This is the story of Douglas, told with sound effects and illustrations of familiar settings. Douglas doesn’t like getting out of bed in the mornings and the story centres on the strange things that happen to him one day when he refuses to get out of bed. The strange events are linked to real, everyday events around him. This resource would be useful for storytelling, or class discussions about the noises we hear around us. It could also be used as a sequencing activity.

This Animated Tale is also available to use offline or on a computer with restricted access.
