Please Ollie, Take The Children to the Seaside!

special clean and polish, and now his red paint shone and sparkled.

middle of the town.
year Ollie takes lots of children to the seaside for the day, and today is that
special day. "I do love going to the seaside," said Ollie to his best
friend Bertie who stood beside him, but Bertie only sniffed and turned his
Ollie felt sorry for his friend, because he would have liked to have had his
company on the long journey, and together they could have watched the seagulls
as they played high up in the blue sky, and listened to the children, as they
romped on the beach.
Beep! Beep! Went Ollies Horn!
Yesterday, after Ollie had finished taking the people around
the town, Sam and Molly had given him a spring-clean, and when they had
finished, his chrome shone, his windows gleamed, and even his big wheels
The hands on the round clock on the garage wall, pointed to nine o' clock and
Fred, Ollie's driver got into his seat, and Bill the conductor jumped onto the
platform. Ting, went Ollie's bell, and laughing, Fred started the engine.
Down the road went Ollie, his big black tyres singing as they rolled towards
the school. Beep beep went Ollie's horn, telling the children that he was on
Ollie pulled up by the school gates. All the children were in a long line, with
their teacher standing at the front. She had a paper with all the children's
names on it, and as she read them out, on-by-one, the children were helped by
The happy children sang as they sped along!
When all the children had sat down, Bill rang the bell, and
Ollie trundled along the road, passed the school, and out into the green
countryside. He ran passed the field where black and white cows chewed the
tender grass. Through the woods, where branches met in an arch over Ollie's
roof. Through villages,where the people gaily waved, and along lanes where
little rabbits played.
The happy children sang as they sped along, their teacher waving her arms
in time to the music, and Bill pretending to be a drum, beating out the rhythm
of the song, with a stick on Ollie's wooden floor.
When they were halfway to the seaside, Fred turned Ollie to a little cafe, and
when Ollie had stopped, all the children jumped out to buy cool drinks,
saltycrisps and ice cream.
Ollie was pleased to have stopped, because his engine hissed and bubbled, and
his big black tyres were aching. Fred and Bill, leaned against Ollie's side,
sipping tea from paper cups. They were pleased to have a rest as well.
When Ollie's engine had cooled down, and all the children were inside again,
Ollie set off on the second half of the journey. As they got nearer the
seaside, Ollie could smell the cool salt air blowing from the coast. Up and
down the hills they went, until at last, Ollie saw the blue sea water
glistening in the distance.
The children squealed with great delight. They thought about all the sand
castles that they were going to build, and all the games that they would play
on the golden beach.
He felt lonely for his friend Bertie.
Through the seaside town Ollie sped, passing all the people
out walking and shopping, until they reached the beach. The children climbed
out clutching buckets and spades shouting, "thank you ,Ollie!" as
they raced over the beach and down to the edge of the sea.
Ollie stood near the beach, amongst all the buses and coaches, but he felt
lonely for his friend Bertie. All the other buses seemed to have come in
groups, and they chatted to each other, not taking any notice of poor Ollie.
Ollie sighed, a gentle hiss of steam escaping from his hot radiator.
It's lovely to see you!
As Ollie stood there all alone, listening to the laughter of
the children coming from the beach, he thought he heard the familiar sound of
his friend's engine. He looked up, and sure enough, coming towards him was
Bertie's jolly face.
"You took some catching up, Ollie!" wheezed his friend, as he
trundled to a spot beside Ollie, "it is lovely to see you," said
Ollie, "but how did you manage to come?" "There were more
children than the teacher thought," Bertie replied, and they both giggled,
making their windows rattle.
two friends had a lovely day, they felt the fresh salt air brushing over their
roofs, and they watched the seagulls swooping over-head, and saw the little
waves dancing patterns over the blue sea.
travelled together, back to the town that evening, and when Sam put out the
light in the big garage, Ollie went to sleep, happy that his friend had shared
his big day out.
