KNOCK AT WINDOW
-ANIMALS: Hi, Lucy!
Where are you going on holiday?
-I'm going on an adventure play day.
-BOTH: Adventure play day?
-That sounds fun.
-Can we come?
It's only for children, silly.
Anyway, I don't really want to go.
-But why not?
-The children could be older and bigger than me.
They might be eight years old.
But it's nice to make new friends.
I'm not sure. What if the others don't want to play with me?
I'm sure they will.
-Sometimes big kids can be little...
-..and little kids can be big!
-Who said that?
It's a ball. A talking ball!
-It's Adam the Armadillo. Would you like to hear my story?
Better sit down comfortably, then.
'One day, I was climbing up a mountain. Like all armadillos
'I was quite good at climbing, and even better at rolling down!'
'In the valley below,
'there was Jaz the Jaguar, Leopoldo the Llama and Dudley the Sloth.
'They were going to play football.
'I wanted to play football, too.' Wheeee!
Hey, look who's here!
I'm not a marmaladillo! I'm an armadillo.
ALL: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...
-What are you doing here? Lost your mum?
-I want to play football.
You? Play football? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. Don't make me laugh.
Here, catch this! Ha, ha, ha, ha!
YOU can't play football.
Football is for big animals only. Animals like us.
Definitely not for marmaladillos.
'So I just sat down quietly, and watched the others play.'
ALL: Oh, no! DUDLEY: No more watermelon.
-What are we going to do now?
-I have an idea.
You wanted to play football, didn't you? Well, now you can.
Thanks. Which team can I be on? Can I be in your team? Please?
Your not going to be on anyone's team. You're the...
-THEY ALL LAUGH
But I don't want to be the football.
If you're the football this time, next time you can be on my team.
Yeah! Goal! One - nil!
Hey, man, that's not fair!
Ah, ah, atchoo!
Hey, stop! I've caught a cold. Atchoo!
You should run to your mummy for medicine.
Hey, watch this!
It looks dark and creepy.
The sort of place where monsters live.
Adam's in there. We must get him out.
After all, he's only a little animal
and we're big and brave, right?
Yeah, so we should rescue him.
What are you looking at ME for? YOU go in there.
Me? Why me? YOU go!
-No, no, you.
Stop it! Let's draw straws.
'Leopoldo drew the shortest straw.'
There's a monster in the cave. It's big, ugly and has a terrible roar!
You've got the next shortest straw.
I'LL sort out that monster.
I suppose it's my turn.
'Dudley stayed inside the cave for a very long time.'
We'll have to go in together.
Together, we won't be scared.
'So, that's what Jaz, Leopoldo and Dudley did.'
JAZ: Stop that noise. Leopoldo(!)
I can't help it.
DUDLEY: Look, over there.
Are you OK?
Don't worry, Adam. WE'LL save you from the monster.
-Monster? What monster?
-The terrible monster.
With the terrible roar.
-It must be really close!
That's not a monster, silly.
It's just the echo of my sneezes. Atchoo!
Rooaaargh-choo, choo-roaargh, choo!
See? You weren't scared of me, were you?
I'm only a little animal and you're all so big.
ALL: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
That was the echo too, ha, ha, ha.
'So, we all went and played football
'but this time, I wasn't the ball.' Yeah!
It's time for bed now. Remember, it's adventure time tomorrow.
ALL: Sweet dreams!
