Ten of the Best Children's Fiction Heroes

Guardian

Think back to your favorite childhood books. Was there one hero in particular you looked up to one that stays with you even now? Or is there a new favorite your child has introduced you to? The Guardian recently compiled a list of ten of the best heroes from children's fiction -- is your favorite included?

With so many wonderful and memorable characters out there, it's difficult to imagine how they have whittled the list down to these ten. Included on the list is: Pippi Longstocking, Anne Shirley, Matilda Wormwood and Huck Finn.

Who do you think should have made the list?
