I am looking for good picture books to use to compare and contrast characters. Any good ideas?

I have used a venn diagram with Lon Po Po and Little Red Riding Hood (different versions). We have also compared the grandmother and granddaughter in Annie and the Old One. I've used Tomie DePaola's Legend of the Indian Paintbrush and Legend of the Bluebonnet (the young children in the stories). In Stone Fox (chapter book)we compared the book with the movie version. We did the same thing with Molly's Pilgrim. They can use a strong character book like Ruby the copycat and compare her with her friend or even themselves! Tomie DePaola, James Marshall, Kevin Henkes all use good characters in their books.

The Talking Egg has two very different characters. I just used it today and they really enjoyed it.

We've done Lon Po Po and Little Red Riding Hood. You could also compare/contrast Cinderella stories. Of course there's the classic Cinderella, but there's one called Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters, and Bubba, the Cowboy Prince. There's more I'm sure. But those two are really great!
