CBeebies Bedtime Story.

0:00:020:00:06

What's that?

0:00:060:00:08

Of course you can have a hug.

0:00:080:00:10

Hello. I'm Mark.

0:00:100:00:12

And I'll be reading you a bedtime story tonight all about hugs.

0:00:120:00:16

I love hugs, do you?

0:00:160:00:18

Of course you do.

0:00:180:00:20

So why don't you go and get your favourite teddy or toy

0:00:200:00:24

and give them a cuddle while we find out all about Douglas

0:00:240:00:27

and his search for a hug.

0:00:270:00:30

The story is written and illustrated by David Melling.

0:00:300:00:35

One spring morning, a big ya-a-a-awn

0:00:350:00:41

came from the back of a deep, dark cave.

0:00:410:00:44

It was a young brown bear, and his name was Douglas.

0:00:440:00:48

"I need a hug," said Douglas.

0:00:480:00:53

So he wriggled out of his pyjamas, brushed his hair,

0:00:530:00:57

put on a scarf, and went to look for one.

0:00:570:01:00

"My best hugs are big," thought Douglas.

0:01:000:01:05

So he went up to the biggest thing he could find,

0:01:050:01:08

wrapped his arms all the way around and gave it a squeeze.

0:01:080:01:13

It didn't feel quite right.

0:01:130:01:15

"Oh," grunted Douglas, "it's a bit too heavy."

0:01:150:01:21

THUD!

0:01:210:01:24

"My best hugs are tall," thought Douglas.

0:01:240:01:28

So he went up to the tallest thing he could find,

0:01:280:01:31

he hugged the bottom, he hugged around the middle,

0:01:310:01:35

and he hugged as high as he could reach.

0:01:350:01:38

But it was all wrong, and it had splinters!

0:01:380:01:42

"My best hugs are comfy," thought Douglas,

0:01:440:01:50

and he trotted towards a cosy-looking bush.

0:01:500:01:53

He cuddled the bush, but felt something very odd.

0:01:530:01:57

The leaves quivered and trembled and ran away!

0:01:570:02:02

"Give us a hug!" Cried Douglas.

0:02:020:02:06

"No," baaed the sheep. "We're too busy."

0:02:060:02:11

He scooped up armfuls anyway and try to cuddle them gently,

0:02:110:02:15

but they kicked and squirmed and didn't like it at all.

0:02:150:02:19

Poor Douglas.

0:02:190:02:21

"Why can't I find a hug?" he said.

0:02:210:02:25

"If I want a hug," said a wise owl, "I sit in my tree and..."

0:02:250:02:32

"Let me try!" whooped Douglas. And he scrambled up next to the owl.

0:02:320:02:37

But he soon found himself in a clumsy muddle.

0:02:370:02:40

"Too-woo, too-wit," said the owl crossly.

0:02:400:02:45

"I only wanted a hug," sniffed Douglas.

0:02:450:02:49

"Perhaps there's one down here."

0:02:490:02:52

He felt something long-eared and rabbity and gave it a tug.

0:02:520:02:59

Douglas could tell the rabbit didn't want a hug.

0:02:590:03:02

He sniffed again, and without thinking,

0:03:020:03:06

wiped his nose on the fluffy end.

0:03:060:03:08

"Excuse me," shouted the rabbit.

0:03:080:03:12

"Put me down!"

0:03:120:03:14

"But I need a hug," said Douglas, "and I can't find one anywhere"

0:03:140:03:20

"Oh, I see," said the rabbit, kindly.

0:03:200:03:24

"Come with me."

0:03:240:03:27

She took Douglas by the paw and led him round and about.

0:03:270:03:31

At last, they came to a deep, dark cave

0:03:310:03:35

where a sleepy someone was just waking up.

0:03:350:03:39

HE YAWNS

0:03:390:03:45

Douglas peeped inside.

0:03:470:03:49

He had the funniest feeling that he knew that someone very well.

0:03:490:03:54

"Hug?" Asked Douglas as he ran as fast as he could towards...

0:03:540:03:59

..his mum!

0:03:590:04:02

"Aahh, come to think of it,

0:04:020:04:05

"my best hugs are from someone I love," said Douglas.

0:04:050:04:10

And he snuggled into the biggest, warmest arms he knew.

0:04:100:04:14

I'm so glad that Douglas got his hug.

0:04:160:04:19

Are you still hugging your teddy?

0:04:190:04:22

Me too. My teddy's giving me the best cuddle.

0:04:220:04:26

Oh, thanks, teddy.

0:04:260:04:28

And thank you for joining me for tonight's bedtime story.

0:04:280:04:32

I'll be back soon to read you another one. Sweet dreams. Na-night.

0:04:320:04:37

CBeebies is live for Hospital Heroes and we have been asking children to send a hug to someone they know in hospital, which is why we have chosen new reader Mark Bonnar with the book Hugless Douglas.
