Hey there.

0:00:080:00:09

I'm Eddie, and I was just saying

to my friends here that

0:00:090:00:12

I love dressing up. Don't you?

0:00:120:00:14

Cos Mr Robot loves dressing

up as a dinosaur,

0:00:140:00:17

and Dinosaur loves dressing

up as a robot,

0:00:170:00:19

whereas I am trying to decide

between a bird and a firefighter.

0:00:190:00:24

Anyway,

the dad in tonight's bedtime story -

0:00:240:00:27

he loves all sorts of dressing up.

It's called The Dressing-up Dad.

0:00:270:00:31

It's written by Maudie Smith

and the pictures are by Paul Howard.

0:00:310:00:36

Danny loved dressing up.

So did Danny's dad.

0:00:370:00:42

Now, Danny and his dad dressed

up at home and when they went out.

0:00:450:00:50

They dressed up anywhere,

at any time, whatever the weather.

0:00:500:00:55

And there was nothing they enjoyed

more than a dressing-up party.

0:00:550:01:01

For his birthday,

Danny had a dinosaur party.

0:01:010:01:04

The next year, he had a robot party.

0:01:040:01:07

And the year after that,

it was pirates.

0:01:070:01:09

Dad was the most piratey

pirate of them all!

0:01:090:01:14

There was no-one quite like Danny's

dad but, sometimes, Danny wondered.

0:01:140:01:20

He wondered what it would be like

to have an ordinary,

0:01:200:01:23

everyday dad, like other people had.

0:01:230:01:26

"Your birthday's coming up!"

said Danny's dad.

0:01:270:01:30

"I'm really looking forward to the

bugs party! What shall I come as?

0:01:300:01:35

"A ladybird? A dragonfly?

Or a great, big, hairy spider?"

0:01:350:01:42

Danny ran upstairs.

0:01:440:01:46

"I don't want you to come to

my party as a bug!" he said.

0:01:460:01:49

"Not even as a beetle?" said Dad.

"Not even as an ant!

0:01:490:01:54

"Can't you come as a dad instead?

An ordinary, everyday one? Please?"

0:01:540:02:00

"Oh," said Dad.

0:02:010:02:03

"I could try being an ordinary,

everyday dad,

0:02:050:02:08

"although I'm not sure

I have the right outfit."

0:02:080:02:11

But at the very

back of the wardrobe,

0:02:110:02:13

Danny found the perfect thing.

0:02:130:02:16

Danny's dad looked great dressed

up as an ordinary, everyday dad.

0:02:160:02:20

He turned out to be really

good at being an ordinary,

0:02:200:02:23

everyday dad, too.

0:02:230:02:25

He took care of the guests,

he organised the party games,

0:02:250:02:28

and he made sure everyone got

a slice of birthday cake.

0:02:280:02:31

He did everything an ordinary,

everyday dad ought to do.

0:02:310:02:36

But something wasn't right. "We want

to be chased!" said Danny's friends.

0:02:360:02:42

"We want a giant caterpillar!"

0:02:420:02:45

Dad looked sad. "Sorry," he said.

"I've got party bags to organise."

0:02:450:02:53

But Danny shouted, "Wait!

"Put it on, Dad! Go ahead!"

0:02:530:02:59

"I'd love to," said Dad.

"But are you sure you want me to?"

0:02:590:03:03

"Quite sure!" said Danny.

0:03:030:03:05

It was his party,

but he wanted Dad to have fun, too.

0:03:050:03:10

So Dad dressed up as

a giant caterpillar,

0:03:100:03:16

and it was brilliant!

0:03:160:03:18

No-one wanted to go home.

0:03:190:03:22

"You love dressing up,

don't you, Dad?" said Danny.

0:03:220:03:25

"I do!" said Dad.

"I love dressing up with you!"

0:03:250:03:29

"Well, from now on," said Danny,

0:03:290:03:31

"we can dress up

together whenever you like!"

0:03:310:03:34

Ordinary, everyday dads were fine,

0:03:340:03:37

but Danny knew his dressing-up dad

was the best dad in the world.

0:03:370:03:42

Danny and his dad had such fun

dressing up.

0:03:440:03:46

I hope you enjoyed that story.

It was called The Dressing-up Dad.

0:03:460:03:51

Now it is time for you to dress up

in your pyjamas, ready for bed,

0:03:510:03:56

and I will see you

soon for another story.

0:03:560:03:59

Night-night.

0:03:590:04:00

Eddie Redmayne tells us how important it is to be yourself in this heartwarming story about Danny, whose dad feels happiest when he plays dressing-up.
