Zac the Zealous Zucchini By Jo Kemp
This is a story all about Zac and yes, he’s a zucchini.
But what on earth IS a zucchini?
A ZOO-KHEE-NEE is how you say it, but that doesn’t tell you what it is?
Well, Zac was one and he loved anything Italian…
“Mama Mia!” he gushed tossing his head, shaking the enormous flower that grew out of it.
I am pure THEATRE.
“I am an actor!” he said dramatically taking long green strides around the kitchen. “From the famous ZOO-KHEE-NEE family
“No you’re not,” muttered Eva, “You’re a glorified courgette; one step away from a marrow.”
“A marrow!’ gasped Zac feigning a swoon, ‘Why, the very idea!”
But he’d show them what a good actor he was although firstly, he needed an AUDIENCE and it seemed everyone was too busy. However, someone was watching…
… a large fly on the wall.
“We’ll watch anything!” said Freddie.
Boris was keen to start rehearsals. “Imagine you’re a tree,” he said helpfully.
‘I don’t want to be a tree!!” thought Zac, “I want to be Zorro!! Or Batman!”
But he had to start somewhere so he thought tree thoughts.
“I am a tree…” he chanted, “I’m wood.”
(And he was very wooden).
‘I’m thinking bark,” he continued but when someone sniggered and said ‘woof’ the spell was broken.
“Oh this is hopeless!” he flounced.
“Why don’t you put on a proper play?” piped up Tina, “I happen to have one here.”
‘It’s about a princess who’s been captured by a wicked witch and is saved by a handsome prince….
…. A handsome Prince called PRINCE ZAC!
“That’s a fantastic story!” beamed Zac and I can be Prince Zac!”
“Exactly!” agreed Tina and grinned. “And I’ll be the Wicked Witch.”
But what about the Princess?
“How about Greta?” said Boris producing Greta from out of the cupboard.
“No no!” protested Greta, “I want to be alone…”
“And so you will be,” said Tina, “You’ll be my prisoner then Prince Zac will save you.”
Soon the stage was set. The curtain was down, the audience hushed and the actors waited nervously in the wings.
“We need someone to raise the curtain!” hissed Tina in a loud stage whisper.
“I’ll do it,” said Freddie and, taking up two corners, he buzzed up to the ceiling and hovered.
A silence fell. The curtain went up revealing Zac, center stage and frozen.
All he could do was blink. And all you could hear was a pin drop.
But then Tina the Wicked Witch came up behind Zac and burst a large paper bag. BANG!
“WHAT’D DO THAT FOR!!!” he spluttered.
”It’s a sound effect” she laughed. “Thunder… or didn’t you read the script?”
No. Zac hadn’t bothered so now he’d have to busk it.
Greta came on stage, “Save me, save me” she cried on cue.
‘Save you from what?” said Zac just as someone let out a gigantic sneeze.
It was Freddie who, reaching for a hankie, let go of the curtain which came crashing down…..
Crashing down on Greta! But, in the nick of time, Zac dived across the stage and saved Greta from being buried under a mountain of velvet!!
The audience went wild, stood up and applauded loudly. Zac the handsome prince had saved Greta the beautiful princess and the wicked witch was lost forever (well, at least for the time being).
“Was that supposed to happen?” asked Boris suspiciously backstage.
“Oh yes,” lied Zac nonchalantly and shook his flower. “I may not have brought the curtain down, but I certainly brought the house down.”

Here’s a story all about Raj. And yes, he’s a radiator. It didn’t matter how hot it was, it could never be too hot for Raj - so it was just as well he was a radiator. “Bring me damp towels!” he called from across the hall, “Bring me wet washing and socks!” Anything that was cold.. or damp… or just plain soaking wet.. loved Raj. And there was always room for one more on top. Timmy – his friend - had been hanging out on the line and had got frozen. “I think..…… I think…I’m getting AH…AH… ATISHOO… …..A cold.” He sneezed. - Bedtime Story for Kids, Raj EP01
This is a story all about Dorothy and yes, she’s a doughnut. Dorothy loved dancing. She knew the names of all the dances – the waltz, the tango, the foxtrot. She even knew the monster mash and the jive. But she was a TERRIBLE dancer. It was because of her shape – and her shoes – and she couldn’t change her shape (and she certainly wasn’t going to change her shoes). “OOOOH OOOH… I love to dance!” she sang as she tripped and crashed around : Bedtime Story for Kids, Dorothy EP02
This is a story all about Eva and yes, she’s an egg timer. Because timing eggs only takes minutes, Eva had a lot of time on her hands. It gave her time to think so she thought a lot about chocolate. Bars of chocolate, boxes of chocolates, chocolate biscuits, chocolate cake – anything so long as it was chocolate. But there had to be more to life than chocolate? : Bedtime Story for Kids, Eva EP03
This is a story all about Boris and yes, he’s a book. “You can ask Boris about anything,” said Malcolm “He can tell you why custard is yellow, why frogs are green and why milk shakes. Boris knew the name of everything, the size of everything, where it was from – where it was going to and how to say it in Latin. He also knew the best jokes. : Bedtime Story for Kids, Boris EP04
This is a story all about Cameron and yes, he’s a cabinet. Cameron had seen better days; better days than the days he now spent in the box room. It was like a box and full of boxes. “See this scratch,” he said and Malcolm the moth looked up from his lunch - a large blue cardigan. “I got it in Burma…. Or was it Bermuda?” : Bedtime Story for Kids, Cameron EP05
This is story all about Queenie and yes, she’s a quilt. Queenie was a quilt who spent most of her time resting. On the whole, she was happy except for her one big problem. A quilt should be fat and warm and snugly but Queenie wasn’t. She was cold and thin and quivery. “Nothing I do seems to make me any fatter,” she complained to her friend Alice. “Why don’t you try eating something?” suggested Alice. “Eating? Eating what?”: Bedtime Story for Kids, Queenie EP06
This is a story all about Nigel and yes, he’s a napkin. Is it a bird?” Is it a bee? No, it was Nigel turning himself into a bird or a bee because - being a napkin - he could fold himself into any shape he liked. And it always had to be ‘just so’ for Nigel. Perfectly straight lines and sharp creases, which made him irritatingly… Niggly: Bedtime Story for Kids, Nigel EP07
This is a story all about Zac and yes, he’s a zucchini. But what on earth IS a zucchini? A ZOO-KHEE-NEE is how you say it, but that doesn’t tell you what it is? Well Zac was one and he loved anything Italian… “Mama Mia!” he gushed tossing his head, shaking the enormous flower that grew out of it. I am pure THEATRE. : Bedtime Story for Kids, Zac EP08
