Since no-one else wanted to look after Brenda when she was little, her grandmother took her in. It was grandma who decided that Brenda should be called Brenda Brave, since she realised at once that Brenda would become a spirited little lass. It seemed best to give her a suitable name right from the start.
Brenda is very helpful and capable. She helps her grandma with all the chores. For example, there was the time when grandma hurt her leg and Brenda went out and bought her own Christmas presents. “Dearest little child, how would I ever manage without you?”, grandma often says.
Brenda lives with her grandma in a pleasant little house on a sloping cobbled street in the poorest part of the town.
