Favorite Fictional Teams

The author of Code Name Verity, the popular young adult novel that pairs a British spy and Air Transport pilot – both young women -- during World War II, recently shared her favorite fictional partners in The Guardian (Elizabeth Wein's Top Ten Dynamic Duos in Fiction, June 20, 2013). They range from Frodo and Sam in the Lord of the Rings trilogy to Pooh and Piglet in Winnie the Pooh and the House at Pooh Corner. Here are some other fictional matches she admires:

Hazel and Fiver in Watership Down by Richard Adams
Laura and Paul Ingalls in The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Harriet Vane and Peter Wimsey in Strong Poison and other novels by Dorothy Sayers
Marcus and Esca in The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff
Ged and Tenar in The Tombs of Atuan by Ursula K. Le Guin
