CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Wow, that's incredible.
I can't believe that!
Oh, hello. I'm Warwick.
I was just reading this story in the moospaper. It's quite incredible.
The cows and chickens can't believe it. Neither can I.
In fact, why don't I tell you the story
and you can decide for yourselves.
The story is by Andy Cutbill and Russell Ayto,
and is called The Cow That Laid An Egg.
Marjorie the cow felt down in the dumps.
"What's wrong, Marj?" clucked the chickens.
"I don't feel special," said Marjorie.
"I can't ride bicycles and do handstands, like the other cows.
"I just feel so ordinary."
That night, the chickens hatched a cunning plan.
"Cluck, cluck, cluck", they whispered.
In the morning, there was an almighty commotion in the barnyard.
"I've laid an egg!" shrieked Marjorie.
All the other cows were astonished.
None of them had ever laid an egg before.
Even the farmer came running.
"Oh, my goodness!" he cried.
"Marjorie's laid an egg!"
The farmer's wife called the newspaper.
People came from far and wide.
"We're extremely proud of Marjorie," announced the farmer to the crowd.
Marjorie felt much more special now,
and the chickens were as pleased as punch too.
But the other cows weren't so happy.
Bicycle riding and handstands feel rather ordinary now.
Something funny is going on.
Cows don't lay eggs. Chickens lay eggs!
"We don't think you laid that egg," a cow said to Marjorie.
"We think the crafty chickens did it."
Marjorie felt shocked.
"Prove it!" said the chickens.
So they all waited for the egg to hatch.
Day after day they watched
as Marjorie sat on the egg to keep it warm, but nothing happened.
Until suddenly, one morning they heard a noise.
Tap, tap, tap.
"Oh, here it comes," shouted one of the cows.
As Marjorie stood up, "tap, tap, tap".
The egg cracked open and out hopped a small, brown feathery bundle.
"Oh, there!" said one of the cows, nodding. "A chicken!"
Suddenly, the tiny creature looked up at Marjorie.
"Moo!" it said loudly.
Marjorie smiled and held her baby tight.
"A cow," she said,
and she promptly named it Daisy.
And that story was called The Cow That Laid An Egg.
So what do you think?
I'm not surprised it made the front pages of the moospaper.
I wonder if there are any other amazing stories in here.
I'll just have a quick look.
Oh, and while I do, it's time for you to go to bed.
I'll see you soon for another story. Night-night.
Now, let's see, what's the big story on the centre pages?
Ah! Very interesting.
