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!
