CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Oh, hello. I'm Shobna.
I want to turn the CBeebies rug into a magical flying carpet
but my spell isn't working.
Maybe if I try another one. Let's try this one.
No, that hasn't worked. Maybe tonight's story might help.
It's by Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul
and is called Winnie's Flying Carpet.
Winnie the Witch was busy writing letters.
They were thank you letters for her birthday presents.
There was only one left - the trickiest letter.
Winnie's sisters, Wilma, Wanda and Wendy,
had given her a flying carpet.
Winnie had always wanted a flying carpet
but this flying carpet had been a disappointment.
Actually, it had been a disaster.
There was the time it got tangled in Winnie's washing.
the day it tipped over at the duck pond.
And then, one day, it turned a corner too quickly.
After that, Winnie rolled up the carpet, tied it with string,
put it in the broom cupboard and locked the door.
But Winnie wanted to write something nice about the carpet
in her letter.
She unlocked the cupboard, untied the carpet
and spread it onto the armchair.
"It's a beautiful carpet," she thought.
"It seems a pity not to use it."
So, Winnie decided to give it one more chance.
Just then, the doorbell rang.
Winnie hurried off to answer it
just as Wilbur came inside.
After a busy morning climbing trees and chasing butterflies,
he was ready for his sleep.
The sun was shining on the flying carpet.
It looked so warm and comfortable.
Wilbur jumped up and, in one minute, he was snoring.
The flying carpet waited one more minute
then it rose gently into the air. Wilbur didn't wake up.
It flew gently round the room. Wilbur didn't wake up.
Then it zoomed out of the window!
-Wilbur woke up.
"Miaow!" he cried. Winnie heard him. She looked up just in time
to see the flying carpet zoom up into the sky.
"Oh, no!" cried Winnie.
She grabbed her magic wand and her broomstick
and zoomed up into the sky after them.
Winnie flew as fast as her broomstick could go
but the carpet was faster.
It swooped over the clock tower and under a bridge.
Winnie followed it.
"Hang on tight, Wilbur!" she called. "Miaow!" cried Wilbur.
Then the carpet flew over a funfair. What fun!
First, it whizzed down the Roller Coaster Rocket.
Winnie whizzed down behind it.
Then it tried the Terrible Twister.
The carpet was having a wonderful time.
Wilbur was having a horrible time!
Winnie was worried. She would never catch them.
Then she had an idea. She waved a magic wand, shouted "Abracadabra!"
And everything stopped.
Nothing whizzed or zoomed or shrieked or splashed.
All was still. Including the flying carpet.
Wilbur jumped onto Winnie's shoulder.
"Prrr! Prrr!" he said.
Then Winnie rolled up the flying carpet.
"Let's go home, Wilbur," she said. "By broomstick!"
Winnie waved her magic wand backwards.
"Abracadabra!" she shouted and everything started again.
Whee! Zoom! Whizz! Vroom!
Winnie and Wilbur landed in Winnie's garden.
Winnie frowned at the flying carpet. What would she do with it?
Then Winnie had a wonderful idea.
She shut her eyes and waved her wand.
And there, tied to two trees, was a beautiful hammock.
Winnie and Wilbur climbed in. They were both very tired.
The hammock rocked gently in the breeze.
"This is so comfortable, Wilbur," said Winnie.
But Wilbur didn't hear. He was already fast asleep.
And that story was called Winnie's Flying Carpet.
Hmm, well, maybe a flying carpet isn't such a good idea, after all.
I wonder if I can try any other spells.
And while I do, it's time for you to go to sleep.
Just like Wilbur. I'll see you soon for another story.
Now, let's see what other spell I can do.
