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 can see one of our Story Train friends.
Can you see who it is?
It's Precious and Tallulah!
Look, she's got a watering can.
They're watering that plant.
So they are. Let's go and see what's going on, shall we?
Hello, Precious and Tallulah. Is everything all right?
Hello, Driver Dan.
SHE SIGHS Not really.
Hi, Driver Dan.
It's our orange flower.
-Um, what orange flower?
When Sweetie gave us this plant, it has a lovely orange flower on it.
Now it's gone. We tried watering it, but that didn't work.
Oh, may I take a look?
-Oh, please don't do that, Driver Dan.
-Huh? Why not?
The flower was there, on the plant, until we moved it.
Then it was gone.
We don't think it liked being moved.
Oh! Shall we go and ask Sweetie? Maybe she knows the answer.
-Ooh, but we can't leave the plant.
-Or move it. It might get even worse.
Good thinking, you two. Shall I go and get Sweetie on the Story Train,
-while you stay here and look after the flower?
-Yes, please, Driver Dan.
Um, there must be something else we can try.
SHE GASPS Oh! That's it!
We could sing a song!
-Sing? To a plant?
Yes. Sweetie sings to her plants.
Maybe the flowers like it.
What shall we sing?
Um... Er... Um...
SHE CLEARS THROAT
# Pretty flower, where are you?
# Come and see-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee
# Precious and Tallulah too
BOTH: # Pretty flower, where are you?
# Come and see-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee
# Precious and Tallulah too. #
Ooh, it didn't work.
Phew! That dancing made me hot.
That's it - maybe the flower is too hot.
Oh, yes! I'll fan it with my ears.
Ooh, that's lovely.
Hurray, the Story Train's back.
With Sweetie to solve our flower mystery.
Hello again, you two.
Ooh, hello, everybody.
Oh, thank you, Driver Dan. Hi, Sweetie.
Look, something's wrong with the flower you gave us.
-We moved it to a safe place out of the hot sun.
-But the flower closed.
-We tried water.
SHE SIGHS But the flower won't open.
You've looked after the plant very well.
Yes, you have. Sweetie, can you show us how to make the flower come back?
PRECIOUS GASPS Wow!
This flower is very special.
It only opens when it's in the sun.
When it's not in the sun, like here in the shade,
the flower closes.
That's so clever!
SHE LAUGHS Oh, thank you, Sweetie.
I love our special sunshine flower.
So now that you know it's OK to move the flower,
is there anywhere you'd like to move it to?
Twinkle, are we ready to go?
And are you ready too? Then let's go!
All aboard the Story Train!
We're going to have a story!
I think it'll be a story about flowers!
Or singing to flowers.
-Or a silly story!
-Who's ready for a story, then?
-Ready already, Driver Dan.
A-ha! I know just the book.
Is everyone settled down and ready to listen?
-I'm ready, Dan.
And you? Sitting down comfy and ready to listen?
Ready, Driver Dan!
This story is called Beesee The Cat.
Rania Zbib Daher wrote the story,
and Angela Nurpetlian drew the pictures.
One day, while Farrah was playing in the park,
she spotted a small, grey cat with silky soft fur
and eyes that twinkled like the moon.
That's right, Twinkle! They twinkled like the moon.
Farrah and the cat played all day, and when it was time to go home,
the little cat followed Farrah all the way back to her house.
"Would you like to come in?," she asked,
picking up the cat and cuddling her.
"I'll call you Beesee," she said, and Beesee purred.
At bedtime, Farrah laid a small basket next to her bed
for Beesee to sleep in.
Then, she plumped up her pillows,
put on her pyjamas and got into bed.
Soon, they were both fast asleep.
THEY PRETEND TO SNORE
But in the middle of the night, Farrah woke up
and saw that Beesee was on the windowsill.
She was purring to the moon.
I wonder if our special flower would open up in the moonlight.
Hmm, maybe if the moon was as bright as Beesee's moon.
From the tip of the moon dangled a silver cord,
and the other end of it was tied to Farrah's bedpost.
Farrah laughed in delight
as the moon tugged the silver cord
and she, Beesee and the bed
floated up, out of the window
and into the soft night sky.
Up they flew,
until they were sailing above the big, blue sea.
A dolphin flipped them up a tiny shell from the ocean.
Up they flew, over valleys and trees,
and a swallow dropped them a small olive branch.
Up they flew, over icy white peaks,
and a polar bear flicked them a ball of snow.
Up they flew, over the desert,
and the snowball melted
into delicious drops of water
that fell on a thirsty camel.
He lifted his head and tossed them a desert rose.
Woo-hoo! A camel with two humps!
But no tail-bell.
"How amazing," yawned Farrah,
as the moon brought them safely home again.
"Goodnight, Beesee. Thank you for the adventure."
Beesee purred and Farrah fell fast asleep.
The next morning, Farrah couldn't see Beasley anywhere,
but she did find a shiny seashell,
a beautiful desert rose
and a small olive branch.
Farrah planted it in her garden to remind her of Beesee
and her magical moonlit adventure.
The end. Did you enjoy the story?
Ooh, yes, Driver Dan.
That was an exciting adventure.
I liked the treasures that Farrah brought back.
I liked the desert rose flower.
And now it's your turn.
Which bit did you like best? Come on, it's time to show me the story.
Let's skip, come on.
I'm good at this.
We're flying on the bed.
Wow, look, the moon is pulling us.
Look, a dolphin!
We're being dolphins, too, swimming like this.
-Ooh, it's freezing here.
-Look, it's the polar bear.
It's too cold for me! Brr!
That was a long trip.
We're back now.
Time for a sleep. Night-night!
-I can't see the cat anywhere.
But look! There's the shell and the olive branch.
Well done. That was really good. Thanks for showing me the story.
Farrah and Beesee went on a wonderful adventure,
-Yes, but Driver Dan,
was Farrah sad at the end because Beesee had gone?
I don't think she was sad.
She was happy that Beesee had come to stay for one magical night.
And she had all those things to remind her of their adventures.
Like the olive branch and the desert rose flower.
Like us. We've got a special flower to remind us of our adventures today.
Yes, you do, and you need to keep on looking after it.
-We will, won't we, Tallulah?
Come on, let's check the plant's OK.
I'm glad you all liked the story, 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!
-Bye, Driver Dan!
I like magical stories.
I like stories about animals.
I like stories that are funny.
Scary stories are the best. Boo!

Sweetie has given them a beautiful bright-orange flower in a pot, but as soon as they touch it the flower suddenly closes all of its orange petals. They try everything they can think of to make the flower open up its orange petals again - does it need watering? Or cheering up? Or cooling down? While Precious and Tallulah have fun trying to solve the mystery, Driver Dan heads off to look for Sweetie to see if she knows the answer.
