"I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves! And this is how it goes!"

~Jonah singing to Abby in Bad Hair Day

Jonah is one of the main protagonists in the Whatever After series. He is Abby's little brother who travels into different fairy tales with her through the magic mirror in their basement. He is currently seven years old.


Jonah is very adventurous and energetic. He is the complete opposite of Abby; he loves adventures and always wants to have fun and explore. He is also known to have an obsession with ketchup, as he puts it on everything (french toast, mac and cheese, plain bread, etc.) which often disgusts Abby. 


Jonah has messy, short brown hair and green eyes, a small nose and a heart-shaped face, just like his older sister, Abby.


Jonah is the son of Bonnie and Dave and the younger brother of Abby. Jonah used to live in Naperville, Illinois, until he moved to Smithville due to his parents starting their own law firm. His Nana, a literature professor in Chicago, used to read him and his sister lots of fairy tales by according to Abby he only listened 5% of the time.
