CBeebies Bedtime Story.
I wonder what's in this one.
But if I open it, that'll mean no more surprises.
Hello! Merry Christmas! I'm Lulu.
Have you had a fantastic Christmas Day?
Have you played games and had lots of fun?
And have you eaten far too much? I know I have.
But I've had a great time with all my family and friends
enjoying Christmas time together.
That's what the animals in tonight's bedtime story are doing too.
Let me tell you about them.
The story is by M Christina Butler and Tina MacNaughton.
And it's called "One Christmas Night."
It was nearly Christmas, and
little Hedgehog just could not wait.
"Mince pies and Christmas cake! Yum-Yum," he laughed.
"Oh, now I can put up the big, shiny star that Badger gave me."
"Perfect," cried little Hedgehog,
as he fixed the star to the very top of his tree.
Then he opened Badger's card.
"Oh, how lovely," he said.
It had a huge, glittering Christmas tree on the front.
"Oh, dear. My house isn't Christmassy."
"And my tree doesn't sparkle like that," he sighed.
Just then, ra-ta-ta-tat came at the door.
"Happy Christmas," cried Mouse.
"Thank you," said Hedgehog.
"But, Mouse, I don't know what to do."
"My house just isn't Christmassy at all!"
"We'll soon fix that," Mouse smiled.
"We can make pinecones sparkle with glitter," said Mouse,
as they tramped into the woods.
"Take cover," cried Hedgehog, as the cones came tumbling down.
"There's holly for the fireplace," Mouse said.
"Ouch!" squeaked little Hedgehog, "It has more prickles than me!"
"Chestnuts and acorns and big bowls of berries,"
they all sang as they marched home.
Together, they glued and glittered
until nuts and acorns twinkled like stars.
And holly twigs shimmered red, green and gold.
"Wow," cried little Hedgehog.
"It's like a magic Christmassy cave," said Mouse.
"But we have to go. We haven't wrapped our presents yet!"
"Oh, no," squeaked little Hedgehog.
"I've forgotten to get presents for my friends!"
Little Hedgehog thought hard.
"Oh, I know! I can give this book to Badger.
"I'll make a carrot cake for Rabbit.
"And a night-time picture for Fox.
"I can make stockings with nuts for the little ones,"
chuckled little Hedgehog, pattering into the woods again.
He gazed up at the glittering branches,
as snowflakes floated past his nose.
"And a bunch of twinkly twigs for Mouse," he smiled.
Hedgehog wandered on and on through the trees,
looking for the best twigs he could find.
The wood grew darker,
and the snowflakes whirled faster around him.
"Phew," he gasped, struggling with the basket.
"However shall I get home?"
At last, the snow stopped.
And a bright moon peeked above the trees.
Pale, blue shadows flitted here and there,
as little Hedgehog huffed and puffed through the snow.
Then, in the stillness,
he heard a pad-pad-padding noise,
getting closer and closer until...
"Eek!" yelled Fox, bumping into little Hedgehog.
"He-he! You look like a walking Christmas tree!"
Little Hedgehog and Fox chuckled and chatted all the way home.
Fox put the presents round the tree.
"Everything looks lovely," he said.
But little Hedgehog was not sure.
"There is still something missing."
Suddenly, a loud knock came at the door,
and in walked Badger, with Rabbit and the mice.
"Of course," squeaked little Hedgehog, clapping his paws.
"That's what was missing! All of my friends!"
"Happy Christmas, everyone!"
And that story was called "One Christmas Night."
Hedgehog's home did look like a lovely Christmas cave.
I do hope the animals enjoyed their presents.
I've kept this present so that I still have one more
Christmas surprise before I go to bed.
I hope you have had the perfect Christmas,
because it's time for you to go to bed,
cuddle down with magical dreams of a lovely day.
Good night, and Merry Christmas.
Now, let's see...
Maybe I can guess what's inside.
