D= Darcy. is a cobbler and makes everything from clogs and boots to slippers and sandals. He is a very skilled craftsman, but he is also very shy and rarely says more than "thank you, madam" or " ready next week, sir" when sylvanians come into his shop. M= Bridget is a great help to her husband. She not only buys all the shiny materials and colourful laces that he needs to make his fine shoes, but she also assists him with his many customers. The only problem with this is that she is very shy too and rarely speaks above a whisper. Sometimes she has to repeat herself three or four times before people realise that shes even talking to them!  B= Daniel is as intelligent as can be. But it took his teachers a long time to discover this as he never says more than two words in class. It was only when he got top marks in every subject that they realised just how clever he was. S= Helen is as quiet as the rest of her family, except when it comes to netball. She walks out onto the netball court and begins to order everyone around as loudly as possible. CB= Clip.

B= Paddock is very frisky, running, skipping and jumping everywhere, he just can't seem to stand still for long. All this pent up energy makes Paddock very good at the playground game of 'catch' but he is at a disadvantage when the children play a game of 'hide and seek'. S= Annabell does not like to rush anything. She walks slowly and gracefully, and has never been seen to run or even jog. Getting ready for school in the morning takes her hours. BB= Fennel and BS= Dolly are shy babies who don't like being away from their mother Daisy.

D= Fred graduated in many dance styles but his favorite is tap. He and his wife went on to open the Golightly School of dance, where he is the principal.

After taking lots of examinations she met Fred and they became dance partners in Latin and Ballroom and won many championships. Although Holly still loves to dance her real passion now is her children, whom she adores.B= Toby goes to dance classes most evevnings with his sister Tiffany, with the hope of becoming dance champions in Latin and Ballroom, just like their parents.

Rupert is also very enthusiatic about healthy eating, and likes to make salads and soups using ingredients grown in his own vegetable garden. M= Agatha is the headteacher of St. Francis school. Even when she was little, Agatha was very academic and always had her homework finished long before her friends. Being very kind though, she always helped others once she had finished. But od course, she made sure it was all their own work as copying is cheating! B= Freddie loves to paint. His favorite lesson at school is art and he is always getting his friends to sit still in the playground or on the school field so he can paint their portaits. Freddie is actually getting very good, and spends every lunch time in the art room practising. He even sold some paintings at the village show this summer. S= Maria is never happier than when in the water. She is a champion swimmer and has lots of badges on her swimming costume. Her father, rupert coaches her at weekends and afetr school down at the lake and is very proud of his little girl! SBB= Oscar can quite often be heard before he can be seen!

CBB= matthew and SBG= Lily, want to be like their big brother, freddie, and are never happier than when colouring with their crayons.

65. Trunk Elephants.

D= Hugo is a lumberjack with the important job of keeping sylvania clean and tidy. Every morning he uses his strong trunk and huge tusks to clear fallen trees from the forest and every afternoon he rewards himself with a long mud bath and an even longer lie down! M= Savannah prefers to use her brain rather than her brawn! She has a wonderful memory and, much to the annoyance of her family, never forgets anything. Thats good news when it comes to their birthdays, of course, but bad news when it comes to any bad behaviour!  B= Ivor desperately wants to be a hockey player when he grows up. He has great stick control and now that his 'trunk skills' have improved so much, he shows great promise in goal. His dad thinks he should still train to be a lumberjack, just in case!  S= Nellie hates hockey, but loves ballet. The 'sugar plum fairy' is her favorite role and she practices the steps every chance she gets. She wears a beautiful pink tutu and satin ballet slippers- but only when her brother is not around! BB= peanut and BS= Nana are too small at the moment to help in the forest. As long as they've got a paddling pool and some buns they're quite happy!

66. Spotter Meercats.

D= Harry is the most alert and watchful- and it's a good job too as he has to check that there are no wildfires in the forest. As this vital role demands his total concentration, the other sylvanians have learnt not to take it personally if Harry ignores them completely!  M= Beatrix on the other hand is always warm and friendly. Just like Rose Timbertop she loves children and is often babysitting as many as twenty at a time. She bakes them fairy cakes and reads them fairy stories- and she counts them every fifteen minutes to make sure they're all still there! B= Alfie always has his head in a book. He often gets so absorbed in one of his adventure stories that he regularly forgets what day it is and has known to turn up for school on a saturday!  S= Gail would much rather go for a long walk in the sylvanian forest than read a book. She particularly enjoys strolling along by the river and picking wild flowers for her mother. BB= Peregrine. BS= Penelope. BS= Prudence.

Her sketches are so detailed that once it took her over a week to draw a simple buttercup. But thankfully Geoff always thinks his wifes illustrations ae worth waiting for.B= Simion is far too energetic to be interested in plants or drawing. He parents think he's too energetic because if he's not playing football he's playing basketball, and if he's not playing basketball he's playing cricket. S= Katie ia almost as active as her brother. As one of the best gymnasts in sylvania she spends her days swinging on bars, balancing on beams and somersaulting over the floor.
