0:00:390:00:43

Come on! Are we going to get on with this book or not?

0:00:490:00:52

Sam? Sam!

0:00:520:00:54

Yes?

0:00:540:00:56

How's your school book going?

0:00:560:00:58

Hello, you two. I should have returned this ages ago.

0:00:580:01:02

Ah! My soldering iron.

0:01:020:01:05

You know what? I couldn't for the

0:01:050:01:07

life of me remember where I put this, and you had it all the time!

0:01:070:01:11

Oh, Mali loves that book! He's told me all about it.

0:01:110:01:15

Have you got to the bit where all

0:01:150:01:17

the seven brothers are reunited after being separated for so long?

0:01:170:01:21

No.

0:01:210:01:23

Every time I ask her something about the book, she avoids answering.

0:01:230:01:28

-Dad!

-Well, maybe that book's not quite right for you.

0:01:280:01:32

Well, I've tried really hard, but...

0:01:320:01:36

-Go on.

-I just don't like the book.

0:01:360:01:39

I've read the beginning...

0:01:390:01:42

-Ten times.

-You know,

0:01:420:01:45

a good book grips you right from the beginning until right to the end.

0:01:450:01:49

I think it's fair to say not everyone likes every book.

0:01:490:01:53

And, Sam, don't be afraid to be different.

0:01:530:01:57

If everybody liked the same things, wore the same clothes,

0:01:570:02:03

read the same books,

0:02:030:02:06

and ate the same food,

0:02:060:02:09

and said all the same things,

0:02:090:02:11

ha!

0:02:110:02:13

What a boring place the world would be, eh?

0:02:130:02:16

Have you read that lovely book about the postwoman?

0:02:160:02:19

I love the way you get to read all

0:02:190:02:21

-the letters that are delivered by Poppy.

-That book was OK.

0:02:210:02:25

I think we might need a little bit more inspiration.

0:02:250:02:29

Maybe a trip to the library's in order.

0:02:290:02:32

Mali and I are going at the end of the week.

0:02:320:02:35

-OK.

-And, in the meantime, do you fancy coming round?

0:02:350:02:39

I think I might have just the thing to inspire you.

0:02:390:02:42

Yes.

0:02:420:02:43

-WHISPERING:

-What's she doing?

0:02:480:02:51

I don't know.

0:02:510:02:54

Ah, found it!

0:02:540:02:55

Nothing beats the feel of a real book.

0:03:030:03:06

Sometimes it's the smell of new

0:03:060:03:09

pages that have never been touched, or the

0:03:090:03:12

sound of turning pages,

0:03:120:03:13

or shapes of words on paper,

0:03:130:03:16

or the delight of reading a much-loved book.

0:03:160:03:21

There you go.

0:03:210:03:22

-It's old.

-Less of the old, please!

0:03:250:03:29

Never judge a book by its cover.

0:03:290:03:32

It may not look much on the outside,

0:03:320:03:35

but you can never tell what's inside until you have a good, long read.

0:03:350:03:40

If you make the wrong assumption,

0:03:400:03:43

you may never know what treasures lie inside a good book.

0:03:430:03:47

Go on, open it.

0:03:470:03:49

-Wow!

-Wow!

-Wow!

0:03:500:03:52

This is like...

0:03:520:03:55

Like a notebook, but not a notebook.

0:03:550:03:58

A diary, but not a diary.

0:03:580:04:01

More like a scrapbook.

0:04:010:04:04

A scrapbook? No, it's beautiful.

0:04:040:04:07

When I was a child,

0:04:070:04:08

I absolutely loved to read, and that love of reading has stayed with me

0:04:080:04:12

until today, but when I was a little bit older than you are now,

0:04:120:04:16

I ran out of new books to read,

0:04:160:04:19

so I decided to write my own books

0:04:190:04:22

with little stories from my own life.

0:04:220:04:25

What kind of stories?

0:04:250:04:27

Well, in Pakistan, my father's job was driving a bus.

0:04:270:04:33

They nicknamed him Lightning Tariq!

0:04:330:04:37

-Ha-ha!

-Why?

0:04:380:04:41

Because his bus was always on time, never late.

0:04:410:04:46

They took a picture for the local newspaper because he always kept the

0:04:460:04:50

bus route running, no matter what the weather,

0:04:500:04:54

so I put the newspaper cutting into my book and wrote a little story all

0:04:540:04:59

about his life driving from village to village.

0:04:590:05:03

And check out that boat ticket.

0:05:030:05:06

Oh, this brings back memories, just like it was yesterday.

0:05:060:05:09

You have to remember that this was the first time I had ever travelled

0:05:090:05:14

out of Pakistan. It was quite a big deal for a very small me!

0:05:140:05:19

You can say my first ever adventure.

0:05:190:05:22

I was so fascinated by the boat.

0:05:220:05:25

There were so many people all

0:05:250:05:26

planning to live lives in a new place.

0:05:260:05:29

Very exciting, but also very scary.

0:05:290:05:32

I explored that boat high and low,

0:05:320:05:36

but my favourite bit was watching the waves hit against the side.

0:05:360:05:41

So soothing.

0:05:410:05:43

And when we moved into our new house,

0:05:430:05:46

the first thing I saw when I stood in the garden was a leaf.

0:05:460:05:51

I let the leaf dry and put that in the book too.

0:05:510:05:55

-You wrote a poem?

-Yes, I did.

0:05:550:05:59

"As the autumn leaves are shed

0:05:590:06:02

"and spread to the other lands,

0:06:020:06:04

"will they still remember their roots?

0:06:040:06:08

"Will it truly ever be home?

0:06:080:06:11

Wow, that's so cool!

0:06:110:06:13

-So cool!

-There are many things in

0:06:130:06:16

there that remind me of all the places I've lived in.

0:06:160:06:19

If something inspired me,

0:06:190:06:22

I'd put it in there so that others could read about my adventures.

0:06:220:06:26

Wow, Grandma Zainab, this is fabulous.

0:06:260:06:29

Everyone should read this.

0:06:290:06:30

-Can I borrow it?

-Sure.

0:06:300:06:32

I'll take special precious care of it.

0:06:320:06:35

And then you can tell me all about

0:06:350:06:37

-it when you've read it cover to cover.

-Definitely.

0:06:370:06:40

-This'll do.

-Hey, Samster, I've got some jobs to do around the estate.

0:06:560:07:00

-Do you want to come and give me a hand?

-No, thanks.

0:07:000:07:03

Oh, listen, I'm going to sort out that chest in the shed.

0:07:030:07:07

-Do you want to come and help me with it?

-No, thanks.

0:07:070:07:10

-Do you want to play ball?

-No, thanks.

0:07:100:07:13

Hey, Samster, what are you doing?

0:07:210:07:24

Sorry, Dad. You can look once I've done.

0:07:240:07:26

Can I read a little bit now?

0:07:280:07:30

No! Once I've done, I promise.

0:07:300:07:33

OK.

0:07:330:07:35

You'd better hurry up.

0:07:350:07:37

# My favourite book I haven't started yet

0:07:440:07:49

# The storyline has not yet been set

0:07:490:07:53

# It will be few stories young and old

0:07:530:07:58

# So that we will never forget

0:07:580:08:02

# So that we will never forget

0:08:020:08:06

# So that we'll never, ever forget. #

0:08:060:08:10

Can I read too?

0:08:100:08:11

Yes, Bella, but remember, I'm not finished yet.

0:08:110:08:14

Well, what do you think, Mali?

0:08:140:08:17

Oh, I don't know what to say.

0:08:170:08:20

I never knew your dad did so much.

0:08:200:08:22

Sam, this is incredible.

0:08:220:08:24

Do you really think so?

0:08:240:08:26

Yes. Let's tell Gran.

0:08:260:08:28

She'll be so happy that you want everyone to read your stories and

0:08:280:08:32

I'm going to follow you and write my own scrapbook too.

0:08:320:08:35

And, remember, I still need to write the ending.

0:08:350:08:39

"They all lived happily ever after under the apple tree."

0:08:390:08:43

Come on, you lot! Drink up, I need to get you all home.

0:08:440:08:48

ALL: Aw!

0:08:480:08:50

-Do we have to?

-Yes.

0:08:500:08:53

Come on.

0:08:550:08:57

Come on, let's go.

0:08:590:09:01

OK. Let's go.

0:09:010:09:03

Is it time for me to see what you

0:09:180:09:20

were working on in your little notebook?

0:09:200:09:23

Well, it's not quite ready yet. Later.

0:09:230:09:27

-Oh, no!

-Is everything OK, sweetie?

0:09:270:09:29

My scrapbook, it's gone!

0:09:290:09:31

The one you were writing in?

0:09:310:09:33

-Yes.

-Where did you have it last?

0:09:330:09:35

Flo's Cafe, I think.

0:09:350:09:37

OK, no problem. We'll sort that.

0:09:370:09:40

Hmm, that's odd.

0:09:440:09:45

There's no answer.

0:09:450:09:47

You worked so hard on your...

0:09:480:09:50

-My scrapbook.

-Yeah, scrapbook.

0:09:500:09:52

Are you sure you didn't leave it at school?

0:09:520:09:55

Sure. Definitely sure.

0:09:550:09:57

Well, we can check with Mali and Bella

0:09:570:09:59

and also look around the estate.

0:09:590:10:01

I'm sure we'll find that scrapbook somewhere.

0:10:010:10:05

# There are so many stories that we've yet to tell

0:10:090:10:16

# So we better get writing straight away

0:10:160:10:18

# And use the words to describe the smell

0:10:180:10:20

# Of a beautiful summer's day

0:10:200:10:22

# Fun we had Friends we had

0:10:220:10:24

# We all went out to play

0:10:240:10:26

# Oh, my story must be told

0:10:270:10:31

# To all the people young and old

0:10:310:10:35

# A tale that speaks to everyone

0:10:350:10:39

# Writing stories is so much fun

0:10:390:10:43

# Oh, my story must be told

0:11:010:11:03

# To all the people young and old

0:11:040:11:08

# A tale that speaks to everyone

0:11:080:11:11

# Writing stories is so much fun

0:11:130:11:17

# Writing stories is so much fun

0:11:170:11:21

# Writing stories is so much fun. #

0:11:210:11:25

-Feeling any better?

-No, sorry. Still can't find my book.

0:11:250:11:29

-This book?

-My book!

0:11:310:11:33

-You've read it!

-Well, yes.

0:11:330:11:36

I found it out by the recycling.

0:11:360:11:38

Oh.

0:11:380:11:40

Do you know, Sam, it's a really brilliant piece of writing?

0:11:400:11:44

-And reading.

-Right, does this mean we can cheer up now?

0:11:440:11:47

Of course.

0:11:470:11:48

You know, where did you get the idea from?

0:11:480:11:51

Grandma Zainab. She said that when she was little, she wrote a book of

0:11:510:11:55

her own to share with friends and neighbours.

0:11:550:11:59

Ah. Well, do you know what?

0:11:590:12:01

I think she might like to see this, then.

0:12:010:12:03

-Absolutely.

-Come on.

0:12:030:12:05

Hello? Can we come in?

0:12:110:12:14

Of course.

0:12:140:12:15

We've brought your book back.

0:12:170:12:19

-Thank you.

-Just as we promised.

0:12:190:12:22

-Did you like it?

-Yes, and you inspired me.

0:12:220:12:25

-To do what?

-Here, have a look.

0:12:250:12:28

Look! That's me.

0:12:320:12:33

It's brilliant.

0:12:350:12:37

This is a book about Apple Tree House for everyone to share.

0:12:370:12:41

You know what? You've just inspired me.

0:12:410:12:44

We should start our very own Apple Tree House scrapbook library.

0:12:440:12:48

People could donate their stories or

0:12:480:12:50

they could read other people's stories. What do you say?

0:12:500:12:54

-Yes.

-Here's to our two books and the

0:12:540:12:58

start of the Apple Tree House scrapbook library.

0:12:580:13:01

Mali? Are you OK?

0:13:080:13:11

Are you OK?

0:13:140:13:16

I'm thinking of the beginning of my story.

0:13:160:13:18

Guess what it will be about?

0:13:180:13:20

Rockets, spacemen...

0:13:200:13:23

Dinosaurs! Raaar!

0:13:230:13:25

-You're a good friend, Mali.

-And you're a great friend, Sam.

0:13:290:13:33

Sam seems bored and isn't enjoying her latest reading book. But when Zainab shows off her scrapbook about her life's adventures Sam is inspired to make a book of her own.
