CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Nope, nothing in there.
What about this cupboard?
Oh, hello. I'm Mackenzie.
I'm looking for something exciting in the kitchen cupboards.
Not sure what, but I want to find something fantastic,
not just tins of food or paint.
Flinn, in tonight's bedtime story finds something amazing
in the school cupboard. Shall we find out?
The story is by Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto
and is called Captain Flinn And The Pirate Dinosaurs.
This is Flinn. He's wearing his pirate T-shirt
and colouring in a picture he's drawn of a dinosaur.
Flinn loves dinosaurs.
One day at school Flinn was colouring in a dinosaur picture
but he didn't have enough pens.
"Have a look in the art cupboard," said his teacher,
"There are more colours at the back."
So Flinn opened the door and stepped into the cupboard.
There were lots of paints and rolls of paper and pots of glue,
but Flinn couldn't see any pens.
As he searched he heard a noise, "Boo hoo, boo, hoo, hoo,"
and then, "sniffle, sniffle, sniffle."
Right at the back of the cupboard, under an old curtain
was something shaking and shuddering like a giant jelly.
Flinn crept closer.
When he lifted up the curtain he couldn't believe his eyes.
It was a real pirate captain!
"Hello," said Flinn, "what's the matter?"
The pirate, Captain Stubble, sniffed and looked at Flinn.
"My ship! They've stolen my ship!" he sobbed.
"One minute I was fast asleep, the next I was in the water
"watching my ship, The Acorn, sail away."
"Who's stolen it?" asked Flinn. "I don't know," said Captain Stubble,
"but as I watched I heard a roar and then a strange kind of song.
"It went, 'Yo-ho-ho, yo-ho-ho, somethingy something, go, go, go.'"
"Hmm, very strange," said Flinn. "How will you get your ship back?"
"I don't know," blustered Captain Stubble, "I can't do it on my own."
"I could help," said Flinn bravely. "And so will we!"
It was Flinn's friends, Pearl, Tom and Violet.
"We love adventures," they said.
At that moment the back of the cupboard fell away
and they tumbled out into a bright blue day,
where an old pirate ship was waiting.
"She's not what I'm used to," said Captain Stubble,
"but if this ship helps me find my beloved Acorn, she'll do.
"All aboard! Right, me hearties," said Captain Stubble,
"you'll need to look like pirates."
Flinn brandished the gleaming silver cutlass.
"Since you seem to be so brave, Flinn," he said,
"you can be captain of this ship. I'd rather be the cook."
So Captain Flinn took over and they sailed and sailed and sailed
in search of The Acorn.
The pirates were about to give up hope,
when Pirate Violet shouted from the Crow's Nest, "Ship ahoy!"
Stubble grabbed his telescope. "That's my precious Acorn!" he cried.
"Let's board," cried Captain Flinn.
"Reclaim your ship from those baddies. All hands on deck!"
They sailed faster and faster and got closer and closer.
When they were near, Captain Flinn put the telescope to his eye.
His face went white.
"They're not just ordinary pirates," he stammered.
And that is exactly what they were.
A pirate diplodocus, a pirate stegosaurus,
a pirate triceratops, and a pirate pterodactyl.
And right at the helm of the ship, steering with its claws on the wheel,
was a great big pirate Tyrannosaurus rex.
When he saw Captain Flinn he roared an almighty roar.
The dinosaurs sang out in their terrible voices...
# Yo-ho-ho Yo-ho-ho
# Pirate dinosaurs go, go, go! #
"Attack!" cried Captain Flinn and a great battle began.
Clash, clang, swish, splash!
It wasn't long before all the pirate dinosaurs jumped overboard in terror,
all except the Tyrannosaurus rex.
He roared an almighty roar.
Captain Flinn could see his huge sharp yellow teeth,
his tonsils wobbling ferociously at the back of his throat.
"I challenge you to a duel," shouted Captain Flinn.
"I'm gonna cut you up into pirate sausages,"
yelled the Tyrannosaurus rex, dribbling.
"Then I'm going to put you on the barbeque
"and eat you with much too much tomato ketchup," he added.
"Oh, no, you're not!" yelled Captain Flinn and charged.
Their cutlasses flashed and crashed and bashed and smashed
for at least two hours and 25 minutes
until finally the Tyrannosaurus rex was exhausted.
"Captain Flinn," he stammered, "I surrender.
"You're such a great pirate
"that you should be captain of the pirate dinosaurs.
"Spare me and I'll be the goodest goody in the world. Honest."
"Maybe one day I'll be your captain," replied Captain Flinn,
"but now we'd better get back to school. It's almost lunchtime."
So Captain Flinn took the wheel of The Acorn
and while pirate Pearl, pirate Tom and pirate Violet untied the crew,
Stubble made a delicious shark's fin stew.
They got to the harbour and waved goodbye to Captain Stubble
and the Tyrannosaurus rex.
Flinn saw that the door they had fallen through was still open.
They clambered in and were back among the paints,
rolls of paper and pots of glue.
Flinn grabbed some colouring pens
and they all crept back into the classroom.
"They all lived happily ever after," said Miss Pike,
closing the book she'd been reading.
"You've been in the cupboard a long time, Flinn.
"What were you doing?"
Flinn smiled secretly at his friends.
"Nothing," he said. "Nothing at all."
That story was called Captain Flinn And The Pirate Dinosaurs.
There must be something exciting in these cupboards. I'll keep searching.
While I do, it's time for you to go to bed.
I'll see you soon for another story. Night-night.
Ah! A pirate sword.
Let's see what else I can find.
