Narrator: "Spike the Dragon wouldn't stop being a nuisance. Night after night, he kept the other animals awake."

Spike: "I'm tired of pushing buffaloes. I want to see the world."

Narrator: "The other animals didn't take much notice, for Spike was a little dragon with a long tongue.

But one night, Shining Armor came to the library. He was a kind unicorn and felt sorry for Spike."

Shining Armor: "I've got some changelings to take home tomorrow. If you take them instead of me, I'll push buffaloes in Ponyville."

Spike: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "That will be nice."

Narrator: "Next morning, Shining Armor and Spike asked their drivers, and when they said "Yes", Spike ran off happily to find changelings.

Now, the changelings are silly and noisy. They talk a lot and don't attend to what they are doing. And I'm sorry to say, they play tricks on an animal who is not used to them. Shining Armor know all about changelings. He warned Spike to be careful, but Spike was too excited to listen.

The shunter fastened the arms, and when the light changed, Spike was ready. The conductor blew his whistle."

Spike: "Peep! Peep!"

Narrator: "Answered Spike, and started off. But the changelings weren't ready."

Changelings: "Oh, oh, oh!"

Narrator: "They screamed."

Changelings: "Wait, Spike, wait."

Narrator: "But Spike wouldn't wait."

Spike: "Come on, come on."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Changelings: "All right, all right, don't fuss, all right, don't fuss."

Narrator: "Grumbled the changelings.

Spike began going faster and faster."

Spike: "Wheeeee!"

Narrator: "He whistled as he rushed through Filthy Rich's tunnel."

Spike: "Hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Called Spike. He was feeling very proud of himself. But the changelings grew crosser and crosser. At last Spike slowed down as he came to Big Macintosh's hill."

Spike's Driver: "Steady now, steady."

Narrator: "Warned the driver as they reached the top. He began to put on the brakes."

Spike: "We're stopping, we're stopping."

Narrator: "Called Spike."

Changelings: "No, no, no!"

Narrator: "Answered the changelings, bumping into each other."

Changelings: "Go on, go on!"

Narrator: "Before the driver could stop them, they had pushed Spike down the hill and were rattling and laughing behind him.

Poor Spike tried hard to stop them from making him go too fast."

Spike: "Stop pushing, stop pushing!"

Narrator: "He hissed. But the changelings took no notice."

Changelings: "Go on, go on!"

Narrator: "They giggled in their silly way."

Spike: "There's the station. Oh dear, what shall I do?"

Narrator: "He cried. They rattled straight through and swerved into the goods yard. Spike shut his eyes."

Spike: "I must stop!"

Narrator: "When he opened his eyes, he saw he had stopped just in front of the buffers. There watching him was Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "What are you doing here, Spike?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Spike: "I've brought Shining Armor's changelings."

Narrator: "Spike answered."

Hoity Toity: "Why did you come so fast?"

Spike: "I didn't mean to. I was pushed."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Hoity Toity: "You've got a lot to learn about changelings, Spike. After pushing them about here for a few weeks, you'll know almost as much about them as Shining Armor. Then you'll be a Really Useful Dragon."
