Hey there, I'm Eddie, and I love animals.
Tonight's bedtime story is about a little girl
who wants a really big pet.
No, bigger than a cat.
No, much bigger than a tiger.
Yeah, that's more like it.
So the story is called If I Had A Dinosaur,
and it's written by Gabby Dawnay, with drawings by Alex Barrow.
I do like dogs. I've got a cat.
A fish is far too wet.
Because, you see, I really want a different sort of pet.
I thought about a hamster, I thought about a mouse.
But I want a pet much bigger, more the size of...
..well, a house.
I really want a giant pet, enormous, big and strong,
with a body broad and solid and a tail that's super-long.
If I had a dinosaur, I'd teach him lots of tricks,
like how to roll and how to sit and fetch and carry sticks.
If I had a dinosaur, I'd walk him in the park.
I wonder if my dinosaur would roar,
or would he bark?
If I had a dinosaur, he'd carry me to school,
and all my friends would shout, "Oh, wow! Your dinosaur is cool!"
My dinosaur would learn to count and say the alphabet,
and all the teachers would declare, "Why, what a clever pet!"
Dinosaurs need water. I think they like to swim.
I'd have to dig a massive pond and fill it to the brim.
If I had a dinosaur, I'd feed him lots of greens,
like cabbages and broccoli to keep him full of beans.
Dinosaurs would make smashing pets,
as dinosaurs can do much better stuff than dogs or cats.
And just watch out for the...
If I had a dinosaur, I'd get a dino flap,
so he could come inside my house and take a little nap.
Our sofa is enormous. It's big enough for four.
Just perfect for a sleepy sort of friendly dinosaur.
I wish I had a dinosaur to cuddle up at night,
to read a bedtime story with and give my dad a fright.
Yes, dinosaurs make awesome pets.
I'm sure you will agree that of all the pets,
they are the best.
Just get one and you'll see.
Wow, can you imagine having a dinosaur as a pet?
Sharing your bed.
I think it might hog the pillow, though.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed that story.
I think that Greg liked it. He's now dreaming dinosaur dreams.
Anyway, it's your bedtime too, so I hope you have lovely dreams as well
and I will see you soon for another story. Night-night!
