Night-time has come and it’s time for Bluephant to go to bed, but the little elephant just doesn’t want to – he’s right in the middle of building a tower. All the same, when his mother promises to read him a bedtime story, Bluephant quickly puts away his blocks, washes up, and snuggles into bed to wait. Bluephant wonders what tale his mother will tell today. Or maybe his father will be the one telling a story, instead? Perhaps the one about penguins and a funny carrot that grew so long it poked through to the other side of the world? Nevertheless, Bluephant’s mother reads aloud a book about five little monkeys taking a train home.
