Ollie Marmot

Ollie Marmot, Jr. – friend of Jack and Suzy, twin brother of Emily

Ollie Marmot knows every tunnel under Duckport and has burrowed quite a few secret ones. He thinks he is tough but the girls think he is cute, which drives him crazy. Ollie Marmot, Jr. is a friendly and mischievous marmot boy. He lives with his dad Ollie, Sr., mom Martha, little brother Elwood, and twin sister Emily in a very cozy burrow beneath a huge old oak tree in Marmot Meadows, not very far from downtown Duckport. Their home is called Marmot Manor. The family has their home in he traditional marmot manner (if you can excuse the pun!) below ground, in a network of lovely tunnels and burrows.

Ollie loves to dig tunnels all over town. He is not at all afraid of the dark. He loves to collect rocks, and has earthworms for pets. Ollie also loves to run and chase, and has a big admiration for Jack Quacker.

Ollie is Emily’s twin, so he is exactly the same age as she is, or, if he were a human boy, somewhere between 7 and 10.
