murray, we find out through sequels or epilogues. Others are mysteries. Here are ten childhood characters I’d love to see into adulthood.
Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme!

Eloise would be an amazing character to see as an adult. How I forgot that personality and sass, I don’t know. 🙂
I know. I wonder if she still lives in the Plaza!
I would best so! 🙂
Madeleine. Why didn’t I think about that plucky gal? What a fun meme this week. Thanks for sharing your fun choices. My TTT Children characters I’d like to meet as adults
I really wonder what Madeline would be like (obviously!).
I can’t believe that I’ve never read Eloise! I must change that at some point as I keep seeing the book pop up! I would love to know how Matilda is getting on with Miss Honey.
Some people don’t like Eloise because she’s so naughty, but I think the book is fun.
Matilda’s on my list too 🙂 Fudge and Ramona would also probably grow up to be very interesting people.
I would LOVE to see Fudge as an adult.
Oh Matilda is a good choice. 🙂
She seems to be popular today!
Oh I had Matilda in my TTT too! I loved that book growing up!!
I see a Marry, Date or Dump in there somewhere
I like to think that Eloise grew up to me Auntie Mame
I LOVE the idea of Eloise growing up into Auntie Mame. Amazing!
YES to Kitty! Absolutely! And I just read Madeline to my daughter (6 months old) last night. Good choices!

I’d really love for Judy Blume to just revisit all of her characters as adults! I still haven’t read All The Boys I’ve Loved Before but it’s been on my TBR forever so hopefully soon. Great List!
Ramona, for sure, would be fun to track as she grows up–especially how it changes her relationship to her sister.
Max would be interesting! I haven’t seen that pick yet today!
