"Of all the teachers at Linbury Court Preparatory School, my favourite has to be Mr Carter, because he always seemed to understand that what happened to me was not my fault. Somehow every time Darbishire and I have a plan, it never seems to work properly. When one thing goes wrong, it turns into two things, then four things, and -Fishhooks! - the whole world seems to collapse around my ears! Oh, yes, you need a question - what is my name?"
"My name is Gruffanuff, and I am governess and lady-in-waiting to Princess Angelica. My husband used to work at the palace as well, but he was turned into a doorknocker by Fairy Blackstick! Do you know who brought me to life in the book called 'The Rose and the Ring'?"
"I have always looked out for myself. I've had to. I have my own gang - my army. They look up to me even though I cannot walk and move around on a little trolley. When I first met Marco I wanted nothing to do with him, but somehow I knew that he would be a good friend. I was right. My Dad died, and Marco's father let me stay with them. That was only the start of our adventures - we were to travel across Europe to help restore the country of Samavia to its rightful King. That was an adventure never to be forgotten! Oh yes, my name is Jem, but everyone knows me by my nickname - do you know what it is?"
"I'm called Rosie, and my husband is Jo. We have seven children, Lily Rose, Kate, John and Jim (the twins), Little Jo, Peg and baby William. We lived at number 1, One End Street in a town called Otwell on the Ouse, before the Second World War. What is our surname?"
"I am a scarecrow and I live in Ten-acre Field; my wife is called Earthy Mangold. I have had lots of adventures with Susan and John, who stayed at Scatterbrook Farm. My name stays the same, whichever head I am wearing, but do you know what my name is?"
(first name, or both names - my first name has a Z in it!)
"My friend, Pat, died at the end of the book which tells of just one week of my life in 1940. We met when he was being bullied by some locals; he was an evacuee. We became friends instantly, even though we were totally different from each other. Our big adventure came when we took my boat, 'Dolphin' across to France to help save our soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk. We got home safely, but then Pat went back without me, and was never seen again. Do you know the name of the book which tells of our adventures?"
The Dolphin Crossing
The 1940 Adventures
One Week That Summer
Sailing Through the Fire
"I escaped from a hunter who had just killed my mother, and ran into a town where a kindly lady gave me a home because 'she understood little elephants and knew at once that I was longing for a smart suit'. Who am I?"
"I lived in a cave with my parents many years ago, in the days before names such as we know them now existed. My parents took one look at me and said that my name had to be 'Littlenose' because my nose was 'no bigger than a berry'! My best friend was a little mammoth. He was unusual because he had one green eye and one red eye but do you know what his name was?"
"I am an engine and I work for the Merioneth and Llantisilly Rail Traction Company Limited, a small railway 'in the top left-hand corner of Wales'. Peter Firmin wrote two books about me (one in 1962 and the other in 1967). I often wonder why I was not as popular as Thomas the Tank Engine, because I had my own adventures; I even took part in the Eisteddfod and helped win the silver wreath! What is my name?"
George the Engine
Ivor the Engine
Taffy the Engine
Paddy the Engine
"I always TRIED to do things right, but it never seemed to work. Then one day the worst thing happened - I didn't pay any attention to what Aunt Izzie said and had a bad accident falling from a swing. I was to lie in bed for years before I was able to walk again. Do you know who I am?"
