Who’s your favourite book character and why?

My favourite book character is Alice from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I like Alice because she is brave and wouldn’t give up when she drunk the “drink me” potion, and turned big then small. I also like the other characters in the book like: The White Rabbit, the Mad-Hatter and the Cheshire cat. I like Alice’s blue dress with the white apron. Her hair is blond with a black bow. She has white knee length socks with black shoes.
