And in tonight's story, we're finding out about a little girl

0:00:010:00:02

Ollie. Ollie. Great news! I've got the most wonderful story for you.

0:00:080:00:13

Oh! I'm forgetting. You should never excite an elephant.

0:00:130:00:18

Hello. I'm Maureen.

0:00:180:00:20

And in tonight's story, we're finding out about a little girl

0:00:200:00:23

who goes to the zoo and ignores all sorts of rules, like that.

0:00:230:00:28

It's called Never Tickle A Tiger.

0:00:280:00:31

And it's written by Pamela Butchart, with pictures by Marc Boutavant.

0:00:310:00:36

Izzy was forever shuffling and jiggling,

0:00:380:00:41

squirming and twitching, wriggling and fiddling.

0:00:410:00:44

MEOW

0:00:440:00:46

She just couldn't help it.

0:00:460:00:47

It happened at home.

0:00:480:00:50

"Izzy, stop playing with your peas," said Dad.

0:00:500:00:55

At school. "Izzy, stop painting your pigtails," said Miss Potterhurst

0:00:550:01:01

At Grandma's. "Izzy, stop knotting my knitting," said Grandma.

0:01:030:01:10

And as for parties, well.

0:01:100:01:11

"Izzy! Stop jiggling the jelly!" cried everyone.

0:01:130:01:19

No matter how hard she tried, Izzy just couldn't keep still.

0:01:190:01:23

"It's no good," she sighed. "I'm just a jiggler, and that's that."

0:01:240:01:28

So when, one day, Class 4B went on a trip to the zoo,

0:01:290:01:33

it came as no surprise to anyone that Izzy was wriggling, jiggling,

0:01:330:01:38

shuffling and fiddling, as soon as they walked through the zoo gates.

0:01:380:01:41

"Erm, stop stroking the snakes!"

0:01:430:01:46

called Miss Potterhurst.

0:01:460:01:48

"Don't excite the elephants!"

0:01:480:01:50

"Forget about bothering the bears!"

0:01:510:01:54

IZZY GIGGLES

0:01:540:01:55

BEAR SNORES

0:01:560:01:58

"Don't mess with the monkeys!"

0:01:590:02:01

MONKEYS CHATTER

0:02:010:02:03

"Izzy, Izzy! Stop tapping the tortoises."

0:02:030:02:06

IZZY TAPS TORTOISE

0:02:060:02:08

"And oh! Stop poking the peacock!"

0:02:110:02:13

PEACOCK CAWS

0:02:130:02:15

"And never, EVER, tickle a tiger!"

0:02:150:02:18

At lunchtime, Izzy sat shuffling her sandwiches.

0:02:200:02:24

"It's so unfair," she said. "I'm never allowed to do anything.

0:02:240:02:29

"And what's wrong with fidgeting, anyway?"

0:02:290:02:31

Little did Izzy know that she was about to find out.

0:02:320:02:36

Whilst all the other children finished their lunch,

0:02:360:02:40

Izzy fidgeted her feet...

0:02:400:02:42

..bounced across the bench, shimmied onto the floor,

0:02:430:02:46

wriggled under a bush, skipped past the aviary

0:02:460:02:50

and danced along a path all the way to the tiger enclosure.

0:02:500:02:54

"I wonder!" thought Izzy.

0:02:560:02:58

And with that, she reached out a feather

0:02:580:03:02

and tick-tick-tick-tick-tickled the tiger.

0:03:020:03:07

"RAAAAAA-AAAARGH!"

0:03:070:03:10

roared the tiger.

0:03:100:03:11

He threw his furry paws in the air, which broke a branch,

0:03:110:03:16

which startled a snake,

0:03:160:03:18

who bit a bear,

0:03:180:03:19

who walloped a walrus,

0:03:190:03:21

who splashed a sloth,

0:03:210:03:24

who punched a penguin,

0:03:240:03:26

who kicked a croc,

0:03:260:03:27

who snapped at a skunk,

0:03:270:03:29

who ponged a panda,

0:03:290:03:30

who rammed a rhino,

0:03:300:03:32

who hit the hippo,

0:03:320:03:34

who wibbled and wobbled and SPLASH!

0:03:340:03:37

The lion roared, the parrot squawked, the snakes hissed

0:03:380:03:42

and the elephants trumpeted loudly.

0:03:420:03:45

Miss Potterhurst squealed, the children giggled

0:03:450:03:48

and the zookeeper came running.

0:03:480:03:50

It was pandemonium.

0:03:500:03:53

And it was all Izzy's fault.

0:03:530:03:55

But then...

0:03:550:03:57

"STO-O-P!"

0:03:570:03:59

shouted Izzy,

0:03:590:04:01

at the top of her voice.

0:04:010:04:02

"Stop squealing, squawking, splashing and flapping.

0:04:040:04:07

"Enough running, ramming and bumping.

0:04:070:04:10

"No jiggling, wriggling, shuffling and squirming."

0:04:100:04:14

And guess what...?

0:04:140:04:16

It worked.

0:04:160:04:18

The zookeeper stopped running.

0:04:180:04:19

Miss Potterhurst stopped squealing.

0:04:210:04:24

The children stopped giggling.

0:04:240:04:27

And all the animals went back to their homes.

0:04:270:04:29

And as for Izzy...

0:04:310:04:32

"You were right all along, Miss Potterhurst," she said.

0:04:330:04:37

"I'll never, ever tickle a tiger again."

0:04:370:04:39

"But...

0:04:390:04:41

"what can be the harm of prodding a polar bear?"

0:04:410:04:43

She thought.

0:04:430:04:45

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

0:04:480:04:51

And I hope you did too! Hmm?

0:04:510:04:54

Oh, Tiger, did you brush your teeth?

0:04:550:04:57

OK. Elephant, did you wash behind your ears? Ooh, yes.

0:04:590:05:02

Goodbye, we're all ready for bed!

0:05:020:05:04

And I hope you are too! Sleep well.

0:05:050:05:08

Night-night. Night-night.

0:05:080:05:10
