Oh, hello!

0:00:070:00:08

Are you ready to go on a magical adventure

0:00:080:00:11

in tonight's Bedtime Story, with me, Rebecca?

0:00:110:00:14

Brilliant!

0:00:140:00:15

It's all about a little girl who loves to draw, just like me.

0:00:150:00:19

And it's called Doodle Girl and the Monkey Mystery

0:00:190:00:23

and it's by Suzanne Smith and Lindsay Taylor,

0:00:230:00:26

with pictures by Marnie Maurri.

0:00:260:00:29

This is Doodle Girl.

0:00:310:00:34

She lives in a big red sketch book.

0:00:340:00:37

But it's not just any sketch book.

0:00:370:00:40

It's a magic sketch book.

0:00:400:00:42

And Doodle Girl has a magic pencil too.

0:00:420:00:46

Whenever she whispers the words,

0:00:460:00:49

"Draw, draw, draw,"

0:00:490:00:51

amazing adventures begin to unfold.

0:00:510:00:55

All it takes is a doodle.

0:00:550:00:57

One day, Doodle Girl was taking a stroll with her friends,

0:00:590:01:02

when they discovered a pointy shape in the sketch book.

0:01:020:01:06

"Doodling daydreams! Whatever could it be?" said Doodle Girl.

0:01:080:01:12

Mr Whizzy and Miss Ladybird wanted to play.

0:01:140:01:17

Was it a see-saw? See-saw! See-saw!

0:01:180:01:22

The Small Squeakies were sure it was cheese.

0:01:240:01:26

It just had to be yummy, scrummy cheese!

0:01:270:01:31

Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!

0:01:310:01:34

But Doodle Girl had another idea.

0:01:340:01:36

"Draw, draw, draw," she whispered.

0:01:370:01:41

And with a dash here and a dot there,

0:01:420:01:44

and a squiggle of her magic pencil,

0:01:440:01:47

the pointy shape soon became something fabulous.

0:01:470:01:51

A magnificent aeroplane.

0:01:530:01:55

"Ta-da!" said Doodle Girl.

0:01:560:01:58

"Pop your goggles on, everyone. It's time for an adventure!

0:01:590:02:03

"Let's go!"

0:02:030:02:05

Up, up, up, they soared,

0:02:050:02:09

through the clouds and across the shimmering ocean.

0:02:090:02:12

Little Birdie spotted something.

0:02:130:02:16

"Look, an island! Hold on tight!

0:02:160:02:19

"This might get a bit bumpy!" said Doodle Girl.

0:02:190:02:24

But it wasn't bumpy at all.

0:02:240:02:27

Down, down, down they gently glided,

0:02:270:02:32

until they landed on a beach.

0:02:320:02:36

"Let's explore," said Doodle Girl.

0:02:360:02:39

They followed a sandy path,

0:02:400:02:42

which led deeper and deeper into the cool jungle,

0:02:420:02:47

until they reached... a smelly swamp.

0:02:470:02:53

"Haroooooo! Haroooooo! Haroooooo!"

0:02:530:02:56

"Doodling daydreams! Whatever's that?" said Doodle Girl.

0:02:580:03:02

"Look up! Look up!" said the Small Squeakies.

0:03:040:03:07

It was a little monkey. He was dangling upside down in a tree.

0:03:080:03:12

"Haroooooo!"

0:03:140:03:16

Below him were two crocodiles,

0:03:160:03:18

swimming in slow circles and watching him closely.

0:03:180:03:22

Very closely.

0:03:220:03:25

"He's stuck," said Doodle Girl.

0:03:250:03:27

"We've got to help him."

0:03:270:03:29

Suddenly, there was a load creak. Creeeaaak!

0:03:300:03:34

The branch was breaking!

0:03:360:03:38

But Doodle Girl knew just what to do.

0:03:400:03:44

Whispering to her magic pencil, "Draw, draw, draw,"

0:03:440:03:50

she swirled a dash here and a dot there.

0:03:500:03:56

"Ta-da!"

0:03:560:03:58

"A giant spoon?" asked Little Birdie.

0:03:580:04:01

"Exactly," said Doodle Girl.

0:04:030:04:05

"Jump, little monkey. Jump."

0:04:070:04:10

Little monkey bravely let go of the branch.

0:04:100:04:13

Plomp! He landed safely in the spoon.

0:04:140:04:18

But the crocodiles had crawled out of the swamp and they were

0:04:200:04:24

coming towards them.

0:04:240:04:26

Squelsh! Squash! Squelsh! Squash!

0:04:260:04:29

"Uh-oh!"

0:04:290:04:32

So, with a quick "Draw, draw, draw,"

0:04:320:04:36

Doodle Girl whisked out her magic pencil

0:04:360:04:39

and drew a giant ice cream.

0:04:390:04:43

"Crocodiles, it's dinner time!" called Doodle Girl.

0:04:450:04:49

Everyone smiled, as blob after blob of yummy ice cream flew into

0:04:500:04:55

the mouths of the hungry crocodiles.

0:04:550:04:57

They soon had full tummies.

0:04:590:05:02

"What a snip-snappy tasty adventure!" laughed Doodle Girl.

0:05:020:05:08

And after an amazing ice cream party,

0:05:080:05:11

it was time to go back to the pages of the big red sketch book.

0:05:110:05:18

Doodle Girl looked at the pointy shape.

0:05:180:05:21

"Now I know what it's for," she said to herself.

0:05:210:05:24

And with a final, "Draw, draw, draw,"

0:05:260:05:30

she doodled each of her friends a perfect little aeroplane.

0:05:300:05:34

"Happy doodling, everyone!"

0:05:360:05:38

I hope you enjoyed that story as much as I did.

0:05:380:05:42

Imagine living in a big red sketch book, just like Doodle Girl.

0:05:420:05:47

Maybe you'll dream of doodling tonight.

0:05:470:05:50

Or maybe you'll go on an adventure with Doodle Girl herself.

0:05:500:05:54

Sweet dreams. Night-night.
