Personality and CharacterEdit
Jenky is known of being too good-natured to offend or be offended.
He was a small hamster-sized man, stretching the length from the tip of her middle finger to the heel of her palm. Dressed in raggedy clothes with the look of a bird about him—eyes wide set, hook nose, plump body, limbs were twig-thin. His hair was a tangle of short brown curls and for a rectangular wire-framed eyeglasses. He appeared to be in his mid-forties.
- In bird form: grayish brown

Events in the Series (spoilery area) Edit
“Big City Littles" in Tapping the Dream Tree: Children's author, Sheri Piper, awoke one morning to a little man sitting on her pillow. She knew what he was since she wrote a children's story book about Littles. She just never expected them to be real. Rather than being alarmed, she felt calm. She agreed to help him and his clan to find out how to become birds again but declined their last wish that he offered her as a reward—believing that people should earn what they get and magic wishes were creepy, not to be trusted. Jenky knew then that they sought out the right person. Sheri sets about the task of helping with the help of Meran Kelledy. ~ "Big City Littles"
- "I Just don't like the idea of magic wishes. There's something creepy about them. I think we should earn what we get, not have it handed to us on a silver platter."
- That earned her a warm smile.
- "I think we definitely chose the right person to help us," he said. —— Sheri Piper, Jenky Wood
