Apple is a nice squirrel from Anemone Wood. She is the fostermother of Urchin and later married Filbert. She always made a drink with mint and apple, she says it will do animals well, but no one likes it because it tastes bad.
Apple is described as a plump squirrel with thin fur. She is a dark red squirrel and have a bit problems to walk and in book one she is told to have a dark brown eye colour.
PersonalityEditShe is very kind, and she loves babies. She is known to talk a lot without stopping, and some animals even try to avoid her conversations. She often talks about the "old days", which many animals find annoying.
Urchin tells her that it's alright that he has to work on boats, but Apple isn't convinced.
Apple also scolds Gleaner and Crackle when they tell Urchin that he should have been culled at birth.
Urchin helps Apple get ready for the night of riding stars, but then Crispin invites Urchin to Brother Fir's turret in the tower. Apple encourages Urchin to go, and he does. When Urchin comes back to Anemone Wood, Apple cries, but tells Urchin to become a page.
She later are in the wedding to Husk an Lady Aspen when Padra is dancing with her.
After Urchin is falling down from a window he is landing on her.
