Character Name


From Meerkat Christmas and Meerkat Mail, Sunny is a little meerkat from an enormous family who is always on the move.
Question: Which three words best describe you?
Answer: Adventurous, alert, well-travelled (does that count as three?)
Question: What is your greatest fear?
Answer: I think it’s probably jackals, or running out of stamps.
Question: What is your favourite Christmas food?

Answer: Nothing can beat a roast reptile, followed by a lovely buggy pudding. As long as there are no Brussels sprouts I'm happy.

Question: What is your favourite snack?
Answer: Fried scorpions. They're loads tastier than some of the horrible stuff my cousins the mongoose/mongeese eat!
Question: What is your favourite colour?
Answer: The special shade of red that the sand in the desert turns just at sunset. A bit like Santa's outfit. Beautiful!
Question: How do you relax?
Answer: I lay back on a sand dune and just close my eyes (as long as someone is on look out duty!)

Question: How do you like to spend Christmas?
Answer: My perfect Christmas is spent with my family stuffing myself on spicy ants, and making Christmas crafts.
Question: What would your super-power be?
Answer: I’m already pretty good at digging, so I think I’d like to be able to fly. I'd also like to be like my hero Santa and be able to fly around the whole world in just one night.
Question: What’s your most treasured possession?
Answer: I really love my battered old suitcase. It’s come on all my travels with me, and when I’m at home my little brothers and sisters like to use it as a bed.

Question: What's the best Christmas present ever?
Answer: The best Christmas present I ever got, was a lovely jumper knitted by my penguin friends. The best present I ever gave was a bag of Brussels sprouts (all the less for me!).
Question: Are you an early bird, or a night owl?
Answer: I’m more of an early bird. I’m actually a little bit scared of the dark, so like to be safely tucked up in my burrow with my family at night.
