Hello, I'm Suranne. Are you snuggled up, cosy and warm?

0:00:070:00:12

Good, because it's very chilly in tonight's bedtime story. Brr!

0:00:120:00:17

In fact, it's snowing.

0:00:170:00:20

We're going to an ice palace to help Princess Ellie make snowflakes,

0:00:200:00:24

but it doesn't quite go according to plan.

0:00:240:00:27

It's called The Snowflake Mistake,

0:00:270:00:30

and it's written by Lou Treleaven with pictures by Maddie Frost.

0:00:300:00:34

High, very high, almost too high to see, an ice palace

0:00:360:00:41

floats like a ship on the sea, where clouds are collected

0:00:410:00:45

before they float by to make all the snowflakes that fall from the sky.

0:00:450:00:50

"Squish!" goes the roller to squash the clouds thin.

0:00:520:00:56

"Crunch!" goes the puncture to stamp the flakes in.

0:00:560:00:59

"I want them all perfect!" commands the Snow Queen.

0:00:590:01:02

"If any don't match, they're not fit to be seen!"

0:01:020:01:06

But young Princess Ellie would much rather play

0:01:060:01:09

and chase all her friends in the sky every day.

0:01:090:01:11

It's fun with the birds, choosing storm clouds to ride,

0:01:110:01:15

or whizzing along down the big rainbow slide.

0:01:150:01:19

One morning, the Queen has some business to do,

0:01:190:01:22

appointing an artist to paint the sky blue. She calls the Princess.

0:01:220:01:28

"You must mind the machine! Make sure the flakes match!

0:01:280:01:31

"It's your turn to be queen."

0:01:310:01:34

"Goodbye!" calls out Ellie then runs off outside

0:01:340:01:38

to search for the birds as they take turns to hide.

0:01:380:01:41

But all of a sudden, the sun slips away.

0:01:410:01:44

The palace is cloaked in a cloud of cold grey.

0:01:440:01:48

"Snow!" shouts out Ellie with all of her might. "We need to make snow!"

0:01:480:01:53

But there's no-one in sight. "What should I do?

0:01:530:01:56

"I'm supposed to be queen!

0:01:560:01:58

"I'll use double speed on the snowflake machine!"

0:01:580:02:01

ALARM SIREN WAILS

0:02:010:02:05

"Splat!" goes the roller to mash the cloud thin.

0:02:050:02:08

"Crash!" goes the puncture to bash the flakes in.

0:02:080:02:11

"Boing!" goes a spring.

0:02:110:02:12

There's a bang and a pop! And everything comes to a horrible stop.

0:02:120:02:17

Ellie climbs up the tower to view the sad scene.

0:02:190:02:22

Where white was expected, there are still fields of green.

0:02:220:02:27

No snowballs are flying, no snowmen stand tall, no sledges are sliding.

0:02:270:02:32

It's no fun at all!

0:02:320:02:33

Poor Ellie stares down at the far below land then jumps up with joy.

0:02:340:02:39

"I can make them by hand! I'll cut up some clouds.

0:02:390:02:42

"They'll be different, I know, but no-one will mind,

0:02:420:02:45

"just as long as there's snow!" "Snip, snip!" go her scissors.

0:02:450:02:49

"This job will take weeks!"

0:02:490:02:51

The birds flutter in and peck shapes with their beaks.

0:02:510:02:55

Soon, snowflakes pile up. Some are big, some are small.

0:02:550:02:59

"They're perfect!" says Ellie. "Let's scatter them all!"

0:02:590:03:04

The hills become white like a pile of iced buns.

0:03:040:03:08

The children catch flakes on their noses and tongues.

0:03:080:03:12

The rooftops are tucked into spotless white sheets,

0:03:120:03:15

and snowmen stand proudly on driveways and streets.

0:03:150:03:19

The Queen comes back home. Snowflakes rest in her hand.

0:03:200:03:25

"These all look so different! I don't understand!"

0:03:250:03:28

"I'm sorry," says Ellie. "I made a mistake.

0:03:280:03:31

"I broke the machine so we handmade each flake.

0:03:310:03:34

"They're all different sizes, but nobody minds.

0:03:340:03:37

"They love having snowflakes, whatever the kind."

0:03:370:03:41

The Snow Queen peers down at the scene far below.

0:03:410:03:46

"I've never seen anything quite like this snow!

0:03:460:03:49

"Each flake is unique in its own special way but,

0:03:490:03:52

"seen all at once, it's a dazzling display!" She hugs Ellie proudly.

0:03:520:04:00

"You've been very clever. I love the new flakes!

0:04:000:04:04

"It's the best snowfall ever!"

0:04:040:04:07

High, very high,

0:04:090:04:11

almost too high to see, an ice palace

0:04:110:04:14

floats like a ship on the sea, where a queen and her daughter make

0:04:140:04:18

snowflakes together to throw from the sky in the cold winter weather.

0:04:180:04:24

Wow! I'm so pleased that Princess Ellie managed to save the day.

0:04:270:04:31

Aren't you? Aren't you?

0:04:310:04:34

And remember, the next time it's snowy,

0:04:340:04:36

look up into the clouds and you might just see the Snow Queen

0:04:360:04:40

and Princess Ellie making snowflakes together!

0:04:400:04:43

I'll see you all soon for another bedtime story. Goodnight.

0:04:430:04:48

Suranne Jones reads tonight's bedtime story. Snow is in the air, so snuggle up as the hills turns white.
