In Curtsies and Conspiracies the main place the story takes place is on the dirigible, whether its going to classes or roaming the halls passed hours this is where the story takes place. For the most part the setting is on the dirigible but it is also in London at the end of the book.
This is Sophronias Mechanimal dog named Bumbersnoot.
My favorite part of the story is when "Madame Spetuna" comes and tells everyone's fortunes. She cheers up Agatha, makes Monique mad, and, helps Sophronia. But, the way she does all this is quite funny because, its her personality that makes it great. She is spontaneous and doesn't care about anything but the money.
