Hedwig listed in top ten animal companion list

Django Wexler, author of The Forbidden Library, has composed a list of the top ten best animal companions in children’s fiction.  Among those on the list was none other than our favorite snowy owl, Hedwig!

Also included in the list were Pantalaimon from His Dark Materials, Tock from The Phantom Tollbooth, and Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro. You can see who else made the list here.

Hedwig is one of the characters who resonates the most with Harry Potter fans. We all remember that moment Hagrid brought her to Harry during his first visit to Diagon Alley. What other animals on the list have a special place in your heart? Are there any that you love that didn’t make the list? Let us know in the comments below!
