Who lives in Happy House? There are two sets of characters in Happy House, and they inhabit parallel worlds within the house. These are: the world of everyday family life, which we experience via the 'real' human family - Mum, Dad, the twins (Polly and Jack), and Daisy, the baby; and the fantasy 'mouse world' featuring Spike and Ruby. Although the mice live behind the skirting and under the floors, they often venture into the rooms of the house, particularly to tease the family cat, Otto, who interacts with both sets of characters.
