Some girls get it all... and what's left over is Margo.

Whether it's from her experience being kidnapped as a toddler or just the way she was when she was born, Margo May is a perpetual tumbleweed of problems. First she took months longer than usual to learn to walk, then she couldn't sleep without her night-light,  then she couldn't leave the house without wearing her trusty yellow rubber boots: "Because what if I stepped on a nail or sumfing!" she'd say. Over time many of these difficulties subsided, but their effect on her general cautious approach to the world has not.

'Timid' is an understatement when it comes to her. Most everything scares her; doctors have almost reached the point of chronicling her phobias. Talking, of course, is one of them. Although she warms up to people after a while, it takes a lot of coddling and support to get her to speak, and even then she never says much.  She's about just as clumsy with her words as she is with her feet--only making her all the more self concious. As such, she's put most of her effort into learning how to write instead, but that in itself was more a struggle for her than for most because of her dyslexia.

And yet, her lack of ability to communicate verbally has led to an incredibly over-active imagination. Perhaps that's why she's often so fearful--it's easy to be scared when you imagine everything that could go wrong--but it also has given her great comfort where the world is so overwhelming. When it all becomes too much, she can retreat to her daydreams and live as the princess she always wishes she could be.


a hopeless dreamer, that’s what they call me. a ‘don quixote’. like dreaming is this pathetic, useless thing. a total waste of time. to me, though, it’s not… but maybe that’s because it’s the only time anything ever seems to go right for me. if it weren’t for fairy tales and fantasy, i’d never be the girl trapped at the top of anyone’s tower.
or maybe i’m just not meant to be rescued.

-- Margo Kane
"the dreamer"

Unfortunately, where most would make up from their faults with extraordinary gifts in other areas, Margo finds herself feeling pretty... average. She's not very smart, not very pretty, not very artistic, and plumbbob knows she can't dress herself like a normal person half the time.

Her one emerging talent may be her ability to tell stories, but overcoming her incredibly low self-esteem so that she has the courage to share them is one thing she hasn't quite mastered--but in an effort to try and change that, she started her very own blog, "Yours Truly, Margo" to try and find a way to reach her voice out to the world.


Perhaps, in time, she'll discover where her true gifts lie--but for now, this girl just has to make up for her extreme lack of skills with an extreme abundance of heart. Her wild brown hair isn't the only thing she inherited from her mother--she also has the ability to see the best in others, even when no one else can. However, although it's gained her a few friends, Margo still sees it as less of a gift and more of a curse, as she ends caring about more people than who care about her.

You can download Margo with her family on the downloads page.

No quotes or photo collage for Margo, yet--she'll get those a little later on, when she grows up a little. I'll mention something somewhere when I do add them. ^-^

Agree with others. She is adorable with her yellow boots and her mismatched clothes.
Loved the end of season update too.

Yellow boots, shy and clumsy? I heart her already.

She does look adorable.

Clumsy, coward and shy - poor kid. Good thing she has her trusty yellow boots.

Looking forward to Margo stealing the limelight, and every heart.
