Tilly Dappledawn is just the opposite of her brother. She is very quiet and happily spends hours and hours painting and creating wonderful pictures of the Sylvanian countryside. While her brother is running about in the woods, Tilly enjoys sitting at her easel and painting to her heart’s content. During the winter, Tilly loves to knit by the fireside. Everyone in her family is always well clad with jumpers and scarves to keep the cold out.
