CBeebies Bedtime Story.

0:00:020:00:06

Wow, that's incredible.

0:00:070:00:09

I can't believe that!

0:00:090:00:11

Oh, hello. I'm Warwick.

0:00:110:00:13

I was just reading this story in the moospaper. It's quite incredible.

0:00:130:00:17

The cows and chickens can't believe it. Neither can I.

0:00:170:00:21

In fact, why don't I tell you the story

0:00:210:00:24

and you can decide for yourselves.

0:00:240:00:26

The story is by Andy Cutbill and Russell Ayto,

0:00:260:00:29

and is called The Cow That Laid An Egg.

0:00:290:00:32

Marjorie the cow felt down in the dumps.

0:00:320:00:35

"What's wrong, Marj?" clucked the chickens.

0:00:350:00:40

"I don't feel special," said Marjorie.

0:00:400:00:43

"I can't ride bicycles and do handstands, like the other cows.

0:00:430:00:47

"I just feel so ordinary."

0:00:470:00:50

That night, the chickens hatched a cunning plan.

0:00:500:00:54

"Cluck, cluck, cluck", they whispered.

0:00:540:00:58

In the morning, there was an almighty commotion in the barnyard.

0:00:580:01:02

"I've laid an egg!" shrieked Marjorie.

0:01:020:01:06

All the other cows were astonished.

0:01:060:01:08

None of them had ever laid an egg before.

0:01:080:01:11

Even the farmer came running.

0:01:110:01:13

"Oh, my goodness!" he cried.

0:01:130:01:16

"Marjorie's laid an egg!"

0:01:160:01:18

The farmer's wife called the newspaper.

0:01:180:01:21

People came from far and wide.

0:01:210:01:23

"We're extremely proud of Marjorie," announced the farmer to the crowd.

0:01:230:01:28

Marjorie felt much more special now,

0:01:280:01:31

and the chickens were as pleased as punch too.

0:01:310:01:34

But the other cows weren't so happy.

0:01:340:01:38

Bicycle riding and handstands feel rather ordinary now.

0:01:390:01:43

Something funny is going on.

0:01:430:01:46

Cows don't lay eggs. Chickens lay eggs!

0:01:460:01:51

"We don't think you laid that egg," a cow said to Marjorie.

0:01:510:01:55

"We think the crafty chickens did it."

0:01:550:01:58

Marjorie felt shocked.

0:01:580:02:00

"Prove it!" said the chickens.

0:02:010:02:04

So they all waited for the egg to hatch.

0:02:040:02:07

Day after day they watched

0:02:070:02:09

as Marjorie sat on the egg to keep it warm, but nothing happened.

0:02:090:02:14

Until suddenly, one morning they heard a noise.

0:02:140:02:18

Tap, tap, tap.

0:02:180:02:21

"Oh, here it comes," shouted one of the cows.

0:02:210:02:24

As Marjorie stood up, "tap, tap, tap".

0:02:240:02:28

The egg cracked open and out hopped a small, brown feathery bundle.

0:02:280:02:36

"Oh, there!" said one of the cows, nodding. "A chicken!"

0:02:360:02:41

Suddenly, the tiny creature looked up at Marjorie.

0:02:420:02:46

"Moo!" it said loudly.

0:02:460:02:49

Marjorie smiled and held her baby tight.

0:02:490:02:52

"A cow," she said,

0:02:520:02:55

and she promptly named it Daisy.

0:02:550:02:59

And that story was called The Cow That Laid An Egg.

0:02:590:03:03

So what do you think?

0:03:030:03:05

Incredible!

0:03:050:03:07

I'm not surprised it made the front pages of the moospaper.

0:03:070:03:10

I wonder if there are any other amazing stories in here.

0:03:100:03:14

I'll just have a quick look.

0:03:140:03:16

Oh, and while I do, it's time for you to go to bed.

0:03:160:03:19

I'll see you soon for another story. Night-night.

0:03:190:03:23

Now, let's see, what's the big story on the centre pages?

0:03:230:03:27

Ah! Very interesting.
