Books and movies with characters who are homeschooled

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer (Virginia, USA)
The list author says: "There are so many books about things that happen _in_ school. And they're funny, but how about some books for your homeschooled kids to read about fictional homeschoolers? Or maybe you just want to find books about different kinds of "schooling." Here's a start, with a couple movies, too."
