Glenda The Gregarious Gherkin, A Free Books For Kids

This free book for kids is all about Glenda and yes, she’s a gherkin.

A gherkin is a kind of cucumber who likes a jar and is usually pickled; Glenda was one such gherkin. Fun, funny and highly sociable.

In other words, she was GREGARIOUS (GREE-GAIR-RE-OSS is how you say it). She had a reason to climb out of her jar every morning and that reason was to meet more FRIENDS!

“Come on girls,” she’d say to her sisters, “It’s far too nice to be stood up in bed all day”

But her sisters just pressed their noses to the jar and yawned.

Glenda was such a ‘morning’ person.

“Let’s DO something today,” she urged.

“Okay, off you go then,” chorused her sisters and therein lay the problem.

Glenda, being so gregarious, couldn’t bear to go anywhere on her own.

But then she saw Spicer the spider dribbling a ball. “Fancy a bit of a kick about?” he asked.

“Not really,” she replied, “It wouldn’t be fair when you have eight legs and I only have two but if we could even up the leg count, then maybe I might”.

So, while Glenda went off to round up her sisters, Spicer rounded up Fedora, the pretty pink flamingo. She had two very long legs!

They counted each teams’ legs. Glenda with her four sisters totalled ten legs and Spicer with his eight and Fedora’s two, totalled ten legs as well.

‘Let the game begin!” And someone somewhere blew a whistle.

It was an odd game of football. Spicer had the ball most of the time – well he had most of the legs – and Glenda’s sisters could help standing shoulder to shoulder in goal. It seemed old habits die hard.

Then Fedora tripped and in doing so, gave the ball a hearty kick.

“Hooray!” shouted someone and began chanting.

The ball shot off through the rhododendrons and through the open door of the potting shed. “I’ll get it!” volunteered Glenda chasing after it.

It was very dark inside the shed. And then something dreadful happened…

The door creaked and slammed shut.

Glenda was ALONE, locked in the shed.

Meanwhile, everyone wondered where Glenda had gone? “Maybe she didn’t want to play anymore?” suggested her sisters hopefully.

Spicer was more concerned about his ball!

“I’ll go and look for her,” called down Fedora.

Glenda trembled, as she stood alone in the potting shed. She was frightened because she was ALONE!

“Personally, I think it’s nice to have a bit of ME time,” tweeted a little voice suddenly.

Glenda looked around and couldn’t see anyone. “I’m here,” said the voice, “I’m here sitting on your shoulder.”

Glenda turned her long neck sideways and yes, there he was. A little Blue Bird sitting on her shoulder “Where did you come from?” she asked, relieved to have a friend.

“Oh, I’m always around somewhere,” he replied. “You must never think you’re alone because everyone has a Blue Bird.”

Just then the door creaked open and Fedora poked her head inside. “Oh, there you are!” she exclaimed.

Glenda was so happy to be out in the sunshine again.

The game was over, and Spicer had gone home for his tea, so she told her sisters all about the little Blue Bird.

“Look,” she said, “He’s sitting on my shoulder.”

The sisters looked. But couldn’t see any sign of the little Blue Bird.

“How odd?” thought Glenda. She could see him plain as day, but they couldn’t.

“Not to worry,” she smiled as she watched the Blue Bird flutter around her.

It didn’t really matter if her sisters could see him or not. What mattered was that she could.

And she knew from that day on that if she ever felt alone or felt afraid, the little Blue Bird would be right there with her.

“Even when I’m in a pickle…” she thought.

And that was quite funny coming from a gherkin!

G is for Glenda: Glenda the Gregarious Gerkin
Being fun-loving and highly sociable, Glenda can only be described as GREGARIOUS. Isn’t that a FANTASTIC word to use!

Being bored standing up in bed all day – Glenda lives with her sisters in a jar with standing room only – she likes to get out and about and what better way to enjoy exercise than by having a friendly game of football.

However, it isn’t that easy with such an eclectic mix of characters so to make the teams fair, it all comes down to a leg count. All is going well until Glenda gets locked in the shed…

Name Meaning: Glenda – from Welsh word, glân, meaning ‘pure, clean, holy’, and da, meaning ‘good’) More Glenda on Wikipedia

I bought this book for my nephew who loves his short stories and has an active imagination. This book is fabulous for feeding his imagination and being packed with 26 short stories, you can easily go back to favourites again and again.

The book is well illustrated and well written, excellent value for money.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 April 2021

There’s something immensely satisfying about the letters of the alphabet. They offer no limit to literary invention, and to base a book on the twenty-six letters in the English language one can always be sure of one thing – that there is a beginning and an end, and how vital that is with a children’s story, be it read to them or by them!    The title page reveals that the book was something of a labour of love.
The author’s son, illustrator, designer, sound producer and animator, LUKE KEMP so enjoyed the stories of the handful of ‘letter’ characters his mother told him as a small child that he pressed her to complete all twenty- six, so – quite touchingly – here they are!  Read more
