CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Hello. My name is Nicky.
Are you ready for a story?
Tonight's Bedtime Story is all about a tiny mouse who sets out
on a very big adventure.
It's called "Can I Come Too?"
and is by Brian Patten and Nicola Bayley.
A very small mouse decided it wanted to have a very big adventure.
"I'll go and find the biggest creature in the world," it thought.
By the lake, it met the frog.
"Are you the biggest creature in the world?" it asked.
"No," said Frog.
But it's very brave of you to look for it. Can I come too?
"Of course," said the mouse.
"Just because we're small doesn't mean we can't have a big adventure."
On a branch overhanging the river, they met a bird...
made out of rainbows.
It was the kingfisher.
"I'm a rather small bird, but I'd love to see what the biggest
"creature in the world is. Can I come too?"
Dozing on a wall in the sunlight was the cat.
It opened an eye as they passed, and said...
"I'm curious to see the biggest creature in the world.
"I'll come too."
They met an otter on the river bank, where wild flowers grew.
"Perhaps you're the biggest creature in the world," said the mouse.
"I'm afraid not," said the otter.
"but I wonder what is.
"Can I come too?"
In the wood, where everything glowed with a green light, sat the badger.
"Its legs are far too short for it to be the biggest creature,"
sniffed the cat.
"But I'd love to see what is," said the badger. "Can I come too?"
They crossed a little bridge in a small valley full of tiny things.
Dragonflies darted about, lizards lazed on the stones
and a water vole washed its whiskers at the river's edge.
But they saw nothing big, so on they went.
When they saw the dog, the cat said,
"He's the scruffiest creature in the world,
"but he's certainly not the biggest."
And the dog said, "I wonder what on Earth the biggest thing is."
Can I come too?
Halfway up a tree on the mountainside,
they met the goat.
"I can see some very large creatures from up here," it said.
"Well, I'm looking for the biggest of them all," said the mouse.
And the goat said, "Can I come too?"
In the zoo, they saw a tiger with paws as big as frying pans.
"You're the most fantastic creature in the world," declared the mouse.
"But I'm not the biggest," said the tiger.
"If I promise not to eat anyone, can I come too?"
Polar Bear followed them out of the zoo.
Its coat was as white as snow.
"I know where the biggest creature in the world lives," it said.
"It swims in the ocean where the river ends,
"and I'm going to see it now."
And the little mouse said, "Can we all come too?"
So off they went.
The mouse, the frog, the kingfisher, the otter, the cat,
the badger, the dog, the goat, the tiger
and the polar bear followed the river to the ocean.
The mouse was VERY excited.
"I wonder what I'm going to see."
It was something as big as an island.
Something bigger than one million mice.
Seagulls flew above it.
Dolphins leapt around it.
The animals stood watching the whale
until it plunged back beneath the waves.
"We would never have seen such a wonderful thing without you,"
they said to the little mouse.
And the little mouse said, "I'm so glad you could all come too."
And then...night fell,
and all the sleepy creatures decided it was time to go back home.
The mouse was so happy to have seen the biggest creature in the world.
That night, it thought to itself,
"I might be tiny, but I've had a very big adventure."
And then it curled up into a little ball and fell fast asleep.
And that story was called "Can I Come Too?"
I hope you enjoyed it.
Maybe you'll go on a very big adventure in your dreams, tonight.
Now, snuggle up and I'll see you again soon
for another Bedtime Story.
