Lolo
Ziggy
Tiggou
Elina

One of the jungle elders, Lolo is the head librarian of Hurryberry Library. Just like all librarians, she cannot stand noise, even though she is a little hard of hearing…

If Tiggou and friends need to know something, they are sure ask Lolo for help. Spiders are the keepers of knowledge in the animal kingdom, after all.

Lolo Yo-Yo gets her name from the way she bounces on her thread of silk whenever someone calls. Making noise is the surest way to get her attention…

As long as you’re loud enough! When she does hear noise, Lolo will drop from above to find the culprit, complaining about the racket long after everyone has disappeared.

Noise

Research, general knowledge

A sucker for food, Ziggy will eat almost anything, but bananas are his all-time favourite. The lure of a banana or two can sway Ziggy from the task-at-hand, or coax him into action.

When he’s not eating, Ziggy loves to play with words, and has a stock of quirky phrases, silly rhymes and crazy exclamations.

He is also rather scruffy and doesn't like taking a bath. Ziggy hates water and will do anything to avoid it if he can.

Ziggy has a knack for mischief and often gets himself and his friends into hot water. But while he seems to be careless, Ziggy has a good heart and is always there for his friends.

Typical Quotes:

"Bounding bananas!", "This is spooky-ook-ooky!"

Likes:

Bananas, TV, making up words

Dislikes:

Water, mythical monsters

Strengths:

Creating diversions, word play

Bananas

Tiggou is like any seven-year-old: full of mischief and hungry for adventure! Brave and loyal, when trouble rears its head Tiggou always has a plan to save the day.

Just like human children, Tiggou goes to school. This is so he can learn all the things he needs to be a true prince of the jungle one day. Schools do not normally let

animals attend, but Tiggou is a master of disguise. Except for his friend Philo, nobody at Little Tigers Elementary knows the truth.

Tiggou's one weakness is music. It hypnotises him, sending him into a dance trance that he can't control. This is something that his friends think is a real hoot!

Typical Quotes:

"Super stripes!", "Sounds like trouble!"

Likes:

Chicken chow mein, sleeping, adventures

Dislikes:

Being woken up

Strengths:

Master of disguise, bravery, can see in the dark

Weaknesses:

Music sends Tiggou into a dance trance

Grouchy and sarcastic, eleven-year-old Elina has a strong sense of responsibility. She sees herself as a big sister to Tiggou and Ziggy.

And just like a big sister, she feels it is her duty to make sure her friends don’t get into too much trouble. Elina also loves to learn new things and likes to listen in at the window of Little Tigers Elementary whenever she can.

She also tends to lecture Tiggou on the lessons she thinks he should remember for himself.

Elina’s one weakness is that her trunk sometimes has a mind of its own, choosing to make mischief at just the wrong moment, but it’s nothing a good sneeze won’t fix!

Typical Quotes:

"Silly Ziggy!", "Oh boy..."

Likes:

Learning, playing in water

Dislikes:

Bullies, Ziggy’s bathing habits

Strengths:

Excellent memory, physical strength

Weaknesses:

Elina has a trunk with a mind of its own
