-Hello, Driver Dan!
# Which of our friends are we going to see?
# Which of our friends do you think it will be?
# Climb aboard and travel with me
# All aboard the Story Train!
# All aboard the Story Train! #
-Twinkle, have you spotted someone?
I can't see who it is. Can you?
BOY LAUGHS It's someone's bottom!
-Ha! A bottom?!
-I know, I know! It's Precious!
Is she looking for something?
You were right, it is Precious! But there's something else.
-Can you guess?
-That's Milly and Lilly's carriage!
Oh, yeah! Is Precious hiding from them?
-And did you hear that?
-I heard a baa!
-It must be the Counting Sheep!
Precious, Milly and Lilly, AND the Counting Sheep.
-That is a lot of carriages!
-You're right, that's a full train.
-I wonder what they're all doing.
-Precious! Thanks for the warning, Counting Sheep!
-Hello, Precious. What's going on?
-Hello, Driver Dan. Can you see
what Milly and Lilly are doing? They're being very secretive today.
-They told me not to look.
-It sounds like they want it to be a secret.
Why don't you wait until they're ready to tell you?
-Then it'll be a nice surprise.
-Huh! That's what the Counting Sheep said.
But I can't wait. I really want to know now.
-Oh, please let me through!
-Precious! Stop trying to look!
-I only want to see what you're doing.
-You can't, it's a surprise.
-I won't give up. I'll find out what it is.
-You can't catch me!
Hello, Milly and Lilly. You look very busy.
-Is this to do with the surprise?
Hiya, Driver Dan! Yes, we're going to paint a big picture
of all her friends, as a surprise for Precious.
To thank her for being such a good friend.
But it's difficult to make it a surprise when she's so...
-So, that's the surprise.
Oh! What are you two doing over there?!
MILLY AND LILLY: It's a surprise!
But I don't like surprises! You have to wait too long for them!
-Stop chasing me!
Would you help to keep Precious' surprise a surprise?
-What should we do?
-I want to help.
Great! OK, when you see Precious coming, let me know.
I hope those Counting Sheep can keep Precious away!
-SHE GIGGLES, HER TAIL TINKLES
-What's that? Did you hear something too?
-Watch out, it's Precious!
-She's on her way!
-Counting Sheep! We need you!
-All clear. Thanks for your help.
-What do you think, Driver Dan?
-We just need to paint Precious, now.
Let me through! I have to find out what the surprise is.
-I just can't wait!
Ha-ha! Here I come!
-MILLY AND LILLY GASP
MILLY AND LILLY: Oh, no! Precious!
Well, I don't see what's so funny. What's that?
Ha-ha! We were making a surprise picture for you.
Of you with all your friends.
To thank you for being such a good friend!
Ha-ha! Even if you are sometimes a little bit nosy!
-But now it looks like you've made a picture of your very own.
-Well done, Precious.
I did? Wow! That's the best surprise ever!
I love my picture. Thank you, Milly and Lilly.
I'm, er, sorry for being so nosy, but I just love finding things out!
-Yes, we know, Precious.
Well, the only other surprise today
is what story we'll have at Story Corner.
ALL: Yay! It's Story Time!
We're all hooked up. Three carriages and one stop today.
Twinkle, are we ready to go?
-Are you ready, too? Then, let's go!
ALL: All aboard the Story Train!
-We're going to have a story!
-I think it'll be about painting.
-I like sheepy stories.
-Who's ready for a story, then?
ALL: We are!
I was thinking, maybe... A-ha! I know just the book!
Is everyone settled down and ready to listen?
-I know I am!
And you, sitting down, comfy and ready to listen?
ALL: Ready, Dan!
This story is called Sniff, Sniff. It was written by Rachel Dawson,
and the pictures are by Caroline Mockford.
Jessie was a very nosy jackal.
She used her nose to sniff all the smells in the air.
Sniff, sniff, sniff!
-Yes, just like that!
But one day, no matter how hard Jessie sniffed,
she couldn't smell anything.
She sniffed and sniffed and sniffed, and...
Her nose was full of sniffles and snuffles, and just wasn't working,
So, she decided to find a new one.
Jessie saw something sticking out of the water.
What could it be? Who knows?
Snap! Snap! Snap! A crocodile with a green nose!
Oh, no! That nose is too snappy for Jessie!
Jessie saw something wrapped round a branch.
Who could it be? Who knows?
Nudge! Nudge! Nudge! It's an elephant with a long trunk!
Oh, no! That nose is too long for Jessie!
Jessie could hear a tap, tap, tapping.
What could it be? Who knows?
Tap! Tap! Tap! It's a woodpecker saying hello!
Oh, no! That nose is too pointy for Jessie.
Jessie looked and looked, and could not find a new nose anywhere.
What can she do? Who knows?
Sad Jessie sat and sniffled, and snuffled, and sniffed,
Jessie's nose was better!
She could sniff the smell in the air.
What could it be? Who knows?
-Did you like the story?
Jessie was nosy, just like me.
She wanted a new nose and then she was even more nosy.
Just like Precious.
And now it's your turn. Which bit did you like best?
It's time to show me the story.
We're sniffing around, just like Jessie the Jackal. Sniff, sniff.
Sniff, sniff, sniff. What's that smell?
I'm a snappy crocodile.
Look out! I can see the crocodile.
That woodpecker has a long nose. Peck, peck, let's peck this tree.
I can be a woodpecker. Peck, peck.
I'm being an elephant with a really long trunk.
I'm down at the waterhole.
We can sniff you, sniff, sniff!
Look, I've got a really long nose.
-We're all being elephants now.
-ALL: Wave your elephant trunks.
Thanks, everyone, that was great.
What are you looking for this time, Precious?
Are you looking for a new nose like Jessie was? Sniff, sniff.
Yes. See, I've got a twinkle nose.
Twinkle and I did it to surprise you.
It was a very good surprise.
Glad you enjoyed the story, everyone, and all the noses.
Now it's time to go. All aboard!
ALL: All aboard the Story Train. All aboard!
Bye, everyone. It's time to go
but let's come back soon because we all love stories.
-Bye, Driver Dan.
I like stories about football.
My favourite stories are about giants.
I have two stories at bedtime.
I like stories about tractors.
