Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Animals from Books. I did a TTT post this past November about great pets in fiction, so I may have some overlap here.
My top 10 animals from books:
- S.T. (crow) from Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton
- Rocinante (horse) from Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
- Crookshanks (cat) from Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
- Rollo (dog) from Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
- Adso (cat) from Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
- Rosie (elephant) from Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen
- The owls in Hoot by Carl Hiaassen
- The Adelie penguins in How the Penguins Saved Veronica by Hazel Prior
- Buck (dog) from The Call of the Wild by Jack London
- Carl (dog) from Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi (represented here by the dog flying a plane, in case you’re wondering…)
