Literary Characters A-Z! Help, please!

The Twirl and Swirl of Letters

The illustrations will be better than this, I swear.

I’m compiling an a-z list of literary characters. I want to illustrate it and make an alphabet book. Because this project combines three of my favorite things: Books, Illustration and Graphic Design. Any suggestions? I’m looking for mostly classic characters, book characters. I won’t use strictly movie or television characters, they need to have originated on the printed page.
