Narrator: "All the animals in Ponyville were very excited. Hoity Toity's mother, Mayor Mare, was coming to the town to celebrate her birthday. The animals chuffed up and down to get ready for the big day.

On the big day, Hoity Toity came to the library."

Hoity Toity: "Spike, I have decided to take my mother on a birthday picnic. I want to show her somewhere special."

Spike: "I can take you to Ponyville Valley, sir."

Narrator: "Tooted Spike quickly."

Hoity Toity: "That is a very good idea, Spike."

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity.

Later, Spike puffed proudly into the town hall with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. He was very excited. Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare were waiting in their best clothes. The stationmaster loaded the picnic baskets. And the biggest birthday cake Spike had ever seen. Spike smiled, but Mayor Mare wasn't smiling. She looked very stern. She made Spike feel nervous. Just then, Pipsqueak chuffed into the station."

Pipsqueak: "You'll have a wonderful time."

Narrator: "Peeped Pipsqueak. Spike stopped feeling nervous. This was going to be the best birthday picnic ever.

Spike whooshed and wheeshed through the countryside. Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle clattered and chattered. Everyone was happy.

Finally, they arrived at the beautiful Ponyville Valley. There were woods, and streams, and green fields. Spike was sure Mayor Mare would like this. It was the perfect place for a picnic.

Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare looked at the fields. But they didn't smile. The fields had just been plowed into thick brown mud."

Spike: "Fire and scales!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Hoity Toity: "We can't picnic here."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity sternly."

Hoity Toity: "You'll have to have another idea. But hurry up, my mother is getting very hungry."

Narrator: "Spike thought very, very hard, and then he set off.

Spike pumped his legs even harder to get to the other side of the town. He was puffing to the castle."

Spike: "This is my best idea yet."

Narrator: "Chuffed Spike.

At the castle station, Hoity Toity spoke to the stationmaster."

Hoity Toity: "Spike,"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "The castle is closed for redecoration and repairs. Please have another idea and be quick about it."

Narrator: "So Spike set off from the castle.

He rocked and he rolled. He huffed and he puffed. Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare were bounced and bumped. Spike went faster and faster. Trying to have another idea. Hoity Toity leaned out."

Hoity Toity: "Enough, Spike!"

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Stop!"

Narrator: "Spike huffed to a halt."

Hoity Toity: "Where are you taking us now?"

Spike: "I don't know."

Narrator: "Peeped Spike sadly."

Spike: "I've run out of ideas."

Hoity Toity: "Then we will have to cancel the birthday picnic."

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "It's too late. Lunchtime has passed and my mother wants to go home."

Narrator: "Spike hoped he have another idea before he got to the town hall.

But as he pulled in, not one idea had dropped into his head. Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare got off, and with a low toot, Spike chuffed sadly back to the library.

When Spike got back to the library, the other animals were waiting. They had heard that Spike's good ideas had gone wrong."

Spike: "Nothing went right."

Narrator: "Moaned Spike sadly."

Pipsqueak: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Peeped Pipsqueak cheerfully."

Pipsqueak: "I'm sure Mayor Mare enjoyed the cake."

Spike: "The cake!"

Narrator: "Gasped Spike."

Spike: "I left before they could unloaded. Now Mayor Mare won't be able to have her birthday cake!"

Narrator: "Spike let off a big whoosh of smoke."

Spike: "Maybe if I think hard enough,"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "Another idea will come."

Pipsqueak: "Of course it will."

Narrator: "Peeped Pipsqueak. Pipsqueak wanted to whistle cheerfully, but his whistle wasn't working. It was blocked with quarry dust."

Big Macintosh: "Blow harder, Pipsqueak, like this."

Narrator: "Said Big Macintosh. And he blew a long low note."

Rarity: "I find two toots better."

Narrator: "Chirped Rarity, and she gave two high toots."

Filthy Rich: "No, no, no. Slow and strong as always best."

Filthy Rich: "Tooted Filthy Rich."

Spike: "That's it!"

Narrator: "Spike toot-tooted."

Spike: "Our whistles!"

Narrator: "The other animals were puzzled. Spike beamed."

Spike: "I've have another idea!"

Narrator: "Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare were sitting sadly in the living room, when the stationmaster rang."

Stationmaster: "You are all to go to the town hall. Spike and the other animals have a special surprise."

Narrator: "When they arrived at the town hall, they could hardly believed their eyes. There were banners, and balloons, and fine food, and the birthday cake. Spike gave one toot. Then one after the other, the animals hooted and tooted. Whistled and blew "Happy Birthday to you". And for the first time all day, Mayor Mare smiled from ear to ear."

Mayor Mare: "This is the best birthday picnic ever!"

Narrator: "Smiled Mayor Mare."

Hoity Toity: "Spike,"

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "This is your best idea yet!"

Narrator: "Spike was delighted."
