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?
It's Hip and Hop and Sweetie's carriage.
Look, they're over there! They're having a picnic.
I love picnics. ALL: Yeah, me too.
Well spotted. Sweetie said she was going on a picnic with Hip and Hop.
I said we would pick them up,
but first, I have to go and get a new book for the library carriage.
See you in a bit. Bye!
Mm! I love carrot cake. Your cake is really yummy, Sweetie.
These carrots from your garden are the crunchiest, munchiest ever.
Thank you, Hop. Picnics are so much fun, aren't they?
All: We love picnics! Yummy, scrummy picnics.
ALL: Yes, we love picnics. Lots and lots to eat. Yeah!
BLEEPING Listen, can you hear that?
-What did you hear, Hip?
-I'm not sure. A bleepy-bloopy noise.
We love picnics!
I do love picnics, but will they want me to join in?
-I'm really full.
-Great picnic, Sweetie.
Let's clear up before Driver Dan gets here.
Yeah, I'll get the plates, Hop. Would you take the cups, please?
I'll save some cake for Driver Dan.
I'm sure they won't mind if I have a little picnic, too.
What do I need? Hmm.
Picnics need plates and cups.
Yes, plates and cups. Bippity bip!
Let's go back and get the rest. Come on, Hop.
Plates and cups!
Perfect for picnics. Bip-bip!
Listen, Hop. It's that sound again.
I did hear it, honestly.
Picnics. One, two, three plates.
Now, a picnic needs food.
Yummy, scrummy food.
Crunchy, munchy carrot. Bip-bip brilliant.
Hey, Hip. Where did the plates and cups go?
You put them away, not me.
Maybe Sweetie moved them. Never mind. Let's go and get the blanket.
Oh! Crunchy, munchy carrots! Bip-bip brilliant!
Missing plates and cups? Oh yeah, Hop, good trick.
-Hold on, it wasn't me!
Oh, I've got the carrots but we really need those plates and cups.
This time no more disappearing plate tricks, Hop.
-It wasn't me, Hip, honestly. Really!
-Is everything cleared away?
Maybe if Hop would stop playing funny tricks with the plates.
-I think it was you.
-You two silly rabbits.
Oh, look! It's the Story Train.
Hello, Sweetie. Hi, Hip and Hop. How was the picnic?
Hello, Driver Dan. Super yummy.
-Sweetie made a scrummy carrot cake.
-I saved a piece for you.
Thank you. I'll have it later. Are we cleared up and ready to go?
Nearly, Driver Dan. Just got to get the blanket.
And we sang a special song, like this.
ALL: We love picnics.
ALL: Yummy, scrummy picnics.
I love picnics. Bippity-bip. Oh, hello.
-Hello to you, too.
-Look! The plates!
And the bowls, and everything else.
See, Hip? It wasn't me.
No, it was me. I wanted to have a picnic too.
Do you mind?
I'm sure it's fine. I'm Driver Dan.
This is Sweetie and Twinkle and these two are Hip and Hop.
-Lovely to meet you.
-My name is Bippity.
It's very nice to meet you, Bippity.
Yeah. Hey, Bippity, do you like stories?
-Yes! I love stories.
Driver Dan, could Bippity come with us to Story Corner?
I think that's a great idea.
-What do you think, Bippity?
Let's find your carriage and go to Story Corner.
ALL: Yey! Story Corner!
We picked up Bippity and his carriage,
and if you are ready too, let's go.
ALL: All aboard the Story Train! It's time for a story.
Bippity can come too. He'll love Story Corner.
-Is everyone ready for a story?
-Are you ready, Bippity?
Oh, yes. I would love to hear a story too, Driver Dan.
Aha! I know just the book.
A new book for a new friend.
Is everybody settled down and ready to listen?
And all of you sitting down comfy and ready to listen?
This story is called the Big Blue Bumpalump.
Art Taylor wrote it and Lawrie Stansfield did the pictures.
Prince Huffanpuff was a happy prince.
He ruled over a happy kingdom.
But recently, Prince Huffanpuff had become worried,
for he had heard that a big blue bumpalump
had moved into a cave close to his castle.
Oh, a bumpalump! What is a bumpalump?
We'll see. Now, no-one had actually seen the bumpalump,
but the villagers had heard it was as high as a very tall tree
and had lots of shaggy, blue fur.
It was said it had large, stompy feet and huge hands with claws
and two or maybe three enormous horns and lots of very,
very big yellow teeth.
And stories were told that when it walked,
the ground shook with a huge bumpalump sound.
And when it roared, the windows would rattle and everyone
said that the bumpalump was bumpy, lumpy and downright grumpy.
-Bumpy and lumpy!
Prince Huffanpuff had decided the bumpalump
was the most fearsome creature in the kingdom when a messenger ran in.
"He's coming!" The messenger cried.
The big blue bumpalump is coming. "Help," cried the Prince.
But his knights all clattered away as fast as they could.
Prince Huffanpuff hid under his blankets.
"Shut the gates," he squealed. "Call the guards! Everyone hide."
Down on the courtyard, the only person left was a small girl
called Jasmine, who was busy sweeping up the hay.
There was a loud knocking at the castle gates.
Bump, bump, bump.
Jasmine had heard that the big blue bumpalump was bumpy and lumpy
and she had been warned that he was even quite grumpy.
But she had never actually seen a bumpalump before so,
very slowly, she opened the gate.
"Hi, there," said the bumpalump,
"I've just moved into the cave next door
"and I thought I'd meet the neighbours."
Jasmine smiled. "What lovely flowers. Do come in." She said.
The guards, knights and villagers peeped out from their hiding places.
Then Prince Huffanpuff strode into the courtyard.
Jasmine, you are the bravest person in the whole castle.
"From now on, you will no longer sweep the hay.
"You will be in charge of all my knights and guards."
And Prince Huffanpuff, Jasmine and the big blue bumpalump
sat down to a fantastic feast,
followed by a brilliant bumpy, lumpy ride around the castle.
-The end. Wasn't that a good story?
-Yes. Lumpy and bumpy.
And now it's your turn.
It's time to show me the story.
ALL: Clip, clop, clip, clop.
-I'm riding my horse like the Prince.
-So am I.
-I'm being a big blue bumpalump.
Stomp, stomp, stomp!
Now I'm roaring like the bumpalump.
ALL: Quick! Run away!
-He's not scary at all.
-We are at the feast now.
-There is lots of lovely food.
Let's all ride around with the bumpalump.
That looked great fun. Thanks, everyone.
You were great at showing me the story.
Prince Huffanpuff and Jasmine
enjoyed playing with their new friend.
I liked hearing the story with my new friends.
What a great day we have had.
The delicious picnic, a new book and a new friend.
It's time to go now.
Bippity can come and have a story whenever he likes.
Oh yes, please. Stories are great. And maybe another picnic?
All right, everyone. Time to go. All aboard!
ALL: All aboard the Story Train.
Bye, everyone. It's time to go.
Let's come back soon, because we all love stories.
Bye, Driver Dan.
I love stories about robots.
I like stories about naughty rabbits.
And crunchy carrots! Crunch, crunch.
