CBeebies Bedtime Story.

Hiya, I'm James.

0:00:060:00:08

Tonight's bedtime story is called Wee Granny's Magic Bag

0:00:080:00:12

and it's by Elizabeth McKay and Maria Bogade.

0:00:120:00:16

Are you sitting comfortably?

0:00:160:00:18

Good. Then I'll begin.

0:00:180:00:20

Emily and Harry were excited.

0:00:210:00:24

They were waiting for Wee Granny to arrive.

0:00:240:00:27

She was taking them to the park

0:00:270:00:29

while Mum helped get ready for the school fair.

0:00:290:00:31

They loved going places with Wee Granny.

0:00:310:00:34

They hoped she'd bring her tartan bag.

0:00:340:00:36

Surprising things always happened

0:00:360:00:39

when Wee Granny brought her bag.

0:00:390:00:41

Last Christmas, Wee Granny and the children went carol singing.

0:00:410:00:45

And when Harry's candle burned right down to a stump,

0:00:450:00:48

Wee Granny reached into her tartan bag

0:00:480:00:51

and pulled out...

0:00:510:00:52

a lamppost to help him see.

0:00:520:00:55

Last summer, Wee Granny took the children to the seaside.

0:00:560:01:00

When they got to the beach, she reached into her tartan bag

0:01:000:01:04

and pulled out three deckchairs.

0:01:040:01:07

Stripy ones for herself and Harry,

0:01:070:01:10

and a pink one for Emily

0:01:100:01:11

because that was her favourite colour.

0:01:110:01:13

"Wee Granny's coming!" Mum called out at last.

0:01:130:01:17

"Hello, my bonnie darlings," Wee Granny said.

0:01:170:01:20

"I've brought sandwiches and orange juice for our picnic in the park."

0:01:200:01:25

"Thank you, Wee Granny," said Emily and Harry.

0:01:250:01:29

"Have a nice time," Mum said as she waved them goodbye.

0:01:290:01:32

"And remember to be good."

0:01:320:01:34

"Would you like to sit down, Wee Granny?" Emily asked

0:01:350:01:38

when they reached the park.

0:01:380:01:40

"On a deckchair, perhaps?"

0:01:400:01:43

"Let's find a picnic bench," replied Wee Granny.

0:01:440:01:48

While Wee Granny was getting the picnic things from her bag,

0:01:490:01:53

the children tried to peek inside,

0:01:530:01:55

but she snapped it shut.

0:01:550:01:57

Harry couldn't stand it any longer.

0:01:580:02:01

"Wee Granny," he asked,

0:02:010:02:04

"did you bring anything else in your bag?"

0:02:040:02:08

"I've brought my phone," Wee Granny said.

0:02:080:02:12

"You never know when somebody might call."

0:02:120:02:15

Emily and Harry were disappointed.

0:02:150:02:18

Then, they heard a ringing noise coming from Wee Granny's bag.

0:02:180:02:22

Brriiiing! Brriiiing!

0:02:220:02:24

She reached inside and pulled out...

0:02:240:02:26

a bright red

0:02:260:02:28

old-fashioned telephone box.

0:02:280:02:31

"I won't be long, my bonnie darlings," she said,

0:02:310:02:34

stepping inside the box and closing the door.

0:02:340:02:37

The children stared wide-eyed

0:02:370:02:39

as they watched Wee Granny chattering inside.

0:02:390:02:42

"That was your mum.

0:02:420:02:44

"They need more cupcakes for the school fair,

0:02:440:02:46

"so she asked me to make some.

0:02:460:02:48

"Will you help me, my bonnie darlings?"

0:02:480:02:51

"Yes, please," yelled the children.

0:02:510:02:53

They loved baking.

0:02:530:02:55

"I'll need a big mixing bowl," said Wee Granny.

0:02:550:02:59

"I'm sure I've got one in here somewhere."

0:02:590:03:02

She rummaged in her tartan bag and brought out a bowl.

0:03:020:03:05

"And I need kitchen scales,

0:03:050:03:08

"a cupcake tin,

0:03:080:03:10

"flour, butter,

0:03:100:03:12

"sugar and eggs.

0:03:120:03:14

"And, of course, to bake the cakes,

0:03:140:03:17

"I'll need a nice hot oven,"

0:03:170:03:21

Wee Granny said, peering inside her bag.

0:03:210:03:24

Harry and Emily looked at each other

0:03:240:03:26

and they shook their heads.

0:03:260:03:28

No-one, not even Wee Granny,

0:03:280:03:31

could carry an oven around in her bag.

0:03:310:03:34

Could she?

0:03:340:03:36

"Be careful, my bonnie darlings,"

0:03:360:03:38

Wee Granny said, placing the oven on the ground.

0:03:380:03:42

"Don't go too close, it's very hot."

0:03:420:03:46

Everyone was busy weighing and measuring and mixing.

0:03:460:03:50

Soon, a warm smell of baking filled the park.

0:03:500:03:54

"Time to do the washing up,"

0:03:540:03:56

Wee Granny said when the children had scraped the baking bowl clean.

0:03:560:04:00

Wee Granny reached into her tartan bag.

0:04:000:04:02

"Oh, deary me," she said.

0:04:020:04:06

"I forgot to bring the kitchen sink.

0:04:060:04:09

"We'll have to wash the dishes in the pond.

0:04:090:04:11

"Quick, my bonnie darlings.

0:04:110:04:13

"People are starting to stare."

0:04:130:04:16

Emily and Harry looked up to see a small crowd gathering around them.

0:04:160:04:20

By the time they'd finished washing up,

0:04:200:04:22

the cupcakes were ready.

0:04:220:04:24

They placed them carefully inside some boxes.

0:04:240:04:27

You can probably guess where they got the boxes.

0:04:270:04:30

"Uh-oh." said Harry, "I can see a policeman coming."

0:04:300:04:35

"Hurry, children," said Wee Granny,

0:04:350:04:38

"let's clear everything away."

0:04:380:04:40

Wee Granny opened up her bag, and in went...

0:04:400:04:43

the eggs, the sugar,

0:04:430:04:45

the butter, the flour,

0:04:450:04:47

the cake tin, the kitchen scales

0:04:470:04:49

and the mixing bowl.

0:04:490:04:51

"Wow," whispered Harry and Emily

0:04:510:04:54

as they watched Wee Granny

0:04:540:04:55

squee-eeze

0:04:550:04:57

the enormous oven into her tartan bag.

0:04:570:05:01

Then, Wee Granny closed her bag,

0:05:020:05:05

put it under her arm,

0:05:050:05:06

and took the children to the school

0:05:060:05:08

to meet their mum and Mrs Graham, their teacher.

0:05:080:05:11

"Thank you, Wee Granny," said Mrs Graham.

0:05:110:05:15

"Now we've got lots of cakes to sell on Saturday."

0:05:150:05:18

And she gave the children a cupcake each for helping.

0:05:180:05:21

"Don't eat them until you've had your supper," said Mum.

0:05:210:05:25

"Can we put them in your bag, Wee Granny?" asked Harry.

0:05:250:05:28

"Of course," said Wee Granny.

0:05:280:05:31

"I don't have much in it today."

0:05:310:05:34

"What about...?"

0:05:340:05:35

"Sh-sh-sh, Emily," said Wee Granny.

0:05:350:05:39

"It's time to go home."

0:05:390:05:42

"Are you coming to the school fair on Saturday?"

0:05:420:05:44

asked Emily on the way home.

0:05:440:05:46

"Of course, my bonnie darling,"

0:05:460:05:48

said Wee Granny. "I'm going with Bert."

0:05:480:05:52

"Who's Bert?" asked Harry.

0:05:520:05:54

"Bert is my friend," said Wee Granny.

0:05:540:05:57

"Would you like to meet him?"

0:05:570:05:59

The children nodded.

0:05:590:06:01

Wee Granny reached into her tartan bag, and pulled out...

0:06:010:06:04

"Eee-yaaaw!

0:06:040:06:05

"Eee-yaaaw!"

0:06:060:06:10

"Bert and I are in charge of the donkey rides."

0:06:100:06:13

"Wow!" said Emily.

0:06:130:06:15

"Wee Granny," said Harry,

0:06:150:06:18

"is your bag magic?"

0:06:180:06:20

"Of course not," said Wee Granny with a wink.

0:06:200:06:23

"I just like to be prepared."

0:06:230:06:26

That story was called Wee Granny's Magic Bag.

0:06:270:06:29

It's bedtime now,

0:06:310:06:32

so off you go to get snuggled up for the night.

0:06:320:06:35

Maybe you'll have a magical dream tonight.

0:06:350:06:38

I do hope so.

0:06:380:06:39

I'll be back again very soon with another bedtime story.

0:06:390:06:43

Good night.

0:06:430:06:45

Zzzzz...
