Twinkle, have you spotted someone? I can't see who it is, can you?

0:00:460:00:51

-It's a carriage.

-It's Loopy's carriage.

0:00:540:00:58

-But what's that red line?

-I don't know.

0:00:580:01:01

-I think it's a red string.

-Where is Loopy?

0:01:010:01:07

Hmm, I wonder where he is, and what that red string is for.

0:01:070:01:11

Let's find out.

0:01:110:01:12

Loopy!

0:01:170:01:18

Can you see him?

0:01:180:01:19

No!

0:01:190:01:21

He might be playing hide and seek.

0:01:210:01:23

Oh, oh!

0:01:230:01:25

What's that noise?

0:01:250:01:27

Let's see if Loopy is hiding behind his carriage. Sssh!

0:01:270:01:31

-It's Tallulah, not Loopy.

-Tallulah is stuck!

0:01:350:01:38

-Oh!

-Driver Dan!

0:01:380:01:40

I'm so pleased to see you. I was looking for Loopy.

0:01:400:01:44

We were going to play football, but I didn't see the string.

0:01:440:01:49

It wound round and round my wheels and now...I'm stuck!

0:01:490:01:54

Oh, dear. Let me help. Right...

0:01:540:01:58

Ah, right, I think this bit goes over there...

0:01:580:02:01

-Ha-ha!

-That's not right.

0:02:010:02:03

That tickles!

0:02:030:02:04

Back again and...a-ha!

0:02:040:02:07

-There.

-Phew! Thanks, Driver Dan, and you, Twinkle.

0:02:070:02:12

This is a long piece of string, isn't it?

0:02:120:02:15

Tweet-tweet!

0:02:150:02:17

Yes, Twinkle says that it goes on and on,

0:02:170:02:19

weaving around the trees and off into the distance.

0:02:190:02:23

I wonder whose string it is.

0:02:230:02:25

Oh!

0:02:250:02:26

Watch out!

0:02:260:02:28

Hello! One! This... Two!

0:02:310:02:33

Is my... Three! New game... Four!

0:02:330:02:36

Called Loopy's Loop the loop... Five! Header challenge.

0:02:360:02:40

Six! See? Whoops!

0:02:400:02:41

Oh. Six isn't my best score. I've done 15.

0:02:410:02:44

That is impressive. But, Loopy, you should be more careful.

0:02:440:02:48

Tallulah got tangled up in your string.

0:02:480:02:51

What? No, the string's not mine.

0:02:510:02:53

Oh, sorry. If it's not yours, then whose is it?

0:02:530:02:56

Huh!

0:02:560:02:58

Oh, look! Why has the colour changed, Driver Dan?

0:03:030:03:07

I don't know. But they're two of my favourite colours.

0:03:070:03:11

Red like my handkerchief, and blue like my dungarees.

0:03:110:03:14

-Oh, look! It's moving. Someone's pulling the other end.

-Oh! Who?

0:03:140:03:20

Let's follow it and find out.

0:03:200:03:23

I've got a better idea. Let's follow the string on the story train.

0:03:230:03:28

-Yeah!

-Brilliant!

0:03:280:03:30

Tweet-tweet!

0:03:320:03:34

Will you help us follow the string?

0:03:340:03:37

-Yes, Driver Dan, we'll help!

-Then let's go!

0:03:370:03:40

All aboard the story train!

0:03:400:03:42

The string goes that way.

0:03:420:03:44

Through the tunnel, Driver Dan!

0:03:440:03:47

Look, it goes over there!

0:03:500:03:52

It's still going, Driver Dan.

0:03:520:03:55

Tweet-tweet!

0:03:550:03:57

What has Twinkle spotted?

0:03:590:04:01

-The string goes into Milly and Lilly's carriage.

-How exciting!

0:04:010:04:05

Let's see if they know something about the string.

0:04:050:04:08

-Milly! Lilly! Is this your string?

-Look!

0:04:100:04:13

The blue string is orange now.

0:04:130:04:15

-Orange is...

-One of your favourite colours.

0:04:150:04:18

I only have one favourite colour - green!

0:04:180:04:21

-Look!

-Oh, it's the end of the string.

-Hooray!

0:04:210:04:25

It's a present! Is it for me?

0:04:250:04:28

Who is it for?

0:04:290:04:31

Oh, it's for me!

0:04:310:04:33

-Oh.

-See what's inside, Driver Dan!

0:04:330:04:36

-A scarf! Oh, wow!

-Oh, that's lovely!

-Oh, lovely!

0:04:370:04:42

So it wasn't string you were following, it was wool!

0:04:420:04:45

Boo! Ta-da!

0:04:450:04:47

-Ha-ha!

-Milly and Lilly!

0:04:470:04:49

-There you are!

-Did you enjoy our game? It was good, wasn't it?

0:04:490:04:54

The game was to follow the wool

0:04:540:04:56

and find the scarf that we knitted specially for Driver Dan.

0:04:560:05:01

It's got all your favourite colours - red, blue and orange.

0:05:010:05:05

You can wear it on cold days to keep you warm driving the story train.

0:05:050:05:09

Oh, thanks so much, Milly and Lilly, it's perfect. Isn't it, Loopy?

0:05:090:05:15

Oh, yes, I suppose so.

0:05:150:05:17

Look in the bottom of the box, Loopy.

0:05:170:05:20

Ho-ho! Wow! Thanks, it's great! Look at me!

0:05:230:05:28

Your turn now, Tallulah.

0:05:280:05:30

Oh, it's a lovely trunk warmer. Thank you.

0:05:300:05:35

Thank you, both. What a great day you've given us.

0:05:350:05:38

And now I think we should do something in return.

0:05:380:05:41

Oh!

0:05:440:05:46

Wow, look at that.

0:05:500:05:52

There. Here's your wool,

0:05:520:05:54

-all ready for you to knit something else.

-Thank you!

0:05:540:05:58

Now, I'd like to try out my new scarf on the story train.

0:05:580:06:02

Who's coming to story corner?

0:06:020:06:04

-Let's go!

-Hooray!

0:06:040:06:06

We're all hooked up. Twinkle, are we ready to go?

0:06:060:06:10

Tweet-tweet!

0:06:100:06:13

Are you ready, too? Then let's go!

0:06:130:06:16

All aboard the story train!

0:06:160:06:18

-We're going to have a story.

-Maybe a story about presents.

0:06:180:06:24

-Or lots of colours.

-Yeah!

0:06:240:06:26

-Story time!

-Story corner!

-Story time!

0:06:340:06:38

Who's ready for a story?

0:06:380:06:40

-Yes, please.

-Oh, yes, please!

0:06:400:06:42

I was thinking maybe...

0:06:420:06:45

A-ha, I know just the book.

0:06:450:06:47

Is everyone settled down and ready to listen?

0:06:470:06:50

-Ready, Dan!

-Yes! Story time.

0:06:500:06:53

-All of you, sitting down comfy and ready to listen?

-Ready, Dan!

0:06:530:06:58

This story is called Follow That Cheese.

0:06:580:07:01

It was written by Emma Booth and the pictures are by David Plant.

0:07:010:07:06

Little Maggie Mouse's nose was the very best sniffer of whiffs.

0:07:060:07:11

Although teensy tiny, it was very, very mighty.

0:07:110:07:15

Maggie's nose made her the best detective in the whole of Mousetown.

0:07:150:07:20

Every day, after sniffing out and solving a mystery,

0:07:200:07:24

Maggie would eat some blue yum-yum cheese,

0:07:240:07:27

her favourite whiffiest cheesy cheese.

0:07:270:07:30

Except one day Maggie's blue yum-yum cheese had vanished.

0:07:300:07:34

All that was left were itty-bitty crumbs.

0:07:340:07:37

Where was Maggie's favourite whiffy cheesy cheese?

0:07:370:07:41

It was a mystery, and all mysteries need a detective.

0:07:410:07:44

Sniff, sniff, sniff. Maggie sniffed a whiff and followed her nose,

0:07:440:07:50

but it wasn't her blue yum-yum cheese,

0:07:500:07:52

it was feeding time at the farm.

0:07:520:07:55

Not cheesy enough.

0:07:550:07:57

Sniff, sniff, sniff.

0:07:570:07:59

Maggie sniffed another whiff and followed her nose.

0:07:590:08:04

But it wasn't her blue yum-yum cheese,

0:08:040:08:06

it was a muddy dog with a buried bone. Not cheesy enough.

0:08:060:08:11

Oh, she's very brave, isn't she?

0:08:110:08:14

She is!

0:08:140:08:15

Sniff, sniff, sniff. Maggie sniffed another whiff and followed her nose.

0:08:150:08:21

But it wasn't her blue yum-yum cheese, it was some smelly socks.

0:08:210:08:26

Not cheesy enough.

0:08:260:08:28

Maggie's whiskers twitched.

0:08:280:08:30

Twitch, twitch, twitch.

0:08:300:08:32

She sniffed. Sniff, sniff, sniff.

0:08:320:08:35

This whiff was far cheesier than farmyard food

0:08:350:08:38

or buried bones or smelly socks.

0:08:380:08:40

And that meant only one thing - blue yum-yum cheese!

0:08:400:08:46

Maggie followed her nose all the way home.

0:08:460:08:51

Maggie's daddy had a surprise.

0:08:510:08:53

For being the best sniffer of whiffs in Mousetown

0:08:530:08:57

he'd made Maggie her favourite dinner -

0:08:570:09:00

blue yum-yum macaroni cheese.

0:09:000:09:03

Another mystery sniffed and solved.

0:09:030:09:06

The end. That was great fun, wasn't it?

0:09:060:09:09

Phew-ee! Smelly socks, ha-ha!

0:09:090:09:12

Now it's your turn, which bit did you like best?

0:09:120:09:16

Come on, it's time to show me the story.

0:09:160:09:19

I'm looking around, just like Maggie Mouse.

0:09:200:09:23

Me too.

0:09:230:09:26

Sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff. I can sniff something cheesy.

0:09:260:09:32

Cluck, cluck, cluck! Let's all be chickens!

0:09:320:09:36

I'm a hungry chicken!

0:09:360:09:39

Cluck, cluck!

0:09:390:09:40

Let's dig, come on! Dig, dig, dig.

0:09:400:09:44

What a smell! They're really smelly! Pee-ew!

0:09:440:09:50

-Let's run this way!

-I can smell blue yum-yum cheese!

0:09:500:09:54

Quickly, this way!

0:09:540:09:56

-Yummy macaroni.

-Yeah!

0:09:560:09:59

Well done, everyone. That was a lot of fun.

0:10:000:10:03

Wasn't Maggie good at sniffing and solving mysteries?

0:10:030:10:07

Maggie followed those smells just like you all followed our wool!

0:10:070:10:12

-She was a great detective, like us!

-And she was brave.

0:10:120:10:16

That big digging dog would have made me jump!

0:10:160:10:19

-Like this, woof!

-Ah!

0:10:190:10:20

THEY GIGGLE

0:10:200:10:22

Glad you enjoyed the story, everyone, but now it's time to go.

0:10:220:10:26

All aboard the story train!

0:10:260:10:28

Tweet-tweet!

0:10:280:10:30

Bye, everyone. It's time to go,

0:10:300:10:32

but let's come back soon because we all love stories!

0:10:320:10:37

Bye, Driver Dan! Bye!

0:10:370:10:40

TOOT-TOOT!

0:10:450:10:47

I like stories about colours.

0:10:470:10:49

I like funny stories.

0:10:490:10:51

I like stories about smelly stuff.

0:10:510:10:53

I like stories about treasure.
