CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Hmm, did I put it here?
I wonder if I put it over here.
Hello! I'm Floella, and I have lost something.
I can't remember what it is.
But when I find it, I'll certainly know what it is!
Have you ever lost something?
Well, Max, the cool cat in tonight's bedtime story, has lost something.
Let's find out what he's lost.
The story is by Graham Marsh and it's called Max And The Lost Note.
This is Max. He's a cat who plays piano.
Max is a sharp dresser.
Some cats say he's as dapper as Dan and as hip as Harry!
That means he's a very cooool cat indeed.
One day, Max was writing a new tune.
Music filled the room
and the notes were falling from the piano like snowflakes,
when suddenly...he stopped.
Max had lost one of his notes and he could not finish the tune!
Max looked everywhere for his lost note.
He looked right, he looked up, he looked left.
He scanned the whole room for the lost note.
He even looked in the suitcase which he kept neatly packed in his room.
"I know," thought Max,
"I'll see if any of the other cats have found my lost note."
So Max rode his scooter downtown,
stopping at Kitties Place for a glass of milk and some catnip.
At Kitties, he met The Felines. The Felines were a famous vocal group.
There was Florence, Phoebe, Ella and Coco.
They wore groovy clothes and were always singing.
Max asked The Felines to sing for him.
Perhaps his lost note was hidden in one of their songs.
# Shoo-ba, shoo-ba, boo-ba, woo-ah Shoo-oop, shoo-bah, woo-ah, wah! #
No luck. The note was not there.
Then Coco said,
"Try Long Tall Dexter. He has plenty of notes."
Max told Long Tall Dexter about his lost note.
"Well, let me see," whispered Dexter,
"I'll play something for you on my saxophone
"and we'll see if it's there."
# Bam-bam-bam-wam! Wah-wam-wah! #
But when he finished playing,
Max said, "Ooh, that was a solid tune, Dexter,
"but my lost note isn't there."
"Now, listen, Max, my furry little friend," said Dexter,
"I know three cats called Miles, Oliver and Charlie
"who might just know the whereabouts of your lost note.
"Tell them Long Tall Dexter sent you."
As it was such a warm, sunny day, Max left his scooter and red jacket
at Dexter's house and decided to walk.
Max met up with Dexter's cats.
There was Miles, who played the trumpet,
Oliver who was a drummer, and Charlie who played a mean guitar.
They played some funky music for Max.
# Dung-a-nun-a-nun-lung-da-dung! Nung-a-lun-a-dung-din-ah-ah-ah! #
But, sadly, his lost note was not there.
Max was beginning to think he would never find his lost note.
Then he saw his neighbour, Rita, sitting on a bench playing her flute.
"Ooh, what's happened, Max?" she asked.
"I've lost a note," replied Max.
"Is it this one?" Rita asked,
and she played a beautiful melody on her flute.
# Whoo-woo-woo-woo-whee! Hoo-hoo-whoo-hoo-hooooo! #
"Oh, I wish it was," said Max, "That was sweet."
Suddenly Rita had a thought. "Go and see my friend Sam," she said.
"He has a new double bass.
"It's so big, your missing note might just have landed there."
Now Sam, like Max, was a very cool cat indeed.
He had a different hat for every day of the week. That's a total of seven!
The mellow notes coming from Sam's double bass
made Max feel very relaxed.
# Boom-boom-boom-boom-boom Boom-boom-boom-boom-boom! #
"Oh, I love your music very much, Sam, but my lost note isn't there."
Max walked home. On the way, he listened to the sounds of the city.
The birds, the cars, the buses, even the fat cat selling newspapers.
There was a kind of music in everything
if you took time out to listen.
# Whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo! # # Beep-beep-beep! #
# Urh-urh! # # Paper! Papers here! #
Max heard all the different notes the city had to offer.
All except the one he had lost.
When Max got home, he sat down and he kicked off his shoes.
Suddenly he saw something that made him nearly jump out of his seat!
There, stuck to the sole of one shoe, was his lost note.
He must have trodden on it while he was writing his new tune.
"So," though Max, "The note wasn't lost after all,
"it was just missing!"
Now Max could finish his tune.
All the cats joined in, and they sang and played for hours!
Max was one happy coooooool cat!
# Diddle-ing-ding-ding! #
And that story was called Max And The Lost Note.
Ah, that's what I lost, the radio!
I wanted to listen to some music before I went to bed.
Now, where is it?
Under you? No!
I just need to keep looking,
and while I do it's time for you to go to bed
and I'll see you very soon for another bedtime story.
Night-night and sweet dreams. Bye!
Ah, maybe it's in the kitchen. Why didn't I think of that?
