Jessica, Richard, and Cora stayed the night at Arthur's House to attend Aunt Lucy's wedding the next day. Cora shows D.W. her locket that Aunt Lucy gave her, which she then accidentally breaks and blames D.W. She wore a special dress and crown for her job as the flower girl of the wedding. At the church, Cora yells at Arthur to smile but the distraction makes him lose his balance and throw the wedding ring into the air, landing in the piano's pipe organ. While Cora refused to retrieve the ring and get her dress dirty, D.W. successfully found it, leading Aunt Lucy to make D.W. the new flower girl and let her wear Cora's crown.
Though she only appears once in the series, Cora is portrayed as being spoiled, annoying, and rather rude to the Read family children, especially D.W., but acts like a nice girl when the adults are around. Her bratty nature is later exposed at a wedding.
Cora is an aardvark with a light brown complexion. She wears a blue dress, long white socks, and red-and-white sneakers. She has brown, short, curly hair. She wore a lavender dress and white shoes to the wedding since she was the flower girl.
