Posy is an intensely active, curious child, often the despair of her mother, Daph, harassed by the demands of baby Fred and by finding yet another of Posy's spider or stick insect collections. She's characterful and resourceful, organising chaotic pet shows, making friends with the Bag Lady at the fair and finally achieving her heart's desire when Daph allows her to keep a stray dog. Judy Bennett's Midlands accent for the dialogue makes the family realistic and she's an excellent creator of character through voice: Posy's childish enthusiasm, the slow, nasal twang of some of her friends and the quiet despair - and love - in over-worked Daph.
