  • Somewhere, hidden among-st thorny brambles, is a little kingdom of elves and fairies.

  • Everyone who lives here is very, very small.

  • I’m Ben Elf. [blow horns] woof woof

  • And I’m Princess Holly.

  • Come on, let’s play!

  • Wait for us!

  • Today’s adventure starts at the little castle.

  • This is a perfect day for a royal fairy picnic.

  • Good idea, Queen Thistle.

  • Hooray! I love picnics!

  • Nanny Plum, prepare the royal picnic basket.

  • Yes, your Majesty, and will we be having magic jelly for pudding?

  • Err….maybe we should give the magic jelly a miss this year?

  • But we always have magic jelly at the royal picnic.

  • Well, if you promise not to flood the entire kingdom with jelly, like last year.

  • Trust me, your Majesty. Nothing will go wrong this time.

  • Mummy, can Ben come on the picnic?

  • But, Holly, Ben is an elf.

  • And this is a royal FAIRY picnic.

  • Please can Ben come!? He’s my best friend.

  • Well, I suppose, as he’s your best friend.

  • Hooray! I’ll ring him.

  • Hello? Mrs Elf speaking.

  • Hello, Mrs Elf. Can I speak to Ben, please?

  • Righto. Ben, it’s Princess Holly.

  • Hi, Holly

  • Hi, Ben. Would you like to come on the royal fairy picnic today?

  • Yes, please!

  • Good! Come to the castle as quick as you can.

  • Mom, I’ve been invited on the royal fairy picnic.

  • How lovely! Youll need plenty of food, so you have enough food to share. What would you like?

  • Umpies, cheese and some fruit, please?

  • I’ll put in a whole strawberry. Then you have enough to everyone.

  • Thanks mum.

  • Bye! See you later.

  • Look everyone, its Ben.

  • Hello, everyone.

  • This should be fun. Weve never had an elf before on our royal picnic before.

  • Thank for inviting me. That looks heavy. Can I help you carry it?

  • Oh, thanks, Ben.

  • Oh. But it’s really light.

  • It’s a magic basket. Don’t worry, Ben. Youll see.

  • Look! It’s Gaston the Ladybird.

  • Hi, Gaston. Daddy can Gaston join our picnic?

  • I’m not sure. What did you say?

  • Nanny Plum can speak Ladybird language.

  • Gaston says he would like the pleasure of joining Princess Holly and Ben Elf on the Royal Fairy Picnic. Your Majesty.

  • Very well. It’s just a pity he is a bit smelly. Nanny Plum. Can you translate that?

  • Yes, I can, but I’d rather not.

  • Ah, here we are, the royal picnic spot.

  • Hooray!!

  • What’s this?

  • It’s food for the picnic.

  • You mean you actually bring food with you to a picnic?

  • Err..Yes?

  • It’s probably some strange elf custom, Your Majesty.

  • How charming.

  • I’ve got plenty of food for everyone.

  • Thanks, Ben, but fairies don’t eat elf food. We have our own special fairy food.

  • Here it is.

  • Oh, but the basket is empty. Youve forgotten your food.

  • Silly Ben, it isn’t empty. It’s a magic picnic basket.

  • It can give as anything we want.

  • Let’s start with the drinks. I feel like some sparkling fairy juice. Magic basket, oh, so old, let’s have fairy juice, sparkling and cold.

  • Yes, young elf, it is rather impressive.

  • Ben, perhaps you would like to choose the drinks for the children.

  • It can be anything you like.

  • Anything? Can I really ask for anything.

  • Yes, anything at all.

  • OK. Lemonade, please.

  • Isn’t that a bit boring and ordinary?

  • Elves like lemonade, and I‘m an elf.

  • But, Ben, you can choose you like in the whole wide world.

  • In that case, lemonade with a dollop of ice-cream.

  • Are you sure you wouldn’t like something more exotic?

  • OK, lemonade with two dollops of ice-cream.

  • Good choice Ben. Magic basket, please, lemonade with lots of ice cream.

  • Hurray! Thanks, Holly.

  • Don’t forget Gaston.

  • What do ladybird like to drink?

  • They like smelly things.

  • That’s right. By a ladybird’s growl, may the next drink be foull.

  • Nanny, youve made it too stinky, even for Gaston.

  • Nonsense! Ladybirds love rotten cabbage juice.

  • Now, for the main course. Magic basket, please, make as sandwiches with ham and cheese.

  • And, now full pudding.

  • Hurray! Magic jelly.

  • Nanny Plum, please don’t make too much this time.

  • We don’t want a repeat of last year’s jelly flood.

  • What happened?

  • Holly, Daisy and Poopy always help me make the pudding.

  • But last year we made bit too much and we

  • Flooded the whole kingdom with jelly.

  • I remember the jelly flood. Was that you?

  • Yes, that was us.

  • It was rather spectacular.

  • But it’s not going to happen again. Is it Nanny Plum?

  • Don’t worry, Your Majesty. Weve been practising safe new words that keeps the quantity down. Come along, girls.

  • Can I help too?

  • Yes, Ben. Children, repeat after me. Magic basket, please, jelly, jelly, but not a lot.

  • Magic basket, please, jelly, jelly, but not a lot. Hurray!

  • Theyre a bit small?

  • They are quite little, aren’t they?

  • Yes. Well need more.

  • OK. Let’s try this. Basket, basket, more, more, more.

  • Basket, Basket, more, more, more.

  • Phew! From a moment there, I thought we were going to have another jelly flood.

  • Jelly flood, jelly flood, jelly flood.

  • Nanny, there’s too much jelly.

  • Stop it, Nanny!

  • Shasam, shasing. Magic pudding, shrink, shrink, shrink.

  • Nanny, try a stronger spell!

  • I could use the stop magic spell, but that’s only for Royal emergencies.

  • I declare this a royal emergency!

  • Thunder and lightning north winds blow. Magic spells, away you go.

  • It worked! Huray!

  • Nanny! Where’s our food?

  • Sorry, I had to stop all the magic. And that included our magic picnic.

  • That’s strange. My food is still here.

  • That’s because it wasn’t made by magic.

  • And, luckily I’ve enough for everyone.

  • Thank you, Ben.

  • But, Nanny, you said fairies don’t eat elf food?

  • yes. Thank you for reminding me, Princess Holly.

  • We can have a nice time without a picnic? Let’s sit and anjoy the view.

  • Yummy!

  • I’m a bit hungry

  • Me too. I don’t believe I’ve ever eaten elf food before.

  • Would you like try some, King Thistle?

  • Oh! Thank you, Ben. Yum, yum!

  • Elf food is delicious.

  • It’s really is. Nanny Plum, you must try some.

  • Very well, your Majesty. Seeing seeing as it’s a Royal command.

  • And here is another Royal command. When you have a fairy picnic, always take an elf.

Somewhere, hidden among-st thorny brambles, is a little kingdom of elves and fairies.
