-It was a lovely day.
-were all playing with their people.
-Have you ever seen your shadow?
-Yes, everyone has a shadow.
-We can see them when the sun shines.
-If we look on the ground
-or the walls...
-..we can see our shapes
-doing exactly the same as us.
-Now then, our shadows are there
-all the time...
-..even when there's no sunshine.
-The sunshine helps us
-see them clearly.
-They love the sun.
-When it's a fine day,
-our shadows come out to play.
-When the sun rises, they run to
-their people and stay close to them.
-They stay out all day
-until the sun sets again.
-They run, skip, play on the swing,
-go for a picnic...
-..and splash in puddles.
-They have a wonderful time.
-The people do exactly
-what the shadows do.
-Even in the winter sun...
-..when the air is fresh and cold...
-..they still appear.
-They go for long walks
-and throw snowballs.
-They also build snowmen.
-The snowmen have shadows too.
-They don't do much, mind.
-They stand there,
-just like the snowmen...
-..until they disappear slowly.
-Now then, where was I?
-It was a wonderful morning.
-It was early and the shadows
-were getting ready...
-..for a fun day with their people.
-Gari the shadow was looking forward
-to joining Gari the boy.
-Gari the boy
-was visiting his cousin Elis.
-Gari the shadow hadn't seen
-Elis the shadow for a while.
-Emili the shadow had heard that
-Emili the girl was visiting Popi.
-This meant that Emili the shadow
-would see Popi the shadow...
-..her best friend.
-They'd spend their day talking
-and playing with their shadow toys.
-Dewi the shadow had heard
-that Dewi the boy...
-..was attending a football match.
-Football matches on a fine day
-It meant that the football shadows
-would play too.
-And so, Dewi the shadow and Dewi the
-boy could have a game to remember.
-But one shadow wasn't having
-as much fun as the others.
-His name was Alffi.
-He wasn't going out
-to play in the sunshine.
-He preferred staying indoors.
-If he went out,
-he'd sit under a tree...
-..watching the other shadows
-"Come on, Alffi," the other shadows
-would shout, "Come and play with us.
-"It's a lovely sunny day -
-perfect for all kinds of shadows."
-But Alffi would just sit down
-and grab his knees.
-He wanted to join in so much...
-..but he couldn't.
-There was good reason for this.
-Alffi the shadow
-didn't have Alffi the boy.
-He didn't have a person to follow.
-Without one of those,
-there is no shadow.
-Alffi was sad but he enjoyed
-listening to the stories...
-..about the fun the other shadows
-had with their people.
-But he knew
-he could never join them.
-Not until he had Alffi the boy.
-"He must be out there somewhere,"
-said Dewi the shadow one day.
-"I don't think so
-or I would have seen him by now."
-"Why don't you go and look for him?"
-"Maybe you should go to him."
-"That sounds easy," said Alffi.
-"It's not, is it?
-"Even if Alffi the boy
-is out there...
-"..I don't think
-he wants a shadow at all.
-"What's that supposed to mean?"
-asked Gari the shadow.
-"Well, your people
-follow you around all day long.
-"You're so good at having fun.
-"I don't know how to have fun."
-"Look, why don't you join us
-in the sun tomorrow?
-"Come on, try it."
-said Dewi the shadow.
-"Maybe," replied Alffi.
-But, deep down, he didn't think
-he'd ever go out in the sun.
-He was too sad.
-the sun rose the following day.
-Up over the hills, filling the world
-with its golden glow.
-Gari, Emili and Dewi the shadows
-were ready for it.
-But, as they stepped
-into the sunshine, Gari said...
-.."Hey, what about Alffi?
-"Our people are all going to
-the park today for a school picnic.
-"There'll be plenty
-of shadows there.
-"No-one will notice Alffi
-without his boy.
-"We'll go and fetch him."
-Emili and Dewi thought this
-was an excellent idea.
-They went to search for Alffi.
-Alffi the shadow was heading towards
-the leafy tree to sit under it.
-"No excuses," said Emili,
-"Up you come and stay close to us.
-"We're going to the school picnic
-in the park."
-Alffi the shadow sighed.
-Under protest, he joined
-Emili, Gari and Dewi the shadows.
-They followed Emili the girl
-and Dewi and Gari the boys.
-Alffi hid under Emili's big bag.
-Off they went towards the park.
-When they reached the park...
-..there were shadows everywhere
-with their happy people.
-Their laughter and chatter
-filled the air.
-But one little boy
-sat alone under a tree...
-..watching the others having fun.
-He looked sad and downhearted.
-Then, Alffi the shadow
-heard Gari the boy shouting.
-"Come on, Alffi boy, come and play
-rounders. You'll love it."
-"No, it's OK,"
-replied the little boy.
-Could this be Alffi the boy?
-Alffi the shadow ran as fast as he
-could to join Dewi, Emili and Gari.
-Puffing away, he said...
-.."It's him. I've...
-"Phew. I've found Alffi the boy."
-"What?" said Gari. "Incredible.
-Go and join him quickly.
-"Where is he?"
-"Under the tree,"
-said Alffi the shadow.
-"Right, come on,"
-said Gari the shadow.
-He dragged Gari the boy with him.
-When they reached
-the sad little boy...
-..Gari nudged Alffi the shadow.
-Slowly, Alffi attached himself
-carefully to Alffi the boy.
-As soon as he'd done that,
-Alffi the boy stood up...
-..and for the first time ever,
-he stepped into the sunshine.
-Alffi the boy
-and Alffi the shadow...
-..felt the warm rays from the sun.
-Alffi said happily...
-.."If you look towards the sun,
-the world is a far better place."
