Read about the characters


Abney loves being at home in his hut, surrounded by his favourite things and he is always ready for adventure!


Teal is fearless and imaginative. She lives in the tree high above Abney’s hut with only her bed and umbrella. If there's a chance for adventure she'll be down in a flash!


Neep is a mysterious fellow with a shrewd sense of humour. He is always up for fun, and can pop up anywhere!

The Poc-Pocs

The Poc-Pocs like to be together. Their poc-ing sound shows they're never far away as they share in the adventures with Abney and Teal.


Bop likes a cup of tea and likes to blow bubbles. He lives in the water. Everyone knows they can rely on Bop to help them out of a jam.


Toby-Dog does not live on the island, but he is always in the park providing toe-tapping music from across the water.
