Bessie, short for Elizabeth, is the youngest of the Doiley Bird family. She's less keen on adventures than her sisters, but tags along so that she's not left out. She would much rather be at home reading a book or getting ready to go for a fancy dinner (getting ready is the fun part!).
She keeps her bag close, so that she matches her sisters, but also in case she has a book that she just can't put down. You never know when you'll need a book!
