Wish I'd caught something.
Oh, hello! I'm David.
I was saying, I wish I'd caught something when I was fishing today.
Wouldn't have minded what I caught.
A welly boot would've been useful.
It rains a lot this time of year and I've lost a welly, look at that.
A bicycle might have been a bit big, but I could do with a new bicycle.
The girl in tonight's story likes fishing,
and she likes wishing too.
Let's find out what she wishes for.
The story is by Stephen Mackey and it's called Miki.
A long time ago and very far away,
there was a place that was always cold and dark.
Nothing grew in this icy world.
"I wish we could find just a little tree", said Miki to Penguin.
At once, a little tree sprang up in front of them,
but the tree looked lonely and bare.
Miki and Penguin took it home.
"I wish we had some pretty lights", said Miki.
A string of fairy lights suddenly appeared!
Miki draped them over the little tree.
"If only we could make them twinkle", she said.
The very next moment, a twinkle machine appeared.
Penguin climbed aboard and pedalled faster and faster.
The little lights began to glitter,
throwing sparkly beams over the snow.
But soon, Penguin's feet were tired and sore.
The pretty lights faded.
"We need someone stronger", he sighed.
Miki and Penguin jumped.
Polar Bear appeared from nowhere.
He was the strongest creature in the land,
and beside him was a windmill.
Polar Bear huffed and puffed and the little lights shone bright.
But even the strongest creature can run out of breath.
Soon, the friends were in darkness again.
said Miki, as she fished for supper.
"..I could catch a star. A star would shine forever."
Suddenly, there was a big tug on her rod...
-..and Miki was gone.
"Help", called Penguin.
Polar Bear looked into the fishing hole.
Miki was nowhere to be seen.
But down in the deep blue ocean,
Miki was safe in the magic of Midwinter Eve.
A gentle giant was taking her on a journey.
She gazed with awe at the strange, wonderful creatures.
There were sea urchins, eels and...
"Oh, dear", cried Miki.
But he only wanted to show them the way.
He waved his tingly-tangly tentacles.
"We're here", said the gentle giant.
Miki dreamily floated down until she reached the ocean floor.
Back on the ice,
Polar Bear bravely decided to dive down to search for Miki.
Down, down he went,
but there was no sign of his little friend.
On the ocean floor, Miki had fallen asleep,
safely snuggled inside a sea flower.
She was awoken by a gentle tickle.
A tiny octopus danced in front of her.
"Come with me", he said.
Miki parted the petals. A wonderful sight met her eyes.
In front of her were 100 twinkling stars.
Back on the ice,
Polar Bear popped back through the hole.
"No sign of her", he sighed.
"I wish I could dive down", said Penguin.
At once, Penguin found himself dressed
in a little penguin diving suit.
"Lower me down, Polar Bear", he cried.
Down he went.
All the time he looked about, calling out for his friend.
But his voice was too small to hear.
Penguin had never been so deep in the sea before.
The watery world was full of strange and fearsome creatures.
"Pull me up, Polar Bear", he cried.
Polar Bear hauled him up, just in time.
"No sign of her", said Penguin sadly.
"But we must never give up".
At the bottom of the ocean, the magic was wearing thin.
Miki knew it was time to go home.
The tiny octopus took her to his mother.
Polar Bear was getting ready to search again, when...
there was a rumble, a splinter...and a crack!
The little fishing hole was opening up, bigger...
and bigger. The ice started to move beneath their feet
and the ground heaved and...shattered!
And the biggest creature the friends had ever seen
shot out of the fishing hole.
There, nestled safely in its long arms, was Miki -
just in time. It was nearly midnight and the magic was running out.
And in Miki's pocket was a sparkling star -
a star that would shine forever.
On Midwinter Eve When the icy wind blew
The moon weaved her magic And wishes came true
The little star shone For all it was worth
And spread Midwinter light All over the Earth.
And that story was called Miki.
Oh, oh... Oh!
Look... I've caught a shining star.
A star that can shine all night long,
while you sleep and have lovely dreams of polar bears and penguins
I'll see you soon for another story. Night-night.
Now, what else could I catch?
Hmm, I wish, I wish I can catch the moon.
