Hello, I'm Tom and this is Woody.

0:00:070:00:09

We've been invited to a very special party

0:00:090:00:12

in tonight's bedtime story

0:00:120:00:14

and we've been told to wear a hat.

0:00:140:00:16

Perfect. Tonight's story is called You Must Bring A Hat

0:00:180:00:22

and is written by Simon Philip with pictures by Kate Hindley.

0:00:220:00:26

I received an invitation to a party.

0:00:270:00:30

"You are cordially invited to the biggest, bestest,

0:00:300:00:34

"hattiest party of all time. Starts at 5.30.

0:00:340:00:37

"Wide Brim House, 32 Panama Avenue, West Trilby.

0:00:370:00:40

"You may bring as many extra guests as you wish

0:00:400:00:44

"but you must bring a hat.

0:00:440:00:47

"Kindest regards, Nigel - host and fanciest-hat judge.

0:00:470:00:53

"PS, seriously, don't forget the hat.

0:00:530:00:55

"The party depends on it.

0:00:550:00:57

"PPS, try not to be late this time."

0:00:570:01:01

Immediately, I panicked.

0:01:010:01:03

I didn't own a hat and the invitation specifically stated

0:01:030:01:07

that I must bring a hat - the party depended on it.

0:01:070:01:10

I searched everywhere for a hat but the only hat I could find

0:01:100:01:14

belonged to a monkey - and that is a lovely hat.

0:01:140:01:17

"Can I borrow it, please?" "No."

0:01:190:01:22

"I really, really need a hat for a party. I will give it back."

0:01:220:01:25

As he wouldn't negotiate, I was left with no choice.

0:01:250:01:29

At least I had a hat, even if it was still attached to a monkey,

0:01:290:01:32

but on arrival, the security was pretty tight.

0:01:320:01:35

"Invitation, please," said the doorman.

0:01:350:01:38

Apparently, there were other rules, too.

0:01:380:01:40

"Sorry, sir, but we're under strict instructions not to let in

0:01:400:01:44

"any hat-wearing monkeys,

0:01:440:01:46

"unless they are also wearing a monocle."

0:01:460:01:50

Luckily, we soon bumped into a badger named Geoff

0:01:500:01:53

and he was just the sort of badger we required.

0:01:530:01:56

"I do beg your pardon, chaps, but are you by any chance

0:01:560:02:00

"after a monocle?"

0:02:000:02:02

"Indeed we are. We need it for a party."

0:02:020:02:06

"I will lend this monkey my monocle,

0:02:060:02:09

"on the condition that I may accompany you to your shindig."

0:02:090:02:14

Mm!

0:02:140:02:16

"Invitation, please," the doorman said again.

0:02:160:02:19

"Sorry, sir, but we're under strict instructions not to let in

0:02:190:02:22

"any hat and monocle-wearing monkeys,

0:02:220:02:25

"if they are accompanied by a badger called Geoff."

0:02:250:02:29

"Unless Geoff can pay the piano."

0:02:300:02:32

"Can you play the piano?" I asked.

0:02:320:02:34

"Don't insult me. I'm a badger. Of course I can."

0:02:340:02:37

"Geoff can play," I said, firmly.

0:02:370:02:40

"I'm afraid we need to see that," the doorman replied.

Geoff was good, but we still had a problem.

0:02:460:02:50

"Sorry, we can't let this piano-lending elephant in.

0:02:500:02:53

"He's not wearing a tutu."

0:02:530:02:55

It's just typical. There's never, ever a tutu around

0:02:550:02:58

when you need one.

0:02:580:02:59

But we sorted that problem surprisingly quickly.

0:02:590:03:02

Surely NOW we'd be allowed in... But we'd failed to notice the sign.

0:03:020:03:07

"Under no circumstances is a tutu to be worn

0:03:080:03:12

"without the supervision of an accompanying penguin."

0:03:120:03:17

Ah.

0:03:180:03:21

Martin kindly helped us out

0:03:210:03:23

and as he was a very clever penguin,

0:03:230:03:25

we were already prepared for the next rule.

0:03:250:03:28

"All penguins accompanying pink tutu-wearing elephants

0:03:280:03:31

"must bring with them a suitcase full of cheese."

0:03:310:03:35

But it turned out the cheese needed to be sliced

0:03:350:03:37

and none of us had thought to bring a knife.

0:03:370:03:39

And that was when I broke. I said, "Look.

0:03:390:03:42

"These are the silliest rules I have ever heard.

0:03:420:03:45

"Nigel clearly stated on his invitation that I could bring

0:03:450:03:49

"anyone I wanted, so long as I brought a hat

0:03:490:03:52

"and I brought a monkey in a hat,

0:03:520:03:54

"so technically I brought a hat, and..."

0:03:540:03:57

"Nigel?" said the doorman.

0:03:570:04:00

"Who's Nigel?

0:04:000:04:01

"This is Felicity's party."

0:04:020:04:05

"This isn't number 32?"

0:04:060:04:09

"Next door."

0:04:090:04:10

Oops.

0:04:140:04:16

Still, Nigel's party was worth the hassle,

0:04:160:04:19

even if we were a little bit late.

At least he got the party in the end and it was a lot of fun.

0:04:280:04:31

I don't think that I've ever danced

0:04:310:04:33

with an elephant wearing a tutu before.

0:04:330:04:35

Or have I? All that partying, to be fair, has completely worn me out

0:04:380:04:42

and I'm sure you are feeling very sleepy, too.

0:04:420:04:45

I will see you for another bedtime story.

0:04:450:04:48

Sleep tight.

0:04:480:04:50

You're all invited to a party with Tom Hardy in tonight's bedtime story but there is one rule... you must bring a hat!
