Characters in Molly Moon

These are characters from the children's novels Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism, Molly Moon Stops the World, Molly Moon's Hypnotic Time-Travel Adventure and the newly released Molly Moon, Micky Minus and the Mind Machine.


Molly Moon

Molly Moon is a 10 year old orphan with pink blotchy legs, curly brown hair, a steady droning voice, large, hypnotic, closely set, dark green eyes and a "potato nose". She likes eating ketchup sandwiches and likes drinking orange squash concentrate (although when she goes to America she drinks shirley temples and grenadine).

Molly Moon's name derives from the fact that she was found on the doorstep of Hardwick House, (later to be renamed Happiness House), in a Moon's Marshmallows box. In the first book, Molly learned to hypnotize people after discovering a book about hypnotism. Using her new-found hypnotic powers she travels to New York looking for Rocky and gains the part of the main character on a Broadway musical called Stars on Mars. She stole a part in the play and she kicks out the other girl. She hypnotizes all of the crew to think she was the best in the world.

In the second book, she travels to the United States and learns that her parents are Lucy Logan, the librarian in Briersville, and Primo Cell, an American businessman. She also discovers that she has the power to stop time with the help of her big, clear crystal.

In the third book, Molly and Petula the pug are kidnapped by a power-crazy Maharaja who wants to kill Molly so she can't be the greatest hypnotist ever. She learns the ability to time-travel using special crystals (red and green). Forest (a man she met in the second book who is a hippie) and Rocky are also kidnapped later. The maharaja takes several other Mollys (from different times) so Molly needs to fix time before her entire childhood changes forever.

In the fourth book, Molly has to rescue her twin brother from the future. She also discovers through strange circumstances, that she has the ability to mind read after having her hypnotic knowledge taken away from her, though she gets it back. The villain in this book is a supposedly six-year-old princess who has a plan to take over the world.

Molly also has a pet pug named Petula, who she rescued from Miss Adderstone in the first book. Petula is also a hypnotist and it is revealed near the end of the third book that she can also stop time. Petula enjoys sucking on stones.

Rocky Scarlet

Rocky Scarlet is a good-looking boy with curly black hair, a deep, husky voice, and what are believed to be hazel-colored eyes. He has been best friends with Molly since she was a baby. He is calm and collected and it takes a lot to unnerve him. He always seems to know what to do.

Rocky's name derives partly from the pram he was found in the parking lot behind a police station, with "the Scarlet Rocker" printed on the hood. Surname of scarlet because of the name on the pram, and first name rocky, a shortened version of Rocker.

Rocky learned voice hypnotism from the same book as Molly by going to the Briersville library secretly. He eventually stopped going there and ripped out the two chapters about voice hypnosis. This prevented Molly from learning about it. His hypnotizing powers are fairly strong but he needs time for his hypnotism to take effect. He also appears to have a talent for singing.He also plays the guitar and befriends Billy Bob Bimble in the second book.

Rocky does not yet know who his parents are, unlike his best friend Molly, whose parents are Primo Cell and Lucy Logan. Also a friend with Molly Moon.


Petula is Molly's black pet pug. She was once owned by Miss Agnes Adderstone, but has been rescued by Molly. In various books, Petula has learned to hypnotize. She has a history of hyponotism- she has, like her mistress, Molly, the ability to hyponotise others. This is most explicitly demonstrated when she improved in the fourth novel by hypnotizing Miss Cribbins' evil pet, Taramasalata. In the third book, Petula has even stopped time. She also hypnotized sleepy mice in California in the second book. Without Petula, Molly, Rocky, Micky and herself could have still been still been at the terrible palace. Petula is now known to be a doggy hero.

Micky Moon

Micky is an eleven- year old boy with curly brown hair. He shows a striking resemblance to twin sister Molly and is very thin and bony. He is also very self-conscious and vain- often exaggerating his unfortunate, so- called "illness". In the third book, Molly discovers she has a lost twin. In the fourth book she takes Rocky and Petula, her hypnotising pug, with her to go find Micky, her twin. They go back in time, and find out that an evil, time traveling hypnotist named Redhorn had taken him to the future, precisely 500 years from where Molly lives. So the three follow him through time (Molly lassoing him with her crystals), and as they get closer to Micky, Molly finds out more about him. On the way to the future, Molly had picked up a strip of a hospital bracelet incompletely labeled " GAN TWIN", which he later uses as a "comfort rag Later on she noticed it was not a rag, but a bracelet, labeled: " ST. MICHAEL'S HOSPITAL MALE LO". WHen Molly put the two strips together, hers and Micky's it revealed " ST. MICHAEL'S HOSPITAL MALE LOGAN TWIN". Molly explained to her brother and surprisingly he believed her. After several conflicts and adventures in the future, Micky chooses to go with them, and since his first surname was ' Minus', he wanted to change it because it made him feel like nothing. So he changed it to Micky Moon, named after his sister, Molly Moon.


Forest is Sinclair's yoga teacher. He's a stereotypical hippie who wears dreads and likes meditating. He plays a secondary role in books 2 and 4 and becomes one of the protagonists in book 3. Though he has quite a weird personality and sometimes looks silly, he can even be called wise in some ways: he taught Molly many aspects of meditation that helped her a lot in book 2 and suggested some useful ideas about time traveling in book 3.


Ojas in an Indian boy from the year 1870. He has green eyes like Molly's, straight nose and walks barefoot. He's a hindu. After both of his parents died, he began stealing to survive. On the other hand, he still has a kind heart and a sense of humor.

Molly first met him in book 3 when he stole her crystals for time travelling. They made a deal, and he returned them to her. Soon they became friends. Though Ojas is one of book 3's main characters, he appears only episodically in book 4. He always calls Molly «Mollee» probably because of Indian accent, though his English is close to perfect.

Original Villains

'Professor' Simon Nockman

Simon Nockman (alias, Professor Nockman) is a chubby, ill-groomed man who wears a gold scorpion pendant around his neck. He also has 'bulbous' eyes and black greasy hair. He doesn't shower much instead using cologne to cover up the smell, this giving him a terrible smell. Simon Nockman's cruel way of life began at an early age, when his pet budgerigar Fluffy was caught in a rat trap set out by the landlord. His immoral parents did not offer him any consolence for this (his mother laughed.) He learned to be mean and cruel from them. Since then, he has done many crimes to others.

At the age of eleven, he learned how to steal goods. When he was an adult, he tricked an old lady into giving him her life's savings which she thought was for a stray-dog home. With that money, he bought his warehouses in Manhattan and started his business of dealing in smuggled goods.

After the Shorings Bank incident (see 'Plot' below) he was hypnotised by Rocky and told by Molly and Rocky to be kind and good. He was also hypnotised to have a German accent, as his original Chicago accent might be recognized by police (he told the police about the Shorings Bank incident on the phone).

Molly, in order to make him a better person,told him that he could have a budgerigar whenever he did a good deed.Between the first and second books, he managed to get twenty budgerigars by doing thoughtful deeds.His German accent (which Molly Moon hypnotized him to have) wore off at the end of the second book, and he now speaks in his original scruffy Chicago accent.

Primo Cell

To miss Lines Primo Cell is a man,a hypnotist, father of Molly and good at heart, who was unfortunately hypnotised by Cornelius Logan (who was in turn by the Maharaja of Waqt) to control celebrities and to become president and build a time-traveling crystal mine for his master's master while killing people who got in his way. He is very rich (money accumulated from his brands and products while being controlled) and ran for the position of American President. Primo became a different man when he was released by Molly from his bonds and showed much remorse for what he had done and he even confessed to his daughter (though unknowingly) and her friends that he now felt very lonely as he had no real friends and was loved by no one.

Maharaja of Waqt

The Maharaja of Waqt is a power-crazy man who kidnaps 11-year-old Molly and her dog Petula, as well as four other younger Mollies and Petula as a puppy.

Fang owns a machine that can suck knowledge out of a person's head and put it into another's. The Princess hates everything ugly and old. Molly finally hypnotises her to serve the true King and his family. She has a speech impediment that makes her say most of her "r"s as "w"s, and she pronounces the "th" sound as "d".

Agnes Adderstone is a bone skinny, mean woman who has false teeth. She is believed to have gray hair and black eyes.

Miss Adderstone is the headmistress of Hardwick House, and dislikes children, especially babies. She dislikes Molly Moon especially out of all the orphanage's children. Later on in the book, Molly hypnotises her to love planes and flying.

Agnes was absent during Book 2, but returned in Book 3 when Molly traveled back in time to return her past selves to their proper times. She was instructed to fart and burp in company, as well as to be kind to the children under her care when she was very drunk.

She was last seen flying in the Italian Alps with Edna at the end of Book 1.

She also owned Molly's dog Petula before Molly rescued her. Miss. Adderstone's current status is unknown.

Adderstone favors Hazel, because it is learned that she looked like her when she was dropped off on the doorstep of the Hardwick House.

In the beginning of the book 1, Adderstone hates Molly Moon. Later on, Molly hypnotizes her to love her and planes and flying.


Edna (surname unknown) is a mean, grumpy old woman. She is the cook of Hardwick House and was in the Navy as a sailor. She is rumored to have a tattoo of a sailor on her thigh. Later on in the book, Molly hypnotizes her to develop a passion for Italian cooking and the country of Italy itself. Molly also hypnotizes Edna to favor Molly and cooked good food for all the orphans except for Mrs. Adderstone and Hazel Hackersly (see Orphanage Children) and her friends.

Minor characters

Davina Nuttel

Davina Nuttel is a spoiled, not particularly pretty, child star whose lead part in Stars on Mars was stolen by Molly Moon. She has blue eyes and has a weak ability to hypnotise; however, she is not conscious of this fact. After Molly left New York, Davina got her part back (as referenced in the second book).

In the second book, she was kidnapped by Primo Cell. After Cell's plan was stopped for good, she was supposedly hypnotized by Sinclair (Primo Cell's adopted son) to study as Forest's helper (It doesn't actually say that in the book). Her current status (as of Book 3-4) is unknown.

Ms. Trinklebury

Ms. Trinklebury is a kind, stuttering old widow from the village of Hardwick. She is believed to have fading blond hair and watery blue eyes. She raised Molly and Rocky when they were babies. After the two of them were out of diapers, she only came back once a week to do the cleaning and the laundry. However, after the Shorings Bank incident, she came back to the orphanage for good. It is also revealed that she is an orphan.

In the second book, she and Nockman fell in love and became engaged. She appears only episodically in the third book and doesn't turn up in the fourth one as Molly is in the past/ future for most of these books.

Mrs. Toadley

Mrs. Toadley is a chubby, half-bald woman who is 'blubbery-faced'. She is the teacher of the class that Molly and Rocky are in, and is notorious for having a sneezing fit whenever she gets worked up.

Her status at the end of the first book is unknown, but she was probably not fired due to what Gemma and Gerry told Molly in one of the last chapters of Book 1. However by Book 2 she was fired as Molly has hypnotized her to tell everyone that she was a horrid bullying teacher.

Orphanage Children

There are seven children at Hardwick House (besides Molly and Rocky). They are:

Hazel Hackersly is a thirteen-year-old girl. She has not-that-pretty looks and a whiny voice. She is the most favored by Miss Adderstone out of all the orphanage children. While Molly and Rocky were away, she took over Miss Adderstone's bedroom. At the end of the book, it is revealed that her mother was a drunk and her father was violent. When Hazel first came to the orphanage, Molly was kind to her, but she pushed her away saying that her parents had loved her, and they had died tragically. She was actually mean to Molly because she was jealous that Rocky and Molly had Mrs. Trinklebury to love them as a mother. In the second book, she dyes her hair platinum blonde and gets a walk-on part in an American film; thus, she has a fake American accent.

Roger Fibbin is a twelve-year-old boy. He is Hazel Hackersly's informant and spy, and updates her on all the goings-on behind her back. While Molly and Rocky were away, he took over the sanitorium after a big fight with Hazel. In the second book, it was revealed that he was hypnotised after seeing an argument between Cornelius and Lucy Logan. About a year later, Molly restored him to his normal self.

Ruby Able is a five-year-old girl and one of the few people who is actually nice to Molly at Hardwick House.

In the second book, it is revealed that she sticks her pictures up with bubble gum.

Jinx Eames is a five-year old boy who calls Molly by her real name. He is good friends with Ruby.

Gordon Boils is the second oldest at the Hardwick House. He is a messenger of Hazel Hackersly. Gordon invented the names 'Drono', 'Zono' and 'Bog Eyes' for Molly, and it is later discovered that these were key abilities for hypnotists.He is very strong.

Gemma Patel is the best friend of Gerry. Gemma is seven years old in first and first half of the second book. She was the one who found the copy of the hypnotism book in Book 2.

At the end Gemma is the one who tells Molly all that has happened at the Hardwick House.

Lucy Logan is the great-granddaughter of Dr. Logan, the hypnotist who wrote the book which Molly discovered. In the first book, she is portrayed as the librarian in Briersville Library and has a major role in leading her daughter to discover her hypnotic talent (using hypnosis herself). It is was revealed in the second book that Lucy Logan had been hypnotized, put in a deep trance and controlled for eleven years by her twin brother, Cornelius Logan. It was also revealed that Lucy Logan is the mother of Molly and Micky Moon, and her husband is Primo Cell. Primo Cell (who was also hypnotized by Cornelius Logan who in turn was hypnotized by the Maharaja of Waqt) is also a hypnotist.

Cornelius Logan

Cornelius Logan, a twin to Lucy Logan, is a brilliant hypnotist who hypnotised and controlled Primo Cell for eleven years so that Primo would become President of America and he could rule the world. He had stolen Molly and put her in the orphanage, because he was jealous of Lucy's happiness and wanted to ruin her life. Molly later hypnotised Cornelius to believe that he was a lamb. In the third book, it was revealed that Cornelius himself had been controlled by the Maharaja of Waqt at a very young age. Cornelious has yet to be released from his trance, but not in any of the four books released.

Nurse Meekles

Nurse Meekles is a kind, friendly woman at the palace where Princess Fang ruled. She always respected Molly and had watched Micky in his early childhood. Nurse Meekles actually helped the twins escape using a secret laundry shoot going to the outside of the palace. Her husband's name is Axel, also known as Professor Selkeem, which is just Professor Meekles backwards. Her first name is Ai Mu.

Prof. Selkeem/Axel

The degenerated and good mad child genius formerly known as the good hypnotist, Axel. He is the husband of Nurse Meekles and lost his hypnotic abilities - a side effect of travelling to the Bubble of Light at the beginning of time far too often. His skin is described as being like leather and has a habit of drinking tomato juice which appears like blood to Molly, leading her to believe that he is evil. He also consumes rotten eggs and moldy pieces of toast, and is said to keep shriveled hearts in his treehouse laboratory, but they just turn out to be sun-dried tomatoes. He always speaks in riddles and rhymes, and likes talking to himself. After he lost his hypnotic skills as well as his mind and he became ugly in the Princess' eyes, he was sent to live with the Zooeys (the mutated former Royal family) as his servants. There, he experimented harmlessly, though crazily. He has a some pet dognakes (snakes with Labrador's heads), and his favorite one is called Schnapps. He loathes Princess Fang, and distrusts deeply of Wildgust, a member of the mutated Royal family, since he believes he is evil. His intentions are misunderstood for a great part of the story.
