BREIF FACTS ABOUT MAE SHERMAN
Mae Sherman is the younger sister of Nikki Sherman. Mae often goes to day care in the books so Nikki can spend time with Flora, Ruby and Oliva. Mae was six years old during the first half of the seiries and seven during the second making her in first and second grade. Not many pictures are seen of Mae just like the other characters, including the main ones but on book 7 KEEPING SECRETS where Mae, Nikki and Flora are shown posing with Daisy Dear and Paw-Paw for the parade to raise money for SHEELTERING ARMS and Mae had pigtails, a pink shirt, jeans and her hair was caramel-colored like Nikki's. Mae really seems to like hot dogs, this was shown in book 4 BEST FRIENDS when she hungrily ordered one for lunch at the 350th birthday party.

WELCOME TO CAMDEN FALLS AND EARLY SEIRIES
Not much is seen of Mae in WELCOME TO CAMDEN FALLS but we know that she is Nikki's six year old sister who is about to enter first grade and spends a lot of time with Nikki at home feeding Paw-Paw or going out with Mrs. Sherman sometimes when Mrs. Sherman felt up to it. Mr. Sherman scared Mae a lot before he left making her cry once in NEEDLE AND THREAD book 2 once when she and Nikki were feeding Paw-Paw and the other stray dogs. Mae also was confused why kids would tease she and Nikki on the bus because of their ragged clothes.
