Hello, I'm Dolly.
Do you love books?
A book can take you on an adventure to 1,000 worlds,
which is what our friend Dog discovers
in tonight's Bedtime Story.
It's called Dog Loves Books
and is written and illustrated by Louise Yates.
Dog loved books. He loved the smell of them...
SNIFF, SNIFF, SNIFF!
..he loved the feel of them,
he loved everything about them.
Dog loved books
so much that he decided to open his own book shop.
He unwrapped, unpacked and stacked the books,
ready for the grand opening.
When the day of the grand opening finally came,
Dog had a bath,
dried his hair,
blew his nose
and threw open the doors to greet his new customers.
FANFARE PLAYS But there was no-one there,
so Dog tried to keep busy
and then a lady came into the shop.
"I'll have a tea with milk and two sugars," she said.
"I'm sorry," said Dog, "but this is a book shop, I only sell books!"
The lady walked out.
Dog was alone, he waited and waited.
CLOCK TICKS AND DOG WHIMPERS
Then, a man came into the shop to ask for directions
and when he left, Dog was downhearted.
But not for long, he wouldn't wait a moment more.
Dog fetched a book from the shelf and began to read,
and when he read, he forgot that he was waiting.
When he read, he forgot that he was alone.
When he read, he forgot that he was in the book shop,
and when one adventure ended, Dog simply took another
book down from the shelf and a new adventure began.
BOING, BOING, BOING!
So, Dog was somewhere else altogether
when a customer came into the shop to ask for a book!
Dog knew exactly which ones to recommend.
Dog loves books!
But most of all...
..he loves to share them.
Now, what a gorgeous little tale.
Dog really loves to read books and, what's more,
he loves sharing them too, just like I do.
Why don't you share a book with one of your friends tomorrow?
Now it's time for you to go to bed!
Snuggle up, drift off to sleep
and I'll see you soon for another Bedtime Story.
