“What Shoes Would Your Main Character Wear?” by Joan Y. Edwards
Thank you, Jennifer Larson for your clever new picture book, “Lost Soles” in which Flip and Flop go on a trip to the beach to protect a little boy’s feet from the hot sand. On the way back to the car, Flip bounces out of the beach cart and is left behind. How sad! You’ll have to read it to find out if Flip and Flop get back together again.
This fun book brought me to the following questions for the characters in your stories:
What shoes would your main character wear?
Which shoes would your main character never wear?
Which shoes would lead your main character into the depths of danger?
Which shoes would lead them into a role of a hero or heroine?
Which shoes would your main character refuse to purchase because of the price?
Which shoes would your main character purchase because of the price?
Would your main character wear laces or Velcro?
Would your main character Nike, Reebok, or a nondescript name brand?
Which color shoes will your main character usually wear?
Which color shoes will your main character never wear?
Under what circumstances would your main character wear stilettos?
Under what circumstances would your main character wear hip boot?
Do your main character’s shoes make noises that add to the tone and suspense of the story? Tap, Stomp, Squeak?
Are your main character’s shoes like stealth bombers? So quiet you don’t hear the main character enter a scene?
Under what circumstances would your main character wear an old pair of shoes with holes in them?
Would your main character prefer to go barefooted and just decorate his or her foot?
I hope you enjoyed this walk through questions about your character and the shoes he would or wouldn’t wear. Please leave a comment telling me which shoes your favorite shoes or shoes you would never wear. Thanks for reading my blog.
