   Belle Tent
    Belle Tent
Belle was a full-on female, with a big appetite for life.
    But her over-enthusiasm would often go awry,  causing
    commotion, cacophony and chaos where e'er she roamed...

    Belle wreaks havoc!

    Belle made her parents' lives hell. All they wanted was to
    see their young daughter enjoying the dignified delights
    of life, but she simply crashed,  banged and walloped her
    way though every new hobby or distraction they found
    for her. Gymnastics, dance, music - Belle banged and
    bashed through them all. And her pipe-smoking Pa
    and befuddled Ma bore the brunt...

    Our Belle wasn't a Tomboy, though. Indeed, she seemed
    to like the girly things she was encouraged to do. She just
    had her own brash way of going about them. And good for
    her, says we, 'cos
Belle was bringing us a taste of
    Girl Power - Fleetway-style!
