Feature and Follow - Favorite Fictional Mom

 8474595901 873f4993f4 Feature & Follow #137

This is a tough one for me - most of my favorite books featuring youthful protagonists have missing mothers - To Kill a Mockingbird, Treasure Island, Oliver Twist, for example.

Mrs. Weasley is a good choice as she has many of the classical good features of a mother - caring, interested, multi-faceted. However, I didn't read all the books - just saw the movies.

A "left-field" choice is Mrs. Quimby from the popular Ramona series by Bevely Cleary.

Looking forward to reading your choices and your comments on mine!

  3. Top pick so far is Mrs. Weasley! I don't have one in particular as they vary from book to book. An awesome mom is an awesome mom. :)
