Hello. I'm Adjoa.
Doesn't this fruit look delicious?
What's your favourite fruit?
I love the mango. Yummy.
Well, in tonight's bedtime story,
a basket of fruit just like this one is very popular.
See if you can spot what happens to it.
The story is called Handa's Surprise, and it's by Eileen Browne.
Handa put seven delicious fruits in a basket for her friend Akeyo.
"She will be surprised," thought Handa
as she set off for Akeyo's village.
"I wonder which fruit she'll like best.
"Will she like the soft yellow banana?
"Or the sweet-smelling guava?
"Will she like the round juicy orange?
"Or the ripe red mango?
"Will she like the spiky-leaved pineapple?
"The creamy green avocado?
"Or the tangy purple passion fruit?"
"Which fruit will Akeyo like best?
"Hello, Akeyo," said Handa. "I've brought you a surprise."
"Tangerines!" said Akeyo.
"My favourite fruit!"
"Tangerines?" said Handa.
"That is a surprise!"
That story was called Handa's Surprise.
Did you spot what happened to all the fruit?
That's right! Those cheeky animals took it!
Wasn't it lucky there were so many tangerines
for Akeyo and Handa to share?
Well, now it's bedtime.
So snuggle down.
Night-night. Sweet dreams.
And I'll see you soon for another bedtime story.
