Somewhere hidden among thorny brambles
is a little Kingdom of Elves and Fairies
Everyone who lives here is very very small
I'm Ben Elf
And I'm Princess Holly
Come on let's play!
Wait for us
Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom
Today's adventure starts at the great elf tree
The Shooting Star
With this telescope I can see deep into space
Wise Old Elf, can I look?
Yes, right now the telescope is pointed at the moon
Ooh, it looks really close
Can I have a go?
If I turn the telescope this way, you can see distant stars
Oh, one of the stars is moving!
Maybe it's a shooting star?
Oo, I can see it too!
It's going to crash into the ground!
Wow that sounded close!
Let's take a look
This is where the shooting star landed
It's made a huge hole
Look at all the smoke
It must be very hot
Let's climb down and get a closer look
No! We'll have to come back tomorrow when it's cooled down
No time Daddy, a shooting star crashed into the meadow last night!
Ben! Don't you want your breakfast?
Later mum, I'm off to see the shooting star
Wow! What made that hole?
A shooting star, it fell out of the sky!
So what does this shooting star thingy look like?
We're just about to find out your majesty
Lower the claw!
It's got windows
Is it a spaceship?
It's a flying saucer
The top is opening!
Don't panic yet but this might be an alien invasion
Ahhh! Alien invasion, alien invasion!
Everyone please panic!
It's the friendly aliens we met on the moon
Oh look they've got a baby alien
I am not baby.
Whoops - sorry!
But you're so sweet and ickly
I am oldest one here.
We get smaller as we get older.
Oh we get bigger as we get older
My name is Zyros - take me to your leader
King Thistle is our leader
Ah, Thistle King - so you are leader
Well, the Wise Old Elf is also a leader in a way
Oh no your majesty you are our king and leader
We come in peace
We are here on holidays
Have you come far?
We come from planet bong
But our spaceship is crashed
You, Thistle King must fix it
As leader you are clever and wise
Yes, of course I'm clever and wise
Doesn't sound good
It is broken
Maybe I should take a look your majesty?
Elves are good at fixing flying saucers and I'm an Elf
Let's see does the engine use clockwork or batteries
Oh, it's all colourful and pretty
It's a massive pipes, cubes and incredibly complicated
I don't need to know the little details, just fix it
What a great and clever leader
Yes, we're very lucky. This is going to take some time
Mr. Zyros whilst you're waiting, would you like a tour of the Little Kingdom?
We would very much like that
Oh goody, this way!
First stop, Gaston's cave.
Gaston, are you in?
This is our friend, Gaston the Ladybird
Ah, a ladybird. So that is the sound a ladybird makes
What did he say?
He asked is Gaston is for eating?
No, we don't eat our friends! Do you?
Ah no, hardly ever.
Next on the tour, the little castle, where I live.
Hello darling. Ahhh
It's ok mummy, they're just aliens from planet bong
Oh that's alright then.
No you can't eat her
Thistle King is this where you make your important decisions?
Er, yes, yes I'm always making important decisions
Your majesty do you want soup or sausages for lunch?
Hmm, I think, sausages.
You are very wise Thistle King
Oh well, you know, I do my best
And Elf Ben, where do you live?
I live in a tree.
Tree? What is tree?
Here it is, the great Elf Tree.
Ah, I see, so a tree is a kind of apartment block.
I am learning much about your planet
Hello Ben! Agh aliens!
Yes dad, do you remember the aliens we met on the moon? They're here on holiday
Oh yes, those aliens. Happy holiday!
No! He is not to be eaten either!
Ah, this is such a wonderful planet. Have you been to other planets on holiday?
Oh yes, but this is best. You see, we are quite small and on most planets everyone is
We go to other planets for lovely relaxing holiday and get stepped on by big people.
It is not nice
Er, there are some big people here too
Big people? Here?
Agh. Big people!
Don't worry, it's only our friend Lucy. She's a big girl
Lucy, these are aliens, they're here on holiday
You are big aren't you?
Are there more like you?
There's my mum and dad, we're having a picnic over there
So there are three big people on this planet
Oh no, there's loads. Millions and millions. Most of them bigger than me
Hm, perhaps it is time for end of holiday
Ok! Let's go see if your flying saucer is mended
Ah, just in time. I've mended the flying saucer.
Well done Wise Old Elf.
All those tubes and things made it a bit like plumbing and elves are good at plumbing
Thank you I will now start the engine
Oh, that's not right. It sounds like the fairy car on a cold day
Yes it does
A big of magic always helps start the fairy car
No! You must never mix magic and plumbing
Thanks to me being an excellent plumber
Thanks to my magic fairy dust you mean
Now now, let's say elf skill mended the engine and fairy magic got it started.
Lucy! That's my dad, I better go
Mum, Dad you'll never guess what I just saw!
Don't tell me? Elves and Fairies again
Yes and aliens too!
Oh, aliens, of course Lucy
We must leave now, Ben, Holly would you like a little ride before we go
Dear Lucy, everyone knows, aliens don't exist.
Hi Ben and Holly
The aliens have to fly back to their planet, they just wanted to say hello to your parents
Hello big people, we have just been here on our holidays
We go now, bye bye
I think we'll have picnics somewhere else in future
Whee! Bye Ben and Holly. Next time you go on holiday, you must come to planet bong!
Ok, we will!
