CBeebies Bedtime Story.

0:00:030:00:06

Hello! I'm Mark. And I've been invited to a party.

0:00:070:00:11

Would you like to join me? Brilliant!

0:00:110:00:14

Put your dancing shoes on and let's visit our minibeast friends

0:00:140:00:18

in tonight's bedtime story.

0:00:180:00:20

It's called Twist and Hop, Minibeast Bop!

0:00:200:00:23

And it's written by Tony Mitton, with pictures with Guy Parker-Rees.

0:00:230:00:28

Down by the woods, I'll come and see

0:00:290:00:32

here in the stump of a fallen tree,

0:00:320:00:34

there's something strange that's made us stop.

0:00:340:00:37

Goodness me! It's a minibeast bop!

0:00:370:00:41

And, oh, what luck! It's just begun!

0:00:410:00:44

Let's crouch down here and watch the fun.

0:00:440:00:47

On come the ants with slickety-clicks.

0:00:470:00:50

How many legs does each have? Six!

0:00:500:00:54

And here come the beetles, looking so fine.

0:00:540:00:58

They've given their shells a brilliant shine.

0:00:580:01:01

But poor old Snail, he'll miss the fun.

0:01:010:01:04

He set out late and snails can't run.

0:01:040:01:08

He's feeling sad. He'd love to go.

0:01:080:01:11

What a shame that snails are slow.

0:01:110:01:15

The worms wriggle up so softly.

0:01:150:01:17

Listen, and see how their silky skins can glisten.

0:01:170:01:21

The slugs slide on. They made good time.

0:01:210:01:25

They slithered here on gooey slime.

0:01:250:01:28

Says Snail, "I know I'm not so fast, but maybe I'll get there at last."

0:01:280:01:33

The ladybirds turn every head.

0:01:350:01:37

They look so bright in black and red.

0:01:370:01:41

But jeepers creepers, look at this!

0:01:410:01:43

Did you ever see such ballgown bliss?

0:01:430:01:47

The butterfly frocks bring gasps and sighs.

0:01:470:01:50

Just see those colours and feast your eyes.

0:01:500:01:54

From way up there, poor Snail looks down.

0:01:550:01:58

And then his face begins to frown.

0:01:580:02:02

He shrinks within his curly shell.

0:02:020:02:04

Is he sulking? Can we tell?

0:02:040:02:07

Do you hear the band begin to play? The dancing's getting underway

0:02:080:02:13

as minibeasts, far too many to number, roll on,

0:02:130:02:16

doing the wriggly rumba.

0:02:160:02:19

Tiny piano and mini guitar get them doing the cha-cha-cha.

0:02:190:02:24

Then, as the rhythm comes alive, everyone shakes to a jittery jive.

0:02:240:02:30

Beetles boogie and bugs go mad.

0:02:300:02:32

It's the wildest dance they've ever had.

0:02:320:02:36

But suddenly, the music stops as bee band leader's baton drops.

0:02:360:02:41

In that hush, they hear him shout,

0:02:430:02:45

"Boulder coming! Make way! Look out!"

0:02:450:02:49

And from the rim, with a rumbling sound,

0:02:490:02:52

comes a rolling rock that shakes the ground.

0:02:520:02:55

The minibeasts all look on in awe

0:02:550:02:57

as it grinds to a halt on the ballroom floor.

0:02:570:03:00

The beetles tremble, the insects wail,

0:03:000:03:03

but from the boulder, out pops Snail.

0:03:030:03:07

"Pardon me for stopping the song, but I simply had to roll along.

0:03:070:03:11

"To slide down would have been too slow,

0:03:110:03:14

"for then, I might have missed the show."

0:03:140:03:17

Bee lifts his baton and gives a grin, then says,

0:03:170:03:21

"Let's boogie. Band, begin!"

0:03:210:03:25

The band pumps out a lively bop,

0:03:250:03:27

which makes the minibeasts wriggle and hop.

0:03:270:03:30

They jump and jive, they rave and shout.

0:03:300:03:34

Even the woodlice leap about.

0:03:340:03:37

And though he's slow, Snail moves with grace.

0:03:370:03:41

When it comes to gliding, he's an ace.

0:03:410:03:45

The glow-worms glimmer their shimmering light

0:03:450:03:48

as the minibeast bop hops on all night.

0:03:480:03:51

Wow! The party is still going on.

0:03:530:03:55

But don't worry, it won't disturb our sleep.

0:03:550:03:58

Maybe we'll dream of glow-worms glimmering

0:03:580:04:01

and butterflies shimmering.

0:04:010:04:03

Sleep well, and I'll see you soon for another bedtime story.

0:04:030:04:08
