Annabel Bliss

  • Accidental Misnaming: Uncle Alec refers to her as "Ariadne Blish" at one point while talking to himself, although it's unclear whether this is Malicious Misnaming or if he actually thinks that is her name. In the first edition, the character’s name actually was Ariadne Blish.
  • Beta Couple: With Fun See.
  • The Ditz
  • Friendly Enemy: She and Rose have this sort of a relationship in the first book, but they improve considerably as they grow older.
  • Lovable Alphabitch: While much more of a ditz than Rose and is somewhat set up as an example of the vapid girl she shouldn't aspire to be, she's not a bad person in herself.
  • She's All Grown Up

Fun See


In the first edition, her name is Debby for the first three chapters, changing to Dolly when she reappears later in the book. In later editions, she is Dolly throughout.

Kitty Van Tassel

  • Beta Couple: With Steve.
  • The Ditz: Though to her merit, she is aware of her ditziness and tries to get better.
