Q is for Queenie: Queenie the Quivering Quilt
Queenie is a quilt who spends most of her time resting. She’s happy except for one big problem which is that a quilt should be fat and warm and snugly.
But Queenie isn’t. She’s cold and thin and quivery. So, with the help of her friend Alice, Queenie tries eating different things but with disastrous results.
Then she finds out about feathers so despite being rather afraid, she waits until it’s dark then ventures off to the park to seek the help of the ducks. They’re a bit alarmed when they see her but when they realise her plight, they’re only too happy to help such a sweet and gentle old lady.
Queenie name meaning. The name Queenie is an affectionate or pet use, of the term queen and is thought to be derived from the Old English word ‘cwen’, meaning ‘woman’ rather than a reference to the monarch or his wife. Names Queenie
