The theme song plays.

The Yetily Bookshop appears. Nina and Leon, two little mice, watch Yeti sleep inside. They run across a bookshelf and climb a pile a books. One of them falls on Yeti's head waking him up. He smiles, grabs the book and Nina and Leon sit on his arms.

It sings COME AND JOIN US IN THE
BOOKSHOP
WITH TWO LITTLE MICE
AND A BIG YETI
LET'S ALL SIT DOWN
FOR A STORY
THEY'RE READ FOR YOU AND ME

Nina and Leon say YETI TALES!
(giggling)

Today's episode is "The Big Crow."

Nina sits in the bookstore window. She wears a face mask.

Nina says YETILY, HERE WE ARE!
READY FOR OUR STORY.

Yetily says OH, NINA, YOU'RE SO CUTE.
YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL.

Leon appears wearing a feather mask and says YETILY, YETILY, WHAT ABOUT
ME?
LOOK!

Yetily says OH, HEY, LEON!
WHAT DID YOU STICK ONTO YOUR
MASK?

Nina says I TOLD YOU!
YOU PUT TOO MANY COLOURS ON.
YOU SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO ME
AND NOT PUT ON SO MANY OF THEM.

Yetily says YEAH, YES.
THAT'S REALLY QUITE A LOT, BUT...
BUT IT LOOKS JUST GREAT ON YOU
ALL THE SAME.

Leon says IT'S JUST THAT TODAY'S STORY
IS SUPPOSED TO BE ALL ABOUT
BIRDS WITH LOTS OF DIFFERENT
COLOURS.

Nina says WELL, YOU'VE REALLY OUTDONE
YOURSELF HERE.
YOU LOOK LIKE A PARROT.

Leon says YEAH, WELL, IT'S JUST THAT I
REALLY LIKE BLUE AND GREEN, TOO,
AND THIS YELLOW HERE IS SO I'LL
LOOK LIKE A CHICK.
PEEP, PEEP, PEEP, PEEP, PEEP,
PEEP, PEEP...

Nina says YOU KNOW WHAT, LEON?
NOT ALL BIRDS HAVE AS MANY
COLOURS AS THAT.

Yetily says THAT'S TRUE, NINA, AND THE
ONE IN MY STORY IS BLACK ALL
OVER.

Leon says OH, YES, YETILY!

Nina says YES, TELL US THE STORY!
THE STORY!

(giggling)

Yetily says ARE YOU READY, MY LITTLE
MICE?

They sit next to Yetily on a few cushions.

The mice say YES!

Yetily says SO, LET'S BEGIN THE STORY.

Yetily holds a white a black book.

He reads THE BIG CROW
BY BEATRICE
FONTANEL AND ANTOINE GUILLOPPÉ.

He opens the book and reads "THERE WAS A BIG CROW WHO SAW
THE WORLD IN BLACK AND WHITE."
"HE WAS DEPRESSED AND WALKED
ALONG THE FROZE IN THE
NEWLY-PLOUGHED FIELD."

He flips the page and reads "HE THOUGHT, 'HOW I WOULD LIKE
TO BE A BIRD ON THE A TROPICAL
ISLAND, A BIRD OF PARADISE,
COLOURED ALL OVER, WITH A BIG
TUFT OF FEATHERS AND A LONG
TAIL, SINGING A LOVELY MELODY.'"

Leon says OH, LOOK, NINA, HE WANTS TO
BE COLOURED ALL OVER LIKE THE
BIG PARROT!

Nina says I THINK THAT ONE'S A
TOUCAN.
THIS IS THE PARROT HERE.

Leon says OH, YEAH, YEAH, THAT...
WHAT I MEANT.

Yetily says TSK, TSK, THAT IS WHAT I
MEAN, LEON.

Leon says AH, ALL RIGHT.

Yetily reads "'BUT I'M NOT LIKE
THAT AT ALL.'"
"'I'M BLACK.'"
"'BLACK, BLACK!'."
"'BLACK AS AN ELDERBERRY WHEN
IT'S OVERRIPE!'."
"'AND I GO, CROAK, CROAK!'."

Nina says CROAK, CROAK, CROAK!
(giggling)

Yetily reads "'I AM DREAMING OF RED,
YELLOW, GREEN AND SILVER IN MY
COAL-LIKE, BLACK COAT.'"
"'FEATHERS THAT CURL UP AND
TREMBLE IN THE EASTERN WINDS.'"
"'THAT'S WHAT I WOULD HAVE
LIKED.'"

An illustration shows the crow admiring colourful birds flying over the sea.

Leon says YELLOW LIKE THE SUN, GREEN
LIKE THE SPRINGTIME!

Leon says RED LIKE-- LIKE A RED HEN!

Yetily says OH, YES.

Leon says OH, HOW BLEAKLY BLACK
AND WHITE EVERYTHING LOOKS NOW.

Yetily reads "'BUT JUST LOOK AT
ME!'."
"'I'M BLACK AS PITCH OR TAR,
DEPENDING ON YOUR INSPIRATION.'"
"'BLACK INSIDE AND OUT, FROM MY
FEET TO MY BEAK, AND NO OTHER
COLOUR AT ALL.'"
"'WHY, OH, WHY, CROAK, CROAK!'."
"'CROAK!'."
"'AT LEAST IF I HAD A FEW WHITE
FEATHERS HERE AND THERE, I'D
LOOK LIKE A MAGPIE CAT-WALKING
IN AN EVENING DRESS ALL DAY
LONG.'"

Nina says AH, WHEN HE DREAMS, IT'S IN
COLOUR AND EVERYTHING'S BLACK
AND WHITE IN REAL LIFE.
MY FAVOURITE COLOUR IS YELLOW
BECAUSE IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE
LAUGHING.
(giggling)

Leon says I LIKE RED BETTER BECAUSE IT
MAKES YOU STRONG!

Yetily chuckles and says AH, WELL, MY FAVOURITES ARE
BLUEBERRY BLUE, RASPBERRY PINK,
RED CURRANT RED, LEMON YELLOW,
ALMOND GREEN!
(giggling)

Leon says THAT'S FUNNY, YETILY.
THOSE ARE ALL COLOURS OF THINGS
YOU CAN EAT.

Yetily says MM.

Yetily flips the page and reads "BUT THERE'S NO TROPICAL JUNGLE
WITH MULTI-COLOURED BIRDS."
"IT STARTS TO SNOW ACROSS THE
COUNTRYSIDE."
"THE BIG CROW SIGHS."
"'AND NOW HERE COMES THE COLD
WEATHER, CROAK, CROAK, CROAK!'."

Leon says EVERYTHING'S ALL WHITE NOW.

Nina says THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT
SNOWS.
IT'S PRETTY HARD ON HIM BECAUSE
IT'S GETTING COLD.

Yetily reads "BUT 'ROUND THE
CORNER, HE BUMPS INTO AN OLD
POET OUT FOR A WALK, WHO NOTICES
THAT THE CROW IS FEELING
DEPRESSED."
"'GREAT BIG CROW, WHAT'S THE
MATTER?'."
"'CROAK, CROAK, CROAK, I'VE
GIVEN UP ALL HOPE!'."
"'MY FATE IS TO GO ON BEING
TOTALLY BLACK, UNLESS YOU HAPPEN
TO BE A POWERFUL WIZARD.'"

Nina says UH, IS HE SUPPOSED TO
BE A WIZARD?

Leon says NO, YETILY SAID AN OLD POET.
UH, WHAT IS AN OLD POET ANYWAY?
CAN HE DO MAGIC TRICKS?

Yetily says WELL, AN OLD POET MIGHT WELL
PERFORM MAGIC BUT ONLY USING
WORDS.

Leon says OH.

Yetily reads "'A WIZARD, EH?'."
"'TRUTHFULLY, NO.'"
"'I'M JUST A POET, BUT I'D LIKE
TO KNOW WHY YOUR COLOUR MAKES
YOU SO UNHAPPY BECAUSE IT
REMINDS ME OF THE SHINY INK I
USE FROM MY PEN, LIKE THE
DEEPEST NIGHT OF WATER IN
DREAMS, LIKE THE SOFTNESS OF
SHADOW.'"

Leon says IT MAKES ME THINK OF PIRATES
BECAUSE OF THEIR FLAG!

Nina says A BOWLER HAT FOR ME!

Leon says AND I SEE THE SKY AT NIGHT
WITH ALL ITS STARS!

Yetily says OH, WHAT TRUE POETS THESE
LITTLE MICE ARE.

Leon says EVEN THOUGH THE SKY AT NIGHT
SORT OF SCARES ME A LITTLE.

Yetily says MM.

Yetily continues reading ALSO, BLACK MAKES ALL THE OTHER
COLOURS SING!

The crow flies on a red surface.

Leon says WOW, THAT'S MY
FAVOURITE COLOUR!

Yetily reads "'IF YOU WERE WALKING THROUGH
A FIELD OF POPPIES, THEIR COLOUR
RED WOULD LOOK EVEN DEEPER, AND
UNDER YOUR EBONY WINGS DURING
THE HARVEST, THE GOLDEN WHEAT
WOULD SHINE MORE BRIGHTLY.'"
"'ACTUALLY, LOOK AROUND YOU
RIGHT NOW.'"
"THE BIG CROW TOOK A STEP
FORWARD AND LOOKED AT HIS
LIQUORICE-COLOURED FOOT STANDING
OUT FROM THE SHINING WHITE
SNOW."

Leon says LIQUORICE?
YOU MEAN, THE SWEET THAT'S ALL
BLACK?

Yetily says OH, YES!
IT'S SO GOOD.
ESPECIALLY WITH ICE CREAM!
(giggling)

Leon says YUM, YUM!

Yetily reads"'IT'S TRUE, AGAINST ALL THIS
WHITE, I STAND OUT, CROAK,
CROAK, CROAK' SHOUTED THE BIG
CROW, FLYING AWAY HAPPILY."

The mice say CROAK, CROAK, CROAK!
(giggling)

Nina says CROAK!

Yetily reads "HE GLIDED A LONG
TIME OVER THE SPOTLESS LANDSCAPE
AS THE POET, TAKING HIS TIME,
WALKED BACK HOME."
AND THERE YOU ARE, MY LITTLE
MICE.
MY STORY IS OVER FOR TODAY.

Nina says THAT WAS A NICE STORY,
YETILY.
THANKS TO THE POET, HE DOESN'T
WANT TO BE AN ISLAND BIRD
ANYMORE.

Yetily says MM-HMM, HE UNDERSTOOD HE WAS
ALREADY BEAUTIFUL.
HE NO LONGER NEEDED TO HAVE ALL
THOSE COLOURS.

Leon says HE'S BEAUTIFUL, THAT BLACK
CROW, BUT CAN I KEEP MY COLOURS
ALL THE SAME?

Yetily says WELL, SURE, LEON.
LET'S GO, LITTLE MICE.
IT'S TIME.

Nina says YETILY, CAN YOU MAKE US FLY
LIKE THE BIG CROW?

Leon says OH, YES!

Yetily says ALL RIGHT, LITTLE MICE!

Leon says HERE WE GO!

Yetily says READY FOR TAKE-OFF?

The mice say YEAH!
(giggling)

Yetily grabs them and says UPSY-DAISY!

(giggling and cheering)
Yetily carries them imitating the sound of an airplane.

(music plays)

The end credits roll.
