Ghosts, Goats and Gannets . . . . . (Be Warned this fairy tale includes Guillemots)
The Slightly eccentric A to Z blogging adventure of unknown and rather unpopular Modern fairy tales
G Ghosts, Goats and Gannets
Granny Grumpy was a Grumpy Granny eating gruel and grumbling about ghosts, goats and gannets galloping about in the garden ruining her greens, Granny Grumpy liked fresh Greens in her Gruel. One day the Ghosts Gannets and Goats said “why are you so grumpy granny you were always good and gave us grapes and gooseberries”. Granny Grumpy said “My grandchildren do not get to see me due to the great gargantuan distance away they live”. The Ghosts, Gannets and Goats said “Gosh we will help, we will go and get your grandchildren as a group”, So the goats let the Grandchildren sit on their backs while the gannets guided then back to Granny Grumpy; Guarded by the ghosts on the great journey.
“Golly Gosh” . . . . . . shouted the Grandchildren as they saw Granny, and “Greta, Georges and Gwenn” . . . . . shouted Granny Grumpy and all was good as they ate Gruel grapes greens and gooseberries and drank gallons of ginger beer in the garden and the gannets, Ghosts and goats gambled (sorry gambolled) about grinning.
Then a great gathering of Guillemots gathered giving no indication of their ghastly plan, then as there numbers grew and grew they swooped, and they ate the ghosts and then they ate the gannets and they ate the goats.
Granny Grumpy and the grandchildren were gobsmacked but then the gathering of guillemots ate the grandchildren and Granny Grumpy and the grapes and the gooseberries, gruel, greens and ginger beer before going; and everything was gone and no one lived happily ever after, except the guillemots, although they do say you will never see a happy guillemot in your garden.
