I've loved reading today's choices. And it's been great seeing people choose some of my favourites.
Here are a few more of mine who didn't quite make the short-list.
Mary Plain - A well-meaning bear cub who lived with her owner, the Owl Man and had all sorts of exciting adventures.
Olga da Polga - a guineapig with a penchant for telling some very tall tales.
Gobbolino the Witch's Cat - too kindhearted to be a witch's cat. All he wanted was a kitchen, some children to play with, and a fireplace to curl up in front of.
Boxer - the loyal, dependable horse from Animal Farm. It upsets me every time I read it.
