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 a very ordinary looking kid. Petite. Small for her years.

Eyes: different shades of green

Teeth: small, doll-like

Hair: dark brown, side parting across her right eye, 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.
