What's that, chicken?
Well, yeah, I know we can't see in the dark.
That's why we've got this torch, to help us see when it gets dark.
Hello, I'm Simon.
I was explaining to Chicken that it's a good idea
to have a torch to help you see at night when you go outside,
but Little Pippa, in tonight's bedtime story,
thinks she can find a way to see in the dark without a torch.
The story is by Kristyna Litten
and is called Chickens Can't See In The Dark.
On Sunnyside Farm, there is one chicken that all the other
chickens are talking about, and her name is Little Pippa.
It all started when Mr Benedict told his class,
"As sure is eggs is eggs, chickens can't see in the dark."
Little Pippa was very disappointed.
She wanted to see in the dark more than anything
and she knew someone who might be able to help.
As soon as school was over, she went to Mr Owl's treehouse.
"A chicken who wants to see in the dark?" said Mr Owl.
"What a hoot!"
And he laughed so much, he nearly fell off his chair!
"Mr Owl wasn't very helpful at all," thought Little Pippa
so she decided to go to Miss Featherbrain's library instead.
Miss Featherbrain was puzzled when Pippa asked where
she could find a book about seeing in the dark.
"Chickens can't see in the dark," she said.
"That's just an old hen's tale," so Pippa searched high and low
until she found a book called Old Hens' Tales.
And there it was - tale no. 264,
Carrots Help You See In The Dark.
"Carrots! I need carrots," Pippa squawked,
and off she scrambled to the farm shop.
"What will a little chicken like you do with all those carrots?"
asked Granny Bumblefoot.
"I'm going to see in the dark," said Little Pippa.
"Oh, my feet and feathers!" laughed granny Bumblefoot.
"Chickens seeing in the dark! Whatever next?"
But Pippa was already on her way home.
She wanted to know how many carrots would help her see in the dark.
She ate one carrot,
After carrot number four,
Pippa decided the best thing to do would be to eat ALL the carrots,
so she headed to Mother Hen's pantry
to cook up the biggest carrot banquet ever.
Little Pippa made carrot cookies,
hot carrot chowder,
crispy carrot crunchies,
carrot curry, carrot croutons,
carrot custard, carrot quiche,
and chewy carrot caramels.
The delicious smells of Little Pippa's banquet
wafted over Sunnyside Farm and,
before you could say cock-a-doodle-doo,
all the chickens were outside Mother Hen's pantry.
"I'm going to be the first chicken that can see in the dark,"
said Pippa, as she got ready to spread out her carrot feast.
The chickens looked at each other and laughed.
Then they looked at the cookies,
the quiches, custards, curries,
cordials and cupcakes.
It all looked very tasty. It looked impossible to resist.
As the sky grew dark, the chickens gasped with delight.
They could see things they'd never seen before -
twinkly stars, shimmery shadows and a beautiful moon.
"We were wrong and you were right,"
they squawked, as they gathered around Pippa.
Chickens CAN see in the dark.
Mr Benedict gave Pippa a friendly pat
and Miss Featherbrain gave her a peck on the cheek,
which made Pippa blush.
Or perhaps it was just all those carrots.
That story was called Chickens Can't See In The Dark,
or maybe they could, if they ate carrots.
Have you looked out of your window
and seen the twinkly stars and the beautiful moon?
Could you see them or do you need to eat carrots tomorrow?
Well, it's time for you to go to bed.
I'll see you soon for another bedtime story. Night-night.
You fancy some carrots, Chicken? Go on, have a nibble!
