These are some of the main characters in The River Goddess & Other Stories. You’ll meet each one in more detail, but for now…
The Raven serves as a messenger. He carries important information back and forth between Alyssa and her friends. He gets a bit grumpy from time to time, but he has a good heart!
Then there’s Mr. Mole. Definitely not the best-tempered of the lot, but he does help save Alyssa and Mr. Two from a terrible fate in “The Ants’ Treasure.”
And we can’t forget Mr. Snake, who plays his own part in helping Alyssa and Two out of a bad spot.
Finally, there’s Octa, the Sea Princess. Octa is probably the most difficult character of all. She’s imperious, petulant, and utterly narcissistic! A hard one to love, but the Cockney Gull is smitten in spite of it.
