Who is Ivy Pocket?
Ivy Pocket
Just who is this twelve-year-old maid of no importance you ask? Sit down and she will tell you everything ...

You’re a maid! What is your least favourite duty? We bet you have one …

I never bet, dear. But if I had to declare my least favourite duty it would probably be anything involving dusting, sweeping, carrying trays, pouring tea, serving cake, polishing silver, cleaning windows, making beds and emptying chamber pots. Apart from that, I adore my work.
 
What three words would you use to describe yourself?

Only three? How unfair. As I think it's plain bad manners to boast, I simply refuse to tell you that the best way to describe myself is pretty, clever and loveable.   

What three words do you think other people would use to describe you?

People are crazy about me  ask anyone. Sometimes the only way they can deal with their devotion is to run the other way when they see me coming, or pretend I'm not there, or have me arrested for trespassing. As for three words, well, the last person who tried to run me over with a horse and carriage described me as unforgettable, inexcusable and bonkers. Which was lovely. 

 

What advice do you have for people travelling with very important items which they must deliver to very important people? 

Only this  do not befriend any murderous lunatics with a habit of stabbing people in the heart. Oh, and drink plenty of water  does wonders for the skin.

If you could choose to live in Paris or London, which city would you choose and why?

Definitely Paris. I have a fondness for frogs legs and grumpy pastry chefs. Also, I am five-and-a-half centimetres taller in Paris. Strange, yet true.

Do you think it’s better to have a plan A and a plan B, or to have no plans at all?

After my thrilling yet tragic encounter with a two-headed princess, I never have a plan A. Much better to move straight to plan B, which for me nearly always involves a pretty blue dress, three pounds of chocolate and a pirate ship.
