There! Nearly done! Oh, hello. I'm Lulu!
I'm wrapping another Christmas present.
This one is for some friends I haven't seen yet.
I love Christmas time.
It's so much fun, and I love giving presents to my friends.
There's a hedgehog in tonight's Bedtime Story
who is getting ready to make Christmas special for his friends.
Let me tell you about him.
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.
"Now I can put up the big shiny star that Badger gave me."
"Perfect," cried Little Hedgehog as he fixed the star to the tree.
Then he opened Badger's card. "Oh, how lovely," he said.
It had a huge glittering Christmas tree on the front.
"My house isn't Christmassy, and my tree doesn't sparkle," he sighed.
Just then, ra-ta-tap-tap came at the door.
"Happy Christmas!" cried Mouse. "Thank you," said Hedgehog.
"Mouse, I don't know what to do - my house isn't Christmassy."
"We'll soon fix that," Mouse smiled.
"We can make pine cones sparkle with glitter," said Mouse.
"Take cover," cried Little Hedgehog as the cones came down.
"There's holly for the fireplace," Mouse said.
"Ouch!" squeaked Little Hedgehog. "It has more prickles than me."
# Chestnut and acorns and big bowls of berries! #
they all sang as they marched home.
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.
We have to go. "We haven't wrapped our presents yet."
"Oh, no," squeaked Little Hedgehog,
"Presents? I've forgotten to get presents for my friends."
Little Hedgehog thought hard. I know. I can give this book to Badger.
I'll make carrot cake for Rabbit and a night-time picture for Fox.
I can make stockings full of nuts for the little ones,
chuckled Little Hedgehog.
He gazed up at the glittering branches
as snowflakes floated pass his nose.
And a bunch of twinkly twigs for miles he smiled.
Little Hedgehog wandered on through the trees,
looking for the best twigs he could find.
The wood grew darker, and the snowflakes swirled faster around him.
"Phew!" he gasped, struggling with the basket.
"However shall I get home?"
At last, the snow stopped, and a bright moon peeped 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 pat-pat-patting noise
getting closer and closer until...
"Eek!" yelped Fox bumping into Little Hedgehog.
"You look like a walking Christmas tree."
Little Hedgehog and Fox chuckled and chatted all the way home.
Fox put the presents around 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!"
That was called One Christmas Night.
I'm glad Little Hedgehog remembered the presents.
Maybe I could give someone a carrot cake.
The cake for Rabbit looked delicious.
While I set to work on that, it's time for you to go to bed
and dream magical Christmas dreams of sparkly lights and twinkly stars.
I'll see you soon for another story. Night, night.
