The June theme for Six for Sunday, hosted by A Little But a Lot, is Bookish Wishes and today’s wish is for: Characters who deserve another/their own book. This was quite a tricky one for me as a lot of the characters I love have, or are getting, sequels.
These are the ones who I would love to read about again or follow other characters in the story, which I’m not aware of having/getting sequels:
Tess de Sousa in The Star-Spun Web by Sinead O’Hart: Tess’s adventure to a parallel universe with the star-spinner was engrossing. I’d love her to go to other universes as she takes on Mr Cleat and Mrs Thistleton again!
Pog in Pog Padraig Kenny: I would love to go on another adventure with Pog, perhaps as he helps some other children, saves the world from monsters again, or to learn more about his backstory.
The sheep dog in I, Cosmo by Carlie Sorosiak: whilst I adored Cosmo, I’d really like to know more about the sheepdog’s story, told from his viewpoint.
Bron or Ylva in She Wolf by Dan Smith: I’d love to know about the adventures of Cathryn and Bron, perhaps from Bron’s perspective, before they meet Ylva, or follow Ylva beyond the end of the story as I’m sure there’s more fierceness to come as she fights for justice.
Emmeline and Thing in The Eye of the North by Sinead O’Hart: Emmeline and Thing are such fantastic characters that I’m sure they could go on a mission to save the world from another villain bent on world domination!
Eska, Flint and Blu in Sky Song by Abi Elphinstone: another adventure with Eska, Flint and Blu in the wonderful snowy kingdom of Erkenwald as it comes under threat once again would be fantastic.
