About Ruby Redfort

 Lauren Child’s Ruby Redfort.

Thirteen-year-old girl. Every smart kid’s smart kid. Sassy, cute, brainy and fearless. Well, except for small dark spaces, which she is rather scared by… but isn’t everybody?


At first glance Ruby is a very ordinary looking girl. Petite and small for her years.

Eyes: different shades of green

Teeth: small and doll-like

Hair: dark brown with a side parting across her right eye and always secured by a barrette.


Usually seen in jeans and a T-shirt printed with either a somewhat hostile word bozo, an interesting number like 1729, or some less than agreeable statement, bored beyond belief.
