The nosy neighbor of the Smoralls seems more like a throwback to the past than a person from today. She dresses in elaborate outfits with frills and ribbons, like those of the 19th century. Large hats with decorations on them are one of her favorite accessories.
Her attitudes toward the world are as outdated as her outfits, which is why Holly believes that Ms. Hubbleworth was the one who reported Grandpa Nikolas to the police.
Ms. Hubbleworth is of the opinion that a child should not grow up all alone with an old man,
especially one as crazy as she considered him to be.
Ms. Hubbleworth doesn’t have an imaginative bone in her body, so her whole life is turned upside down when her nosiness leads her to follow the kids into the fantasy world of Magora.
