0:00:160:00:19

All aboard the story train!

0:00:420:00:45

I think Twinkle has spotted someone up ahead. Can you guess who?

0:00:470:00:52

-Look, some ears.

-And a hat.

0:00:520:00:56

I think it's Hip in a hat.

0:00:560:00:58

And where there's a Hip...

0:00:580:01:00

There's always a Hop.

0:01:000:01:02

Hmm, Hip in a hat. What is going on? Let's go and find out.

0:01:020:01:07

Quite a crowd.

0:01:090:01:11

Hello, everyone.

0:01:110:01:14

Hello, Driver Dan. Hurry up - Hip's magic show is about to start.

0:01:140:01:18

Ooh, a magic show, Hip?

0:01:180:01:20

I am not Hip, I am The Great Hipini!

0:01:200:01:24

Yes, that is a funny name.

0:01:240:01:27

It's my special magician's name.

0:01:270:01:30

Are you and Hop doing magic tricks?

0:01:300:01:32

I want to, Driver Dan, but Hip won't let me.

0:01:320:01:36

Only The Great Hipini can do magic

0:01:360:01:39

and my marvellous magic show is about to begin.

0:01:390:01:42

For my first trick, what's that behind your ear, Precious?

0:01:450:01:49

Oh, my ear?

0:01:490:01:51

That was clever, Great Hipini.

0:01:530:01:56

Thank you.

0:01:560:01:57

Now, I will make this carrot disappear.

0:01:570:02:01

I say the magic words -

0:02:010:02:03

Hippo Potamo Carroto Disappearo!

0:02:030:02:09

And now it will reappear.

0:02:090:02:11

Hippo Potamo Carroto Reappearo!

0:02:110:02:15

Brilliant!

0:02:150:02:17

I can make a carrot disappear, too.

0:02:170:02:20

Hop, you don't know how to.

0:02:200:02:23

LAUGHTER

0:02:230:02:25

Good trick, Hop.

0:02:250:02:27

-But it's not a proper magic trick.

-I know.

0:02:270:02:30

-Can you show me how to do a proper trick, please?

-No, Hop!

0:02:300:02:35

For my next trick, I will make something even bigger disappear.

0:02:350:02:40

But I will need a helper.

0:02:400:02:42

Me! Me! Pick me, please!

0:02:420:02:45

How about it, Great Hipini? Hop is really keen to join in.

0:02:470:02:51

-Um, all right, then.

-Hoorah!

0:02:510:02:55

As you can see, the Magic Cabinet is completely empty.

0:02:550:03:00

Step into the Magic Cabinet, please, Hop.

0:03:000:03:04

I say the magic words -

0:03:040:03:07

Hippo Potamo Hoppo Disappearo! Ta-da!

0:03:070:03:11

Now The Great Hipini will make her reappear.

0:03:150:03:18

Hippo Potamo Hoppo Reappearo!

0:03:180:03:22

-That was amazing!

-Again, again!

0:03:230:03:27

-Can I make you disappear this time, Hip?

-No, Hop!

0:03:270:03:31

Sorry.

0:03:310:03:32

Now, step into the Magic Cabinet again, please.

0:03:320:03:37

Hippo Potamo Hoppo Disappearo!

0:03:370:03:40

Ta-da!

0:03:450:03:47

Hippo Potamo Hoppo Reappearo!

0:03:490:03:52

Where's Hop?

0:03:540:03:55

Whoops, I'll try again.

0:03:550:03:58

Hippo Potamo Hoppo Reappearo!

0:03:580:04:02

One moment, please. Are you in here? Hop!

0:04:020:04:07

-Great Hipini, where have you magicked Hop to?

-I don't know.

0:04:100:04:15

Hey, Counting Sheep, shush! Can you hide me, please?

0:04:150:04:20

I want to do a trick now.

0:04:200:04:23

My trick went wrong, Driver Dan. Please, will you help me find Hop?

0:04:230:04:27

Of course we will. Come on, let's find Hop.

0:04:270:04:31

Shush.

0:04:330:04:36

Counting Sheep, have you seen Hop?

0:04:360:04:39

Baa, baa. Baa, baa.

0:04:390:04:41

Hmm, are you sure you don't know where Hop is?

0:04:410:04:45

Baa, baa.

0:04:450:04:48

I'm coming to find you, Hop!

0:04:480:04:50

I don't think Hop is over there, do you?

0:04:510:04:54

No, she isn't, I can see her, Driver Dan.

0:04:540:04:57

-You can? Where is she?

-She's behind you!

0:04:570:05:02

Have you found her? Where is she?

0:05:040:05:07

Baa, baa.

0:05:070:05:09

There you are!

0:05:090:05:10

Ta-da! I did a disappearing trick, too!

0:05:120:05:15

Thanks for helping me, Counting Sheep.

0:05:150:05:18

That was a brilliant trick, Hop. I thought you'd really disappeared.

0:05:180:05:23

I'm so glad you didn't, but why did you hide? You spoiled my magic show.

0:05:230:05:28

Sorry, Hip. I just wanted to do my own trick

0:05:280:05:31

because you wouldn't let me.

0:05:310:05:33

I suppose it was a clever trick.

0:05:330:05:37

HIP LAUGHS

0:05:370:05:38

And now it is time for us all to disappear to Story Corner.

0:05:380:05:44

THEY CHEER

0:05:440:05:46

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

-Tweet, tweet.

0:05:460:05:50

Are you ready, too?

0:05:500:05:52

-Then let's go!

-All aboard the Story Train!

0:05:520:05:55

It's time for a story.

0:05:550:05:57

It might be about a magic show.

0:05:570:05:59

I think it'll be about hiding.

0:05:590:06:01

-Or clever tricks.

-Yeah!

0:06:010:06:04

Tweet, tweet.

0:06:050:06:08

Baa. Baa.

0:06:130:06:15

-Hooray!

-Hooray!

-Who's ready for a story, then?

0:06:150:06:20

We are, Driver Dan! Is there one about a magician?

0:06:200:06:23

Hmm, I was thinking maybe... Aha!

0:06:230:06:27

I know just the book.

0:06:270:06:30

What's wrong, Driver Dan?

0:06:300:06:32

The book has disappeared. Oh, no, here it is.

0:06:320:06:36

It was just hiding. Is everyone settled and ready to listen?

0:06:360:06:40

Yes, Driver Dan.

0:06:400:06:42

-And all of you, sitting comfy and ready to listen?

-I'm ready.

0:06:420:06:46

This story is called Leon The Lonely Chameleon.

0:06:460:06:49

-What's a chameleon?

-It's a lizard that can change

0:06:490:06:53

the colour of its skin to match what it's sitting on.

0:06:530:06:56

Why does it do that?

0:06:560:06:58

To hide from bigger creatures that may want to eat it.

0:06:580:07:02

-That sounds like a great trick.

-It's a very clever trick.

0:07:020:07:06

This story is by Kate Henderson and the pictures are by Serena Curmi.

0:07:060:07:10

Deep in the rainforest lived a little chameleon called Leon.

0:07:100:07:15

Leon was amazing. He could change the colour of his skin

0:07:150:07:18

to make himself look almost invisible.

0:07:180:07:21

-So big animals can't eat him. Right, Driver Dan?

-Yes, Hop.

0:07:210:07:25

It was lovely living in the rainforest but Leon was lonely,

0:07:250:07:29

so he decided to go on a journey to find a friend to play with.

0:07:290:07:34

Quite soon, Leon saw a monkey swinging from the trees.

0:07:340:07:37

"Hello, monkey, would you like to be my friend?"

0:07:370:07:40

"Who said that?", said the monkey.

0:07:400:07:43

"How can I be your friend if I can't see you?" And he swung off.

0:07:430:07:47

"Never mind," thought Leon, and he kept looking.

0:07:470:07:50

-I see him, there on the branch.

-Well done, Hip. You found him!

0:07:500:07:54

Next, he saw a parrot flying through the sky.

0:07:540:07:57

"Hello, parrot, would you be my friend?"

0:07:570:08:00

"Who said that?", squawked the parrot. "How can I be your friend

0:08:000:08:04

"if I can't see you?" And she flew off.

0:08:040:08:07

"Never mind", thought Leon, and he kept on looking.

0:08:070:08:11

But each time he saw someone new, the very same thing happened.

0:08:110:08:15

Leon called out to a lion, then a bumblebee, then a giraffe,

0:08:150:08:19

but none of them could see him and none of them became Leon's friend.

0:08:190:08:23

"It's no use", said Leon sadly.

0:08:230:08:26

"I'll never find a real friend of my own."

0:08:260:08:29

Just then, he heard a little voice say,

0:08:290:08:31

"Hello, would you like to be my friend?"

0:08:310:08:34

Leon couldn't see anyone.

0:08:340:08:36

"How can I be your friend if I can't see you?", said Leon.

0:08:360:08:40

"I'm over here", said the voice,

0:08:400:08:42

which seemed to come from a beautiful flower.

0:08:420:08:46

As Leon looked closer he saw...

0:08:460:08:48

another chameleon!

0:08:480:08:50

"My name is Leona", said the lovely chameleon, looking up at Leon.

0:08:500:08:55

In no time at all, they were the best of friends.

0:08:550:08:58

Leon and Leona played together all day long in the rainforest.

0:08:580:09:02

Their favourite game was hide-and-seek!

0:09:020:09:07

-The end.

-That was a very happy ending.

0:09:070:09:10

I liked Leon and Leona.

0:09:100:09:13

Chameleons are very clever to hide so well.

0:09:130:09:16

Now it's your turn. Which bit did you like best?

0:09:160:09:19

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

0:09:190:09:23

Look at the lovely rain forest.

0:09:250:09:27

-I'm a chameleon!

-I'm hiding like Leon.

0:09:270:09:33

-Squawk!

-I'm being a parrot.

-Squawk!

-I'm flapping about.

0:09:330:09:37

-Roar!

-Now I'm a big furry lion.

0:09:390:09:42

-I'm being a giraffe.

-With a really long neck.

0:09:420:09:49

-I can't see Leon anywhere.

-Look, over there!

0:09:490:09:53

-Bye!

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:09:530:09:56

Thanks for showing me the story, everyone. I really enjoyed that.

0:09:570:10:02

Leon found the perfect friend to play with, didn't he?

0:10:020:10:05

Yes, he and Leona had lots of fun playing together.

0:10:050:10:09

Can we do a magic show together then, next time, Hip?

0:10:090:10:12

We'll call it The Great Hipini AND Hopini Show!

0:10:120:10:16

That sounds like a magical idea.

0:10:160:10:20

Glad you enjoyed the story, but now it's time to go. All aboard!

0:10:200:10:25

All aboard the Story Train!

0:10:250:10:27

Tweet, tweet.

0:10:270:10:29

Bye, everyone.

0:10:300:10:32

It's time to go, but let's come back soon because we all love stories!

0:10:320:10:37

Bye, Driver Dan!
