Melody is 9 years old. She has 4 brothers who like tease her and tickle her. Her brothers call her "4-eyes" because she wears glasses.
Melody's favorite thing to do is to put on plays and puppet shows. She puts them on for her family with the help of her good friends, Brenda and Mark.
Mark lives in the same apartment building that Melody lives in. Mark is the same age as Melody's next older brother and he is very nice; he doesn't tease her like her brothers do. Mark helps Melody with science and math.
