CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Oh, hello! My name's Toby.
I was looking up at the night sky,
looking at the Moon. Seeing if I could spot anything on it,
because that's where the Loon lives. On the Moon.
What's that? You've not heard of the Loon?
Well, tonight's bedtime story is about the Loon,
and it's called The Loon On The Moon, by Chae Strathie and Emily Golden.
This is the Loon who lives on the Moon.
Every night he zooms down to Earth in his Loon zoomer,
to suck up all the dreams that leak from children's ears.
Like steam from a kettle.
Then he zooms back up again, and uses the dream steam to power the engine
that lights up the lightbulbs that make the Moon glow.
But one evening the Loon zoomed down to find the dreams had all dried up!
"Oh, dear," he said,
"Now I'll have to get my dream steam from somewhere else.
"Perhaps the Moptops on Mercury have some."
So the Loon zoomed with a boom to Mercury.
"Hello, Moptops, do you have any dream steam?" he asked.
The Moptops stopped dancing. "No dream steam here, Moon Loon,"
they all chorused together, "Try the Noodles from Neptune."
So the Loon zoomed with a boom to Neptune.
"Hello, Noodles, do you have any dream steam?" he asked.
The Noodles were sitting on their Noodle nests,
waiting for their Noodle eggs to hatch.
"Coo, our dream steam is all finished," they cooed,
"Try the Vimtingles from Venus."
So the Loon zoomed with a boom to Venus,
but the Vimtingles were far too busy
telling each other jokes and laughing to care about dream steam.
The Yoo-Hoos from Uranus weren't much help,
nor were the Sindings from Saturns, the Mini-Moos from Mars,
the Jiffles from Jupiter,
nor the Polly-Wolly-Plumpkins from Pluto!
"Fizzbungle," said the Loon.
No dream steam meant no power, which meant no Moon!
That night the Loon only had enough power to light up
three quarters of the Moon,
then half the next night, then a quarter,
until finally the light in the Moon went out altogether.
What was the Loon going to do? He was feeling very sad,
sitting all alone on his dark Moon.
When, all of a sudden, he had a fantastic, brilliant,
extraordinarily exciting idea!
As quick as a flash
he wrote down the tale of his outer space search for dream steam,
then he wrote it again, and again, and again,
until he had an enormous pile of stories.
Then he zoomed with a boom down to Earth
and left a story in every child's room.
When they heard the story, their heads were filled with Moptops
and Noodles and Vimtingles and Jiffles,
and that night they all dreamed dreams of marvellous things,
and the Loon could light up the Moon.
Well, it's time for you to go to bed and have lots of sweet dreams,
so the Loon can collect the steam from your dreams.
I'll see you soon for another bedtime story. Night, night.
Now, let's have another look at the Moon.
I'm sure I'll be able to see the Loon if I look really carefully.
