Writer's Block: Wild Rumpus

A lot of characters in kids' books have it pretty good, from calling the start of the wild rumpus to ordering room service from their hotel suite. If you could be any character from children's literature, who would you be?
Any of several characters in Ransome's _Swallows and Amazons_ series--Captain Nancy,  of course, but most of the others are attractive too.  In fact, I'd most like to switch from one to another--Nancy to John to Dick to Dot to Titty...but not, most of the time, to Susan.
