Hello, I'm Lucy.
I live at 64 Zoo Lane. And I have some very special neighbours. Look.
# There is one with a hump And one who can jump and one who is
-# Well, a little bit plump
-64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane
# Some like it hot
# And some like it chilly And some like it both ways
-# And that's a bit silly
-64, 64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane
# Some are friendly Some are scary
# But one thing is sure Not one is ordinary
# 64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane
# Some are spotty, some are stripy
# They're prickly and woolly and furry and slimy
# Some are quite big And some are very small
# And the last one's Georgina
# Who's incredibly tall

-< Bedtime, Lucy.
ALL: Hello, Lucy.
What's in the box, Lucy?
Play clay animals. Did you make those, Lucy?
Yes, and I've done one of each of you.
Oh, thank you, Lucy.
And very well made.
-What's the matter, Lucy?
Your model has disappeared.
I showed my models to my friend, Chloe, today. Maybe she kept one.
Without asking you first?
Once, she took one of my lollies without asking. So...
Lucy, just because someone does something once,
-doesn't mean they'll do it again.
Why don't we tell Lucy the story of the house of leaves?
-ALL: Oh, yes.
Nelson the elephant liked making things.
One day, he decided to build the biggest
and best house of leaves there had ever been.
-Careful, don't move.
-Hello, what are you making?
I'm making the biggest and best house of leaves there has ever been.
Wow! That really is amazing. You're so clever, Uncle Nelson.
Ah, ooh, ooh. A house of leaves is very fragile, Nigel.
I'll show it to you when it's finished.
I only want to watch. Is that OK?
-Well, as long as you don't disturb me.
-Can I help, too?
Oh, please, can I? I'll be careful.
Oh, all right, then.
-Sshh! Just look at it.
Listen to me, Nigel. I'm going to find the others.
I want you to watch over the house of leaves.
Don't let anyone get near it. Promise?
But Nigel couldn't keep his promise.
The house of leaves was so irresistibly inviting.
Huh, it looks pretty solid to me. Uncle Nelson was exaggerating.
Oh, just wait until you see my creation.
Nigel, I told you not to touch my house of leaves.
Go and stand beside the naughty tree.
Sorry, Uncle Nelson.
I'll just have to start all over again.
We'll come back later, Nelson.
Ah! I'm going to fetch the others.
-Nigel, this time...
-I know, Uncle Nelson, don't worry.
-I won't do it again.
-I hope not.
NIGEL CRIES OUT
-You did it again!
-But I didn't do anything.
You've done it once, why should I believe you this time?
Back to the naughty tree.
Nigel thought his Uncle Nelson wasn't being fair.
Nelson was getting hot and bothered.
Last two leaves and then it's finished. One...
What? Where's the last leaf? It's not possible, I counted them all.
You ate one of my leaves while I was swimming, didn't you?
But I haven't done anything.
Of course you haven't. Perhaps I ate it!
I think you'd better go away and find something else to do.
It's not fair!
Nigel hadn't eaten his Uncle Nelson's leaf
and he was determined to prove it.
Hello, Audrey. I'm looking for the missing leaf from my Uncle Nelson's
house of leaves.
Have a look at my nest. If you find the one you're after,
then do take it.
Thanks, Audrey, but it's not here.
Are you hungry, Nigel? Would you like some leaves?
Thanks, Georgina, but I'm looking for something important.
-What's that, Nigel?
-The truth, Georgina! The truth!
-House of leaves...
-What's the matter, Nelson?
This isn't the biggest or best house of leaves ever. I'm missing a leaf.
My project is ruined and all because of Nigel.
Come on, your house of leaves is still spectacular.
-You'll find another leaf.
Don't come any closer.
I know where the missing leaf is! The leaf is there.
THEY ALL LAUGH
Ah, so that was the truth you were searching for, Nigel.
Oh, it's all my fault? I'm sorry for not believing you, Nigel.
-I just wanted to help you.
It was time for the last leaf.
And then we all marvelled at the biggest
and best house of leaves ever,
made by Nelson and Nigel.
So, you see, Lucy,
you should never accuse someone of something
unless you know for sure it was them.
I'd better check my bedroom properly before I ask Chloe.
ALL: Oh, yes.
Oh, look! There you are, Georgina.
-Good night, Georgina, and little Georgina.
-Good night, Lucy.
