Hello, I'm Suranne.

0:00:060:00:08

I'm so pleased you've joined me for tonight's bedtime story,

0:00:080:00:11

because I'm about to go on a magical adventure with my lion friend.

0:00:110:00:15

RAAAARGH!

0:00:150:00:17

His name is Albert.

0:00:170:00:19

Would you like to join us?

0:00:200:00:22

Brilliant. Tuck yourself up and get ready to float away.

0:00:220:00:27

Tonight's story is called Before I Wake Up,

0:00:270:00:30

and it's written and illustrated by Britta Teckentrup.

Before I wake up, I float through my dreams

0:00:360:00:40

Imagining worlds never ending, it seems

0:00:400:00:44

Before I wake up, I fly into the night

0:00:440:00:48

I gaze at the stars and the moon shining bright

0:00:480:00:51

In the blue meadow, I'm joined by my friend

0:00:520:00:56

We travel together, in our world without end

0:00:560:01:00

Together we fly, with arms stretched out wide

0:01:000:01:05

Over the seas and leave our worries behind

0:01:050:01:08

Before I wake up, we might face some storms

0:01:100:01:14

But I won't be afraid, I'm safe in your arms

0:01:140:01:17

We feel the wind, we hear the sea, we sing our song together

0:01:190:01:23

We're strong

0:01:230:01:24

Before I wake up, we sail through the seas

0:01:270:01:31

Our boat rocking gently in the soft breeze

0:01:310:01:34

I swim with the whales, I dive into the ocean

0:01:360:01:39

I close my eyes, so full of emotion

0:01:390:01:42

When I open my eyes, we're deep in a wood

0:01:500:01:54

We follow the path, I feel so good

0:01:540:01:57

We meet wild creatures, surrounded by trees

0:01:570:02:01

They say "Happy to meet you, will you stay with us, please?"

0:02:010:02:06

We play through the night, and I have to confess

0:02:060:02:09

That I wish I could stay in this wilderness

0:02:090:02:13

You make me feel safe, you are always near

0:02:130:02:18

That's why I'm brave, without any fear

0:02:180:02:21

But the time has come, as night fades away

0:02:210:02:25

To leave our new friends, and welcome the day

0:02:250:02:28

We run, faster and faster out of the night

0:02:300:02:33

Through the red jungle, towards morning's light

0:02:330:02:37

And when the day dawns, I stand close to my friend

0:02:380:02:42

Goodbye for now, night has come to an end

0:02:430:02:46

When I wake up, the sun kisses my skin

0:02:480:02:51

It's a wonderful world

0:02:530:02:54

Let the new day begin.

0:02:550:02:57

What a magical adventure.

0:02:590:03:01

Those woodland creatures were a friendly bunch, weren't they?

0:03:010:03:05

Now, it's time for you to have your own adventure.

0:03:050:03:08

So cuddle your favourite friend, shut your eyes

0:03:080:03:11

and shoot off to the stars.

0:03:110:03:13

I'll see you very soon.

0:03:130:03:15

Sweet dreams.
