Ida lived in the cupboard under the stairs and didn’t like going out much because wherever she walked, everyone stared…

“AND I HATE IT WHEN EVERYONE STARES AT ME!”

“But nevertheless…you should get out more,” advised Ivy the iron and Ida had to admit she did get rather bored…

…bored stiff.

“Ironing board stiff!” and she laughed at her own little joke.

So, when no one was around, Ida ventured into the hall.

She tried a few steps but her legs just folded beneath her.

“You’re not very good at walking,” said a voice from nowhere then a GREAT BIG SPIDER called Spicer, dropped down beside her.

“Please don’t make fun of me,” said Ida.

“How could I do that!” chuckled Spicer. “Take a look at me! I’ve got eight legs – or are they are arms? I’ve got two heads and one body – although maybe it’s the other way around?”

“Oh yes,” he continued, “And I’ve got too many eyes to know what to look at and if that’s not bad enough….

…..I’m hairy all over!”

Ida laughed – he was very funny – and decided her legs were indeed very much like his…

“Although mine aren’t hairy!” she was quick to point out.

“Would you like me to help you with your walking?” asked Spicer kindly and Ida nodded.

So, Spicer helped her and after a few falls and mishaps, she was soon striding up and down the hall.

“It’s a pity there’s no-one here to see you?” he said and then had an idea.

He knew just how to get everyone to come and see Ida and headed for the ATTIC at the top of the stairs.

KNOCK KNOCK!!
KNOCK KNOCK!!

Kids Books Online, Spicer the spider has an idea

On hearing this sound, everyone came into the hall and starred up at the trapdoor. They took no notice of Ida because the KNOCK KNOCK that came from within made them all tremble in FRIGHT!

You see… No-one EVER talked about the Attic! It was the place everyone feared….

….it was the place you went to when NO-ONE WANTED YOU ANYMORE!

“We should do something!” said Ida, “Someone may be trapped.”

“Someone?” said Alice, “You mean like a BOOGY-MAN or a ZOMBIE more like!”

“Or a WHERWOLF!” added Ivy.

“I don’t know but we HAVE to do something!” said Ida bravely, “So if no-one else will go, I will.”

Everyone turned and stared at her (and remember, Ida, HATED to be stared at). “You?” they said shaking their heads, “but you can’t even walk, let alone climb stairs!”

“Is that so?” said Ida angrily, “Well you just watch me!”

Then much to everyone’s surprise, Ida clattered up the hall and taking two giant strides at a time reached the top of the stairs in a jiffy!

And what’s more… with one tremendous effort, she jumped up and pushed open the trapdoor. And it wasn’t a WEREWOLF that jumped out.

It wasn’t a ZOMBIE or a BOOGY-MAN…

It was a GHOST!!!

Everyone screamed and ran for somewhere to hide.

“Hang on a minute,” said Ida as the GHOST fluttered to the floor, “This isn’t a ghost…. it’s nothing more than a silly old tablecloth!” and as she peered up into the black hole of the attic, Spicer looked down and winked at her.

Everyone cheered Ida for solving the mystery and for the way she could now run and jump… But then it came again… KNOCK KNOCK…

“Who’s there?” asked Alice.

“I am!” laughed Spicer as he dropped down beside her and now it was Alice’s turn to jump – which she did…

But not as high as Ida did.

The End.

About Ida the Incredible Ironing Board

Read Aloud Book, Percy The Peeping Pot Plant In hair rollers

I is for Ida: Ida the Incredible Ironing Board
Ironing boards are a really weird shape. They have legs that fold up under a long, flat board and as it’s been proved (and if you’ve ever tried it), they’re not very good at walking; they frequently collapse!

Ida is no exception “…and I don’t like it when anyone stares!” she says in her story.

But when Spicer the Spider compares his legs to hers, she doesn’t feel quite so bad.

She learns to walk – after a fashion – and when she thinks someone’s in trouble, she forgets all about being awkward and is the first to arrive at the top of the stairs…

Q: Who invented the ironing board? A: Sarah Boone (1832–1904). She was an American inventor who on April 26, 1892, obtained the United States patent number 473,563 for her improvements to the ironing board. Boone’s ironing board was designed to improve the quality of ironing sleeves and the bodies of women’s garments.

Name Meaning: Ida  –  A female name from a Germanic word id, meaning “labour or work”. Alternately, it may be related to the name of the Old Norse goddess Iðunn. Ida name 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
