CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Hm. Oh, hello. I'm Sheila.
I was just listening to some music.
That's called jazz music.
It's so gentle and smooth, it could send me to sleep.
But I can't go to sleep
because I need to tell you tonight's bedtime story.
There's some music in tonight's story.
The story is Mr Big.
And it's by Ed Vere.
Let me tell you a story about a friend of mine.
He goes by the name of Big. Mr Big.
Now, Mr Big had a small problem.
Compared to everyone else, he was extremely big.
He was so big that anywhere he went,
all everyone ever saw was someone big and scary.
No-one stuck around to find out who he really was.
So, inside, Mr Big felt very, very small.
And that's how it always was.
When Mr Big went to the cafe, everyone had other things to do.
When Mr Big got on the bus, everyone else got off.
And when he went to the pool, well,
let's just say everyone needed to be somewhere else.
No-one ever saw the real Mr Big.
One day, Mr Big noticed a piano in a shop window.
It looked all alone, just like him.
So he bought it and took it home.
As Mr Big sat alone at the piano,
he thought of all the things that made him sad.
And then he played.
His music drifted out through the open window
and into the evening sky.
It drifted across the rooftops, over to his neighbours.
And they wondered who was playing such beautiful music.
The word spread, and night after night,
everyone came from all over town.
And still, no-one knew who was playing. It was a big mystery.
But inside, Mr Big was still alone.
And then one morning,
Mr Big received his first ever letter.
It was an invitation. And it said,
"Dear Mystery Pianist.
"Thank you for your beautiful music.
"Everyone has been listening to you for weeks.
"And we're all wondering one thing - who are you?
"We'd love to meet you.
"Me and a couple of the guys are playing tonight at the Blue Note.
"Please come and join our band.
"See you later. A friend."
That night, Mr Big joined the band.
All night long, the joint was jumping
and nobody wanted to leave.
At last, everyone could see the real Mr Big.
Now the Big Band has hit the big-time
and everyone wants to meet them, Mr Big has a new problem.
He doesn't get much time to be alone.
And that's just the way he likes it.
That story was called Mr Big.
I'm glad Mr Big found some friends to make music with, aren't you?
It's good to have friends, isn't it?
Well, I'm going to listen to some more jazz music
while you get ready for bed.
I'll see you soon for another story. Night-night.
