It's October and Halloween will soon be here.
Let's make a list of scary children's characters.
Penguin took a poll and at the top of their list of scary characters was the White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia. I hate to admit it, but I've never read the book, so I'll take their word for it.
How about these for scary characters:
- the Wild Things
- Cruella de Vil of 101 Dalmations
- the Big Bad Wolf of Little Red Riding Hood
- the Wicked Witch in Wizard of Oz
- the flying monkeys in Wizard of Oz
- the Witch in Hansel and Gretel
I know I've only scratched the surface. Add to my list and tell me your favorite scary children's characters.
