Narrator: "It was a baking hot summer in Ponyville. The sun was shining brightly. Cranky and Braeburn were taking children to the seaside. It was a wonderful job. All the animals liked seeing the children's happy faces, and they loved hearing them cheer when they saw the sea.

Spike wished he was taking children to the seaside. But Spike was taking a big tank of raspberry syrup to the ice cream factory.

Down on the beach, it was very hot, and the ice cream lady had run out of ice cream.

So when Spike arrived at the ice cream factory, the factory manager was waiting for him."

Factory Manager: "We have to make lots more ice cream."

Narrator: "He cried."

Factory Manager: "You must go and get the cream, the chocolate and the strawberries."

Narrator: "Spike was disappointed. He had lots to collect, and he wanted to take children to the seaside."

Spike's Driver: "If we get everything in time,"

Narrator: "Said Spike's driver."

Spike's Driver: "Then we can still take some children."

Narrator: "So Spike rushed to the dairy. He collected the cream, and he puffed away quickly.

Next, Spike had to collect some strawberries. So he raced through the countryside to Igneous Rock Pie's.

Then Spike had to stop for Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Out of the way!"

Narrator: "Snorted Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Passenger buffaloes coming through!"

Narrator: "Cranky's buffaloes had lots of laughing children. They were going to the seaside."

Spike: "Why does Cranky get to take the children?"

Narrator: "Moaned Spike. At last the crossing was clear, and Spike puffed away."

Spike: "If I'm quick, I can still take some of the children."

Narrator: "He puffed. So Spike raced as fast as he could.

Soon, Spike arrived at Igneous Rock Pie's."

Spike: "Please be quick."

Narrator: "Spike panted. The farm workers loaded his wagon. Before long, it was filled with plump, ripe strawberries."

Spike: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Spike chuffed, and he raced away.

Next, he had to go to the chocolate factory. Spike hurried through the baking sun."

Spike: "I've still got time to take some children to the seaside."

Narrator: "He panted. Spike puffed faster and faster. His feet ran, and his legs pumped. But he puffed so fast, the signalman didn't change the points in time.

Spike raced down the wrong path."

Spike: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike. Spike had to reverse slowly and carefully back to the points. Then he had to wait while Braeburn went past. Braeburn was taking more children to the seaside. They were having a wonderful time."

Spike: "Everyone gets to take the children except me!"

Narrator: "Moaned Spike. At last the signalman changed the points. Spike reversed back onto the path. And soon, he was on his way once again.

When Spike arrived at the chocolate factory, it was getting late."

Spike: "Hurry up."

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Spike: "If I'm quick, I might still get to take some children."

Narrator: "The workmen loaded Spike's wagon as fast as they could. It was soon filled with heaps of chocolatey cocoa powder. Spike was ready to go. But the shunters hadn't released the brakes on the wagons. Spike pulled as hard as he could, but the wagons wouldn't move."

Spike: "I have to hurry!"

Narrator: "Puffed Spike. He heaved, he huffed and he puffed, and he heaved so hard, the coupling broke! Spike shot forward! Cocoa powder flew everywhere!"

Spike: "Now I'll never get to take the children."

Narrator: "Puffed Spike.

After a long time, Spike's wagons were ready. The yard manager had release the brakes, and Spike chuffed carefully out of the yard.

Finally the path turned left pass the old church.

Spike arrived at the ice cream factory. He thought his job was nearly done, but he was wrong. The factory manager was waiting for him."

Factory Manager: "The ice cream will soon be ready."

Narrator: "He said."

Factory Manager: "You must take it to the seaside for me."

Narrator: "Spike was very disappointed. He wished he could take children to the seaside instead. He wanted to hear them cheer when they saw the sea.

Spike puffed along the coast to the seaside."

Spike: "I wish I was taking the children."

Narrator: "Sighed Spike.

Pipsqueak was waiting at the seaside station, and so were lots of children. They all cheered as Spike pulled into the station. Spike was surprised."

Spike: "Why are the children cheering?"

Narrator: "Puffed Thomas."

Pipsqueak: "They're cheering for you."

Narrator: "Laughed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "They've been waiting for the ice cream."

Narrator: "The children were delighted to see Spike, and delighted to eat the ice cream. Spike loved seeing the children laugh and cheer. Hoity Toity was waiting with the children."

Hoity Toity: "Today you have worked extra hard."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "You are a really useful dragon."

Spike: "Delivering ice cream is a fun job after all!"

Narrator: "Puffed Spike. He was very happy."
