ANNABELL BUTTERCUP does not like to rush anything. She is the total opposite of her brother and always walks slowly and gracefully around the village, never running or jogging anywhere. In fact, Annabell likes to take her time over everything and getting ready for school in the morning often takes her hours. She is never happ2y unless her white petticoat is clean and her favourite yellow dress is free from creases. Of course, all that care goes to waste the moment she meets up with Paddock – her brother is so boisterous that it’s not long before she is covered in mud and grass stains!
