It's Driver Dan's Story Train!
-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?
THUDDING OF FEET Listen!
I can hear thumpy, bouncy running.
-And something tinkly!
BOTH: It's Loopy and Precious!
It is! Let's go and say hello.
Hello, Precious! What's Loopy up to?
Hello, Driver Dan. I don't know what he's...oh!
Driver Dan! Thank goodness you're here!
-Did you bring them?
-Uh... Hello, Loopy. I'm over here!
Oh, hello. There you are! Did you bring them, Driver Dan?
-Bring what, Loopy?
-My glasses. I can't find them anywhere.
I can't see very well.
-No, I haven't brought them. I don't know where they are either.
I don't think I'm ever going to find them again.
They might be lost forever!
Don't worry, Loopy. I'm really good at finding things.
We just need to find a trail or a clue to help us.
How do we do that?
I could find them ...like a detective!
I can be Detective Precious...
and I will solve the mystery of Loopy's lost glasses!
First, we need to look around very carefully for clues.
Where do you think we should look first for a clue?
Uh...there! In the toy box.
How about Loopy's toy box, Precious?
Yes. Everyone, follow me!
No, not that. No.
Whoa! I'd forgotten about that. Ha-ha!
Detective Precious reports -
no glasses and no clues found in the toy box.
Are you sure?
-I don't think these are my glasses, are they?
Detective Precious will solve the mystery of Loopy's lost glasses.
Em...let's get on the story train to look for a clue!
Good idea, Precious.
I'm going to keep my detective eyes open for a clue.
Just a minute! My detective tail is tinging!
Why is there a spade here?
-Is this yours, Loopy?
-No. I borrowed it from Sweetie's garden.
She said I could play with it but I lost my glasses and I couldn't!
Detective Precious has solved the mystery of Loopy's lost glasses!
Loopy must have left his glasses in Sweetie's garden.
Come on. Let's go!
Let's follow this clue to Sweetie's garden!
Are you ready too? Then let's go!
All aboard the story train!
There she is! It's Sweetie.
We've found her.
Great! Let's go and see if Detective Precious
has solved the mystery of Loopy's lost glasses.
Ah, hello, everyone.
I'm collecting carrots but I can't pull this big one out without my...
Oh, my spade!
Thank you, Driver Dan. Thanks, Precious.
Today, I'm Detective Precious
and I'm going to solve the mystery of Loopy's lost glasses.
They should be right here, in your garden.
Oh, I'm sorry, Loopy.
I thought the spade was a clue.
But you have found your bucket instead, Loopy.
Yes, when you borrowed my spade you left your bucket here by mistake.
Loopy, you used a bucket and then you needed a spade.
Hmm. My detective tail is tinging again!
Hmm. Carrots and sand...
-This is the best clue yet!
Loopy, were you playing in my sandpit?
Everyone, follow me!
We are now about to solve the mystery of Loopy's lost glasses.
Driver Dan, could you dig, please?
Certainly, Detective Precious!
That's it, nice and gently.
Did you make that sand castle with the flag, Loopy?
Yes! I used the bucket to make it,
then I wanted a spade to dig out the moat.
But I don't remember having a flag.
Oh! Precious, you've found them!
Hooray for Detective Precious!
Yes, well done, Detective!
Here you go.
Hooray! Story Corner, here we come!
He's right. It's time for Story Corner!
We're all hooked up. Twinkle, are we ready to go?
Are you ready, too?
Then let's go!
All aboard the story train!
We're going to have a story!
Maybe it'll be about a detective.
-I think it'll be about finding things.
Who's ready for a story?
-I wonder if the story will be about finding things.
I was thinking maybe... Aha!
I know just the book! Is everyone settled down and ready to listen?
-Yes, we are!
-And all of you? Sitting down comfy and ready to listen?
This story is called Desert Dash. It was written by Vivian French
and the pictures are by Martyn Warren.
Big Camel was always boasting
"I'm the biggest. I'm the fastest. I'm the best."
"Hmm," said Tortoise,
"It's time someone taught Big Camel a lesson."
Tortoise went over to Little Camel and whispered in her ear.
Little Camel nodded. "I'll do it," she said.
That night, Tortoise walked out into the desert.
He tucked in his head and tucked in his toes
and he looked just like a big brown stone.
Oooh. Look at all that sand!
The next day, Little Camel said,
"Guess what I can do? I can run to that big brown stone and come back
"before all the children have counted to 50."
And off Little Camel ran, whilst everyone counted.
Back she came, in a flurry of sand.
"49!" Shouted all the children.
"Well done, Little Camel!"
Out in the desert, Tortoise walked a little further...
And then, a little further...
And then, a little further still.
And then he tucked in his head and he tucked in his toes,
So he looked just like a big brown stone.
Big Camel didn't see Tortoise moving.
He was too busy boasting to Little Camel.
"Call that fast? I'll be back before everyone has counted to 20!"
And off he ran, whilst all the children counted.
Back came Big Camel, puffing and panting.
"63!" Shouted all the children.
"Little Camel is the winner!"
Out in the desert, Tortoise smiled.
"I don't think Big Camel will boast any more." He said.
And he was quite right.
Little Camel and Tortoise told Big Camel
that they had cheated to teach him a lesson about always boasting.
Big Camel was very sorry and promised to try not to boast again.
They knew he would be a much better friend,
so they promised never to cheat again.
And they all played happily together.
What a great story!
Little Camel helped Big Camel to learn not to boast, didn't she?
Yes! And Tortoise helped too. By hiding in the desert.
I really liked that story.
Thanks, Driver Dan.
Now it's your turn.
Which bit did you like best?
Come on, it's time to show me the story.
We're in the desert.
It's very hot here.
I'm really hot!
Look, everyone is here!
-Hello, Big Camel!
Whoosh! Look at me go!
We're being racing camels.
I'm crawling like a tortoise.
I'm going really slowly.
Now I'm pretending to be a stone.
We're skipping with Big Camel and Little Camel.
Skip, skip, skip!
Well done! That was really good.
I love stories with camels and the pictures of the desert!
Follow me, everyone!
Glad you enjoyed the story, everyone. But now it's time to go!
All aboard the story train!
Bye, everyone. It's time to go.
But let's come back soon, because we all love stories!
Bye, Driver Dan! Bye!
I like stories about rabbits.
I like stories about great big sand castles.
I like stories with happy endings!
