..And an umbrella.
I'm Fiona. I'm getting ready to go exploring.
I like exploring. Do you?
Look, I've got all sorts of things to take on my expedition.
A lamp, for when it gets a bit dark.
An umbrella, in case it rains.
A wooden spoon...
What? I don't need a wooden spoon!
What would I use that for?
Oh, I know. I've got a wooden spoon. Bear suggested I needed it.
Bear, Wolf, Owl and Pig go on an expedition in tonight's story.
And they take all sorts of things with them!
The story is by Norbert Landa and Tim Warnes,
and is called The Great Monster Hunt.
Early one morning,
a funny noise woke up Duck.
It sounded like... "Pssh. Pssh."
And it came from right under her bed.
Duck was not quite sure what it was, and she was much too afraid to look.
Instead, she jumped out of bed and ran for help.
"Pig!" Duck yelled.
"There is something under my bed and it's making strange sounds.
"It goes, "Pssh, pssh, grrr.""
"Pssh, pssh, grr?" Asked Pig.
"Oh, my. We need someone really strong to help.
"Stay right where you are." And Pig ran to find Bear.
Pig told Bear all about the frightening noise under Duck's bed.
"It goes, pssh, pssh, grr, bang bang!
"I wanted to tell you, Bear, because you are so strong."
Bear lifted a huge log.
"It is true I'm strong enough for almost anything," he said.
"But I think we'd better find someone who's loud enough
"to chase this thing away."
So they ran to find Wolf, who was about to start his morning howling.
Bear told him the dreadful news about the terrifying thing
under Duck's bed. "It goes, pssh, pssh, grr, bang, bang,
"pam, pam all of the time!" Bear said.
"We thought you could help us frighten it away."
"Oh, yes, I can," Wolf proudly said.
"There is no match for what I can do. Just listen.
"But maybe we also need help from someone really clever."
So they ran to find Owl. "Listen," Wolf said.
"There is a dreadful and terrifying sound under Duck's bed.
"It goes, pssh, pssh, grrr, bang, bang, pam, pam, grrrowl!"
Owl was lost for words.
"We thought you might know what it was," Pig said,
"because you are so clever."
Owl said, "Clever, yes. That's what I am."
"So I can tell you one thing. Duck is in great danger."
"It must be a monster!" yelled Pig.
"Oh, what are we going to do?"
"The only way to deal with a monster," Owl said,
"is to trap it."
Clever Owl! So the animals set about gathering
rope and nets and... useful pokey things.
then the four of them bravely set off towards Duck's house.
"Owooooooooo!" Owl led the way,
because trapping the monster was his clever idea.
Next came Wolf, howling loudly.
Then came Bear, with his monster-busting stick.
Last was Pig, clutching his great monster-catching net.
Finally, they arrived at Duck's house
and flattened their ears against the door.
"Duck? Are you there?" called Wolf.
Then the door slowly creaked open.
It was Duck.
"You're here!" she said.
"Duck, you are in great danger!" whispered Bear.
"There is a monster under your bed!" cried Pig.
Duck looked fit to faint.
"A monster?" she whimpered.
"How do you know?"
"Because it goes pssh, pssh, grrr,
"bang, bang, pam, pam, grrrowl!" Pig yelled.
"And owoooooo!" Owl added.
"Come on, let's get it!"
And the animals charged into Duck's house.
Up the stairs they crept.
Then they heard a sound.
"Pssh, pssh," it went.
It came right from under Duck's bed.
Owl flashed his torch.
The animals gasped - they could not believe what they saw!
There, right under Duck's bed,
was a tiny mouse, snoring softly in its tiny bed.
"Well, I never!" Duck whispered.
"Do you know what we've just done?" Owl smiled.
All feeling rather silly,
the animals looked at each other and giggled.
"We've just made a monster out of a mouse."
That story was called The Great Monster Hunt.
I'm glad it was just a mouse underneath Duck's bed.
I don't think I need all these things on my expedition.
I'm sure there are more useful things I can find in the house.
So, while I put my kit together for tomorrow,
it's time for you to get some sleep, ready for tomorrow's adventure.
I'll see you soon for another story.
