Alice and Elizabeth

Here are Alice (Alice in Wonderland of course!) and Elizabeth (Bennett, Pride and Prejudice), two of the literary heroine silhouette pictures I made. I put them in little frames so that I can group them together on the wall. I'm pleased with the way they turned out. Behind each silhouette is text from the first page of the novel and below a quote from the heroine. Alice's reads Curiouser and curiouser, and Elizabeth's I am the happiest creature in the world. I think I shall make a start on Pippi Longstocking next. Who do you think I should include? Any ideas?

Ooh, I love them. I was going to suggest Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz; but now I'm thinking more along the lines of Wendy from Peter Pan. Oh, I always wanted to be Wendy! :)
