  1. Dickon is a excellent and well behaved boy.he gives safe and good advice to Mary about what would happen if Collins father saw Mary with Collin.i think that Dickson is very caring and kind because he cares about Collin and especially Mary because he doesn’t want Mary to get into any trouble.

  2. Mary is an orphan that is unhappy and lonely.She is a down hearted young girl.So she gets everything her way and she is spoilt.so she went to live whith her uncle that lives in yorkshire in misselthwaite manor it is in chanted and mysterious.While she was in yorkshire she totally forgotten to boss people about.

  3. Gold:
    Dickson is an independent lad, who always talks to Mary . Dickon respects everyone . He cares for anyone mean or nice thin or fat. His skin is as dirty as a chimney sweeper even though he has done chimney sweep . Dickon lives with Mary’s cousin Collin and uncle mr craven. He wears a dirty,ancient flat cap on his head . He has a pail,sickly face . He’s happy on his own but he would be better if people visited him.

  4. Bronze Mary has a thin face,thin body and has thin hair.Her face is yellow and sour like a sour meon.

    The unwanted girl, who is cold hearted she only thinks about herself. Mary is an ordinary and selfish girl. She is orphaned and only cares about herself. She has a yellow face. The reason she has a yellow face is that she lived in India and was often ill. She has long,brown straight hair, which she often likes leaving it in plats. She has sour face, which shows how naughty she is.

    Her mum often goes to party’s and travels around the world.But when she found that she was having a baby she was not pleased. So she decided that she can live with her uncle. So she has not see her parents a lot.

  5. Colin is a hypricondric person because he is not really disabled.He is very poor because her sister Mary Lenox is bossing him which makes Colin Mary’s servant.Since Mary came to India to live with her uncle Colin should not be Mary’s servant.

    Mary,who is very bossy and naughty,lives with her strict uncle in his severe manor.She was a grumpy and moody girl also was never happy about anything.

    Mary has a disgusting,little and sour face which has lots of pimples on it.When she is very selfish and greedy,she gets obsessed with herself a lot.She has dark,brown,which is very stiff.
    Silver
    Colin is a troubled hypochondriac cousin of Mary .This is because he overreacts and exxaggarates about things that are wrong with him but there really isn’t anything wrong.
    The boy wears a light,brown flatcap and he sits poshly in his colourful wheel chair.He has dark,brown hair which looks like mouldy mud.Colin comes inside when the dark,blanket of back covers the sky.His flatcap slouches on his dirty head.

  7. Colin is a rude safisticated boy,who tells people what to do and just
    Lays around in his boring,weird wheelchair.He thinks he’s the boss of everything
    But even though he is stuck-up,he still is to crazy and horrible.He is as cheeky as a monkey.he acts like the queen full of money.its like
    He is full of dollars

  8. I think that she is to spoilt and she only think about herself and so rood. she dose not think nice thing in her mind about people and about here mum or dad, her face is to sour and she never be nice to people and to mean. and she jumps up and down on her bed all the time and it is to much jumping. it’s so load it is like thunder and lighting in the black long wide thick clods in the night sky and it’s thick like sweet’s.

  9. Silver

    Colin is such a hypochondriact, who pretends something is wrong with them but not really.He overeacts over everything.
    The look on his face might persuade you that he is a sweet person but really he is a drama king.

    Colin wears a flat,light brown grandad hat.Also he sits in a wheel chair , which is made out of thin hair.He wears dull,dark brown trousers as dark as the colour black.His shirt is a piece of paper with chocolate,brown laces over it.

    Mary is an ordinary girl but her life isn’t ordinary it is not because she is an orphan. She has a sour little face hich always has spots and pimples, she is self obsessed. Since she was born in india she and her dad where always ill. Since she was born her mother hated her because her her mother didnt because she waant a baby because she was the kind of person who always went to partys. So her mum sent Mary to an aya which looked after her but even when her mum said keep her out of sight Mary was forgotten she was never at the center of attention thats why she turned bossy .

  12. Silver: Mary lives with her rich parents in india. No one has even cared for her she is confesed hardly enyone know she there. She feels down hearted. she is spoiled and stickly child. she is orphaned that she lives with her uncle’s great house on the yourkshire moors, she finds it full of screats.
