Cast of Characters - The Continuing Case of Manny Tippitoes
Marcella Higgins
Marcella Higgins is the daughter of Ward and Violet Higgins and lives with her parents in a suburb of the city in the same house where her father grew up.  Her uncle Morris is a detective in the city's police force.  Morris, who Marcella has nicknamed Uncle Detective, has given Marcella a set of notebooks and encouraged her to keep a written diary.
  Although initially skeptical of the need to record the events in her life, Marcella has recently become convinced of the necessity of using her personal journal to detail the strange events happening around the city to her and her friends.  Events that adults cannot seem to notice.
  Marcella collects books in the Magnolia Berwyn, Girl Detective series.  She recently found a copy of Magnolia Berwyn and the Poisoner's Apprentice at a church sale and found the guide to poisonous plants inside the book to be most useful in a visit to the City Conservatory.
  Marcella's favorite band is Dumbcane and she is hoping that her parents will let her see them play when they come to town. Her favorite drink is Ginger Cream Ale, which can only be found at Lucky's Diner in the city.
