The Glunk That Got Thunk
author: Dr. Seuss
The Glunk That Got Thunk was written by the famous children's author, Dr. Seuss. It's a story about how a little girl gets into trouble that she can't get herself out of without the help of her bigger brother. She uses her "Thinker-Upper", turns it up as fast as it will go, because she got bored with all the fuzzy stuff she normally thought up, and thinks up a Glunk. The Glunk starts to cause problems for the little girl and reminds her that "a Glunk can't be un-thunk" when she tries to "un-thunk" him. She was trying hard to "un-thunk" the Glunk when her older brother walks in to see she isn't getting anywhere and helps her "un-thunk" it. The little girl let her imagination run wild and get away from her, without thinking about what could happen. She tried over and over to get rid of the Glunk, but could not do it alone, until she and her brother, working together, "un-thunk" it. The words and rhymes are great (and they go along just fine to the tune of Yankee Doodle Went To Town!). This story, along with the other two in the book "I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today and Other Stories by Dr. Seuss", will give you and your children many hours of quality reading time.
