Who would you be on World Book Day?

World Book Day
An alternative Sherlock Holmes
As you have probably heard on the news today (March 7) is World Book Day. As a result, children around the world are being invited to go to school dressed as their favourite characters from literature. 

I think you can probably see where we are going with here... The folk at Stone Junction Towers have decided that this is what we would have dressed as for World Book Day, had we been brave enough:

Oana Baetica, senior account executive - Mrs Havisham (Great Expectations): Avid readers will know that Dickens’s greatest spinster was jilted at the altar and spent her remaining days sitting in her drawing room wearing her wedding dress. Then she spontaneously combusted. What does this say about Oana? I will let you, the reader, decide.

Ashleigh McLeod – associate account executive – Ron Weasly (the Harry Potter novels): Harry’s best friend and Hermione’s future husband, Ron is a bespectacled and geeky young man for most of the novel. Ashleigh is, well, none of those things. But he is still her favourite and we should be allowed to express ourselves.

Boris Sedacca, editorial supervisor – Sherlock Holmes (the novels of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle): A deductive genius, brilliant musician and icon of the nineteenth century, Sherlock has been rendered countless times on film and television. The actors playing him have ranged from Benedict Cumberbatch to Peter Cook. Which one is Boris most like? Again, the decision is yours.

Richard Stone, managing director - Henry DeTamble (The Time Traveller’s Wife): Henry spends the majority of the novel appearing at random points in his partner’s life, surprising her by being a different age each time. The Time Traveller’s Wife is a chronologically confusing novel that was nevertheless an international bestseller. Richard is also chronologically confused – believing that he has recently turned 21, despite being nearly 37 and only able to match half of the attributes of a grey fox.

Who would you be, given half the chance? Answers on a postcard, by e-mail or in the comments box please.
