Anna’s pineapple

My gorgeous little granddaughter, Anna, turned two last Sunday.

This is a story I wrote for her in celebration of her big day.

It is based on a real event that occurred a week or two earlier. She just could not understand why her grandfather Bob had scoffed all the pineapple and left no more for her. He, of course, didn’t realise that the pineapple had been left for later, and thought that he was merely finishing off the leftovers.

Anna’s Aunty Beckii was most amused, as was the rest of the family,  that Bob had eaten it all as he had already earned the title of “Bob the scoffer” by Anna’s big brother Artie. I must add that Aunty Beckii and Uncle Glenn had both given Artie considerable encouragement in bestowing this title!

I am very grateful to Bernadette Drent who illustrated the story so well with only 2 days notice. I think she did a fantastic job and really captured the humour of the story.

Have a read and let me know what you think. I’d love to know if it deserves a readership wider than that of family members.

      Luckily for us Anna likes both pineapple and strawberries too! Bernadette did a great job on the illustrations and I was very grateful she could do them at such short notice. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. 🙂
