  • - Hi there, it's Alan from Sesame Street.

  • Now I know we're all getting used to a new way

  • of doing things, but you know what?

  • We are here for each other.

  • So I thought it might be fun today to read a story together.

  • Do you want to do that?

  • Should we read a story?

  • All right, let's do it.

  • This is one of my favorite books and it's called

  • "Another Monster at the End of this Book" by Jon Stone

  • and illustrated by Michael Smollin.

  • and it stars two of our furry little friends.

  • Who's this blue guy right here?

  • That's right, that is Grover.

  • And our red furry little friend?

  • That's right, that's Elmo.

  • All right, let's read the book.

  • Grover says, "Elmo, I am not going to the end of this book

  • "if there is a monster there.

  • "Monsters are not to be trifled with.

  • "I am going to stay right here on the first page."

  • And then Elmo says, "Okay, Mr. Grover.

  • "Elmo will go see the monster all by himself.

  • "Turn the page, please."

  • I guess we better turn the page.

  • All right.

  • Grover says, "Will you please stop turning pages?

  • "Every time you turn the page, we get close to the monster

  • "At the end of this book!

  • "Elmo, come with me.

  • "We are going home now!

  • "Elmo, Elmo?

  • "Where are you?"

  • And Elmo says, "Turn the page."

  • So we better turn the page.

  • All right.

  • Grover says, "Elmo, do you not understand

  • "that at the end of this book, there is a monster?

  • "It could be a nice furry monster like you or me

  • "or Cookie or Herry.

  • "But it could also be a very big, scary, hungry monster

  • "with sharp teeth and claws and an attitude!

  • "Therefore, I am putting these hundreds of paper clips here,

  • "just to remind you that we are not going to the end

  • "of this book."

  • And then Elmo says, "Yes, Mr. Grover.

  • "Turn the page, please."

  • And look, see all the paper clips?

  • All the paper clips.

  • All right, next page.

  • And then Grover says, "All right, no more Mister nice guy!

  • "I have now taken all your alphabet blocks

  • "and built a huge castle right here.

  • "No one can turn the page now!"

  • And then Elmo says, "Turny, turny, turn turn!"

  • All right, so we better turny turny, turn turn, right?

  • All right.

  • And then Grover says, "Enough is enough!

  • "I, Grover, am now gluing this page down

  • "so you cannot turn it and if you cannot turn the page,

  • "we will not get to the monster at the end of this book!"

  • And then Elmo says, "Do it."

  • So we better do it.

  • All right, let's turn the page.

  • All right.

  • Grover says, "Elmo, please, please forget about

  • "seeing the monster at the end of this book

  • "and come back with me to the beginning of the book.

  • "Please, pretty please."

  • And then Elmo says, "Little Elmo wants to see the monster.

  • "Turn the page."

  • So we better turn the page.

  • All right.

  • And then Grover says, "This will stop you

  • "from turning pages!

  • "I, Grover, have put up a thick steel wall

  • "so no one can ever, ever turn this page.

  • "What do you say to that little Elmo?

  • "Elmo, Elmo?

  • "Where are you Elmo?"

  • And then from the other side of the wall,

  • Elmo says, "Elmo is on the next page."

  • So we better turn the page.

  • And then Grover says, "All right.

  • "We will go see the monster.

  • "But just one little peek.

  • "So listen carefully.

  • "You tiptoe around to the back of the book.

  • "I, Grover, will stay here.

  • "When I say, 'turn the page,'

  • "you jump in from the back of the book and I will jump in

  • "from the front.

  • "We will see the monster and then we will run

  • "like bunny rabbits!"

  • And Elmo likes that idea.

  • All right, let's see what happens.

  • Then Grover says, "Are you at the back of the book,

  • "little Elmo?"

  • And Elmo says, "Yes. Mr. Grover."

  • Grover says, "Then here we go!

  • "One, two, get ready to turn the page

  • "and then run like a bunny rabbit!

  • "Three, turn the page!"

  • Let's turn the page.

  • (Alan yells)

  • They both yell at each other.

  • And let me turn the page.

  • Then Grover says, "I never thought that the monster

  • "at the end of this book would be you, little Elmo!

  • And Elmo says, "No, no, Mr. Grover,

  • "you are the monster at the end of this book.

  • "I saw you!"

  • Then they both say, "you, you, you, you, you, you,

  • "you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you,

  • "you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you

  • (gasps) you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you

  • "you, you, you, you, you!"

  • And then Grover says, "Whatever!"

  • And then we turn the page.

  • And then an exhausted Grover says, "Where are you going?"

  • And Elmo says, "Elmo is going back two pages

  • "to see the monster again."

  • The end.

  • Did you like that book?

  • I hope so.

  • All right.

  • We're gonna read some more books very soon, okay?

  • I hope you enjoyed it.

  • Bye bye!
