Six convivial talking animals

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Sara Brady tagged six talking-animal characters she’d like to have a drink with, including:
Templeton (Rat from Charlotte’s Web, by E. B. White)

Drink: Mojitos

Let’s be clear: this drink is less about finding out what Charlotte’s rodent sidekick (again with the rats) has to say, and more about interrogating Paul Lynde about why he never wrote an insanely juicy tell-all autobiography.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Charlotte's Web is among Joel Cunningham's favorite talking animals in fiction, Scott Greenstone's top twenty books with fewer than 200 pages, Mohsin Hamid's six favorite books and Sarah Lean's top ten animal stories; it is a book Kate DiCamillo hopes parents will read to their kids.
