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?
Green and bouncy.
Listen, I can hear a bell. Ding ding.
It sounds like Precious.
There she is. Precious!
-Look, there's her carriage.
-Bippity's carriage is there too.
But I can't see Bippity.
You're right, it is Loopy and Precious,
but I can't see Bippity. I wonder what they're doing. Let's find out.
Hello, Driver Dan.
-Hello, you two. Are you building a sandcastle?
Or maybe we're going to jump in muddy puddles.
-That looks like fun, Loopy.
You're right, Driver Dan. Jumping in muddy puddles does look like fun!
But...what if we build the biggest sandcastle ever?
With towers and a moat! Ooh!
Oh, so you are going to build a sandcastle, Precious.
Hmm. Maybe building a sandcastle would be fun.
Let's build a sandcastle. We could put flags on the towers.
Hmm. But playing in muddy puddles is fun too.
Oh, dear, Twinkle.
I don't think Loopy and Precious can choose which game to play.
Why don't you play both games?
Jumping in muddy puddles and in the sandpit.
But what shall we play first?
What are you playing?
Hello, Bippity, we're building sandcastles.
Or we're playing in muddy puddles.
Split, splat, splot.
Loopy and Precious can't choose what to play first.
-Which game would you choose to play first, Bippity?
sandcastles or muddy puddles?
Um...I was thinking it would be fun to play hide-and-seek today.
-Oh! I love playing hide-and-seek.
Oh, yes, that's a great idea, Bippity.
Are you going to play hide-and-seek first?
Maybe, but what about jumping in puddles or building sandcastles?
Bip-bippity-bip. I can help. I've got an idea.
-What's he making?
-I think we're about to find out.
Ooh, what's that?
This is my choosy wheel with each of our games on it. Bippity bippity.
-Jumping in muddy puddles.
And trees and bushes must be hide-and-seek.
That's great, Bippity.
And when we spin the wheel, the arrow chooses which game to play.
-Would you like to spin the choosy wheel, Driver Dan?
Ha-ha! Thank you.
And the choosy wheel chooses...
-Bippity-bip. You hide and I'll try and find you.
-Ssh! Let's hide, too.
-Yeah, Driver Dan, hide.
Come on, Twinkle.
Eight...nine...ten! Coming! Ready or not!
Oh! Found you! Ha-ha!
Aw, that was quick!
Muddy puddles are fun to jump in but they also leave muddy footprints.
I followed them and found you. Let's find the others.
-You were easy to find! We followed your sandy footprints.
Ssh! We need to find Driver Dan and Twinkle. Come on.
-I wonder where they're hiding.
-I can't see them anywhere.
-Oh, what was that?
-It sounded like the Story Train.
A-ha! Found you!
So you did! I enjoyed that, even if Twinkle did help you a little bit!
-That game was great fun!
Yes. Can we spin again to find out what to play next?
I don't think we need to spin the choosy wheel to find that out.
It's time to go to Story Corner on the Story Train!
All hooked up. Are we ready to go, Twinkle?
Are you ready too? Then let's go!
CHILDREN: All aboard the Story Train! We're going to have a story!
I think it will be about choosing games.
-What about hide and seek?
Is everyone ready for a story?
Is it going to be a story about mud?
A-ha! I know just the book.
-Is everybody settled down and ready to listen?
And all of you, sitting down comfy and ready to listen?
-CHILDREN: Yes, Dan.
-This story is called Mowan And The Runaway Moon.
It was written by Timothy Knapman and the pictures are by Jago Silva.
One evening, Mowan looked out and saw the moon shining in the sky.
"The moon must be bored
"and on the lookout for something to do," said Mowan.
"I wonder if it would like to play with me."
Oh, yes, I'm sure the moon would LOVE to play. Bip-bip!
You're right, Bippity.
So Mowan reached up as high as he could
and pulled the moon down, out of the sky.
"Hello, Moon." The moon was smaller than Mowan was expecting.
It was bouncy like a ball. Boing! Boing! Boing! Boing!
So Mowan took it out to play. The moon rolled down the dusty slopes.
Whee! Splashed across sparkling streams. Splish! Splosh!
And even pretended to be a football. "Goal!"
I like the boinging and splashing!
The moon was having so much fun that it just couldn't stop.
"Come back!" cried Mowan. The moon just kept on bouncing.
It spooked snakes and scattered birds.
It bothered bats and woke up wombats
and bounced on and on until it got caught up in some thick scrub.
"There you are, you naughty moon!" said Mowan. "Don't worry."
And he untangled the moon from the scrub.
By now, night had fallen and they were lost in the dark.
Mowan looked around. He felt small and scared.
"What are we going to do?" he cried.
Then the moon had a bright idea.
It beamed, so that Mowan could see the way back home.
Mowan wished the moon didn't have to go.
He wished he could keep the moon and play with it every night
but then he thought about all the people who'd get lost in the dark.
So he reached up as high as he could and put the moon where it belonged.
And from then on, whenever the moon was bored
and on the lookout for something to do, it knew exactly where to go.
And it never bounced off again. Well, almost never.
-The end. Did you enjoy that story?
Mowan and the moon chose some great games to play.
And they didn't even have a choosy wheel to help them.
Now it's your turn. Which bit did you like best?
Come on, it's time to show me the story.
Look! There's the moon. It's very pretty.
I'm reaching for the moon like Mowan.
I'm bouncing like the moon!
Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy!
We're playing with the moon again. We're splashing in the streams.
-Let's kick it!
-Wow! Look at that!
-I can kick really far.
Quick, chase it! Follow the moon!
I'm balancing like Mowan.
Wobble, wobble! Whoa!
-Goodnight, moon, see you soon!
That looked like great fun.
Thanks for showing me the story.
-Ah, Mowan and the moon enjoyed playing together.
-Just like us!
Whichever game we choose to play!
And I think it was a good choice of story. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Yeah! I wonder what the choosy wheel
will choose for us to play next time?
I think it will choose jumping in muddy puddles!
Bip-bippity-bip! Or building sandcastles!
Or hide and seek again!
Glad you enjoyed the story, everyone, but now it's time to go.
-All aboard the Story Train!
It's time to go but let's come back soon because we all love stories!
CHILDREN: Bye, Driver Dan! Bye!
I like stories about magic.
I like stories about time travel.
I like stories about animals.
My favourites are stories about planes.
Driver Dan and a loveable cast of animated friends go on an exciting journey to Story Corner.
Bippity invents something special that helps his friends to play even more games.
Featuring the story Mowan and the Runaway Moon.
