Beano Superstars – Sidney Pye

People often joke that the only way people can tell and me my twin sister Toots apart is by seeing which one of us has a bow in our hair. 

I couldn’t wear a bow in my hair, anyway. It’s too messy and I can never keep it smoothed down. 

Toots was born first and she think that makes her the best of us, but we’re just the same really – although I think she’s a bit bossy and claims to be the leader of the Bash Street Kids. It could be or it might be Danny. I can’t make my mind up, but that’s just me in general. She’s my best friend, I know that for certain.

My other friends include Danny and Spotty, and we get into all sorts of scrapes and adventures. I love playing pranks on my friends, too. My favourite parts of the week are the weekends and I love school holidays. I get a bit bored at school and wish I could I could do what I wanted all the time. I just like to have fun, and that’s not something that happens in my class 2B. 

I live on the top floor of the Bash Street flats with my mum and dad – Andrew and Sarah – Toots, and our dog Peeps. I’ve actually got loads of pets, but they all stay on the roof. I’ve got so many birds – shout out Patrick the pigeon – as well as insects and reptiles, they may as well call it the Beanotown zoo. You won’t find any spiders up there, though. Nope. Not a fan, really.
