likes swimming with whales in the bath and she LOVES pink milk and her best friend
She loves bouncing, scribbling
and colouring. She also likes Sizzles, Marv's
And don't forget Soren Lorensen, her
imaginary friend. No one can see him except
She knows what she likes, and feels
extremely, ever-so strongly about it.

than ten or itchy jumpers. She will not ever,
NEVER eat a tomato.
She's not deliberately
difficult…..she's innocent and imaginative.
And she loves her brother Charlie.
Charlie is seven years old. He likes playing

He also likes Lola, his younger sister. Lola

Lotta is a little

suggestion. She's a LOT in awe of Charlie and
Marv, and Sizzles, the dog.
Marv and Charlie are the same age and the

Marv lives downstairs and has a very stupid
sausage dog called Sizzles.
Marv and Charlie
love playing football in the park and making
things together, assault courses for dog
training, castles and outer space music.
