  • Come on, come and sit down.

  • Listen very quietly to a story. I love listening to stories, don't you?

  • I'm Mimi and I tell stories

  • Once there were three baby owls:

  • Sarah and Percy and Bill.

  • They lived in a hole in the trunk of a tree with their owl mother.

  • The hole had twigs and leaves and owl feathers in it. It was their house.

  • One night they woke up and their old mother was gone.

  • Where's mummy? asked Sarah.

  • Oh my goodness! said Percy.

  • I want my mummy! said Bill.

  • The baby owls thought (all owls think a lot)

  • I think she's gone hunting, said Sarah.

  • To get us our food! said Percy.

  • I want my mummy! said Bill.

  • But there owl mother didn't come.

  • The baby owls came out of their house and they sat on the tree and waited.

  • A big branch for Sarah, a small branch for Percy, and an old bit of Ivy for Bill.

  • She'll be back, said Sarah.

  • Back soon! said Percy.

  • I want my mummy! said Bill

  • It was dark in the wood and they had to be brave, for things that moved all around them.

  • She'll bring us mice and things that are nice, said Sarah.

  • I suppose so! said Percy.

  • I want my mummy! said Bill

  • They sat and they thought (all owls think a lot)

  • I think we should all sit on my branch, said Sarah.

  • And they did, all three together.

  • Suppose she got lost, said Sara.

  • Or a fox got her, said Percy.

  • I want my mummy! said Bill.

  • And the baby owls closed their owl eyes and wished that their owl mother would come.

  • And she came.

  • Soft and silent, she swooped through the trees to Sara and Percy and Bill.

  • Mummy! they cried and they flapped and they danced,

  • and they bounced up and down on their branch.

  • What's all the fuss? their owl mother asked.

  • You knew I'd come back.

  • the baby owls thought (all owls think a lot)

  • I knew it, said Sara.

  • And I knew it, said Percy.

  • I love my mummy! said Bill.

  • And that's Mimi and meee...

Come on, come and sit down.
