Francesca Spaghetti is one of the heroes of our stories. She has some amazing adventures with her twin sister Poppy Noodle. Click here to find out more about Francesca Spaghetti!
Francesca Spaghetti has two amazing Magic Powers:
- She can play any musical instrument well, and;
- She can stop time when she sings.
These are both very useful talents and on a number of occasions she has saved the lives of her sister and their friends with this exceptional ability.
She got these Powers because she is a good musician and practices very hard. The Powers don't always work - that's how Magic is - but for some unknown reason 'Ten Green Bottles' seems to be a good choice most of the time.
What a silly question. SPAGHETTI, of course!
Oh, and ice cream.
Francesca Spaghetti is a quiet and serious girl. She studies hard at school and thinks it's right to try her best always.
Although a bit shy, Francesca Spaghetti is a very brave young lady who, despite her own fears, is more than willing to stand up to bullies and to do the right thing!
She's not really good at sports, she prefers talking with her friends and playing with her sister Poppy Noodle and visiting Lady Quicksilver in The Magic Meadow.
Poppy Noodle is Francesca Spaghetti's twin sister. She is just a few minutes younger than her but that makes a difference!
Poppy Noodle is a very good artist and is always drawing things and making stuff from old yoghurt cartons and boxes of cornflakes. That is probably why she was granted a very special Power when she visited the Magic Meadow:
- Things she draws can come to life
Like her sister, it doesn't always happen and it doesn't always last. Nonetheless, it is a very useful talent to be able to call upon in a difficult situation and, let's face it, the girls are often in very tricky situations.
Poppy Noodle got her name because she likes pasta too, especially with tomato sauce and lots of cheese. She would eat it every day if she could.
She has a soft spot for chocolate too.
Poppy Noodle is very smart. She is good at most things and is a good athlete. Sometimes she can get a bit distracted and that usually leads to mischief. It's not that she intends to be naughty. It kinda just happens--mostly.
She is a bit more gung ho than her sister and from time to time she has to be stopped from rushing in to things without thinking matters through carefully enough first.
She is popular at school and a natural leader of the pack.
Lulu is a cat. To be precise, she is Francesca Spaghetti's pet cat. Click on the headings to read about her.
Lulu has a bit of a Magic Power too.
- When she goes into The Magic Meadow she becomes a tiger
Only a little tiger but she's scary enough. She thinks being scary is cool. Cooler than being a pussy cat any day.
Duh. Tuna fish!
There is only one thing Lulu likes more than eating and that is sleeping while dreaming about eating.
It's not that she's lazy...well not only lazy, she doesn't feel the need to be expending energy unnecessarily all the time.
It's fair to say that she doesn't realize that she is a 'pet'. Instead, from her point of view, she considers Francesca Spaghetti and Poppy Noodle to be her personal butlers whose duties are to wait on her hand and foot.
It's no exaggeration to say that she is fiercely protective of Francesca Spaghetti and her sister Poppy Noodle.
Flora is a fairy queen who lives in The Magic Meadow. She is very beautiful and kind and looks out for Francesca Spaghetti and Poppy Noodle giving them good advice which they - mostly - listen to.
Where do you start?
Flora can pretty much do what she wants when it comes to Magic. Is it her or some strange, mysterious force at work through her? Who knows? Not that it makes any difference; she's pretty much got it all under control.
Candied clouds. (Read the book if you want to know what they are).
Did I say that Flora was kind? Well she is. And, wise. She is a very wise lady.
She does let Francesca Spaghetti and Poppy Noodle decide things for themselves. She thinks its important that they think and make up their own minds but she's always there to guide them if they need it. She has been known to chide them patiently if they go a bit off course.
She is very good humored and bears an uncanny resemblance to Mrs Bloom the ice cream parlor owner. They couldn't be related in some way could they?
Lady Quicksilver is a fabulous Magic unicorn that lives in The Magic Meadow.
Click on the arrows to find out more about her!
Lady Quicksilver has the gift of being able to take the girls anywhere that they want to go, as well as bring them back, in an instant but they have to say the special Magic words.
Also, being Magic, she is 'everycolor' - that is, she is every color at the same time which means that she blends in with her surroundings and is very difficult for non-Magical people to spot. This helps to keep her safe when the girls are on their adventures.
Potato and carrot flavor ice cream - which the girls bring her from Mrs Bloom's ice cream parlor.
Lady Quicksilver is patient, kind and strong and likes having Francesca Spaghetti and Poppy Noodle ride on her back.
Oh, and she's fast. She's so fast when she gallops that she leaves the wind puffing and panting behind her.
Psst! Take a look at this...
Mr Spud, the Headmaster has been absentminded. He accidentally left Francesca Spaghetti and Poppy Noodle's Student Files lying around. What do you think, shall we take a sneaky peek at what they are really like at school?
