Bertie Valentine.

Hello this is Natasha and Im dropping by to tell you the true storynory of Prince Bertie the Frogs Valentines Day.

Have you heard about Valentines Day

Its a very special day. Every year on the 14th of February you send cards to people you love and care about.

And if there is someone you have been secretly admiring you can send them a card and not say who it is from.

That sounds terribly mysterious and exciting.

 



 

Anyway a few days ago I was going for a walk and I was thinking about who I might send a Valentines Card to this year when I walked past the pond where Prince Bertie the frog lives with all his friends.

And I saw Bertie sitting there looking very sad.

Tim the Tadpole was trying to cheer him up.

Lets go for a walk Bertiesaid Tim.

You havent got any legs Timsaid Bertie.

Lets play hopscotch.

Nosnapped Bertie.

Or skipping ….

Bertie looked blankly at his legless little friend as if he were a rather silly tadpole - which of course he was.

Cmon Bertiesaid Colin the Grumpy Carp Theres nothing like a good old moan to improve everybodys mood. One two three….ugggggggg

When I saw how my friend Bertie looked I felt rather sorry for him and I knelt down by the edge of the pond. Why so sadI asked.

Bertie blushed a shade of deepest green and got all shy. He sighed a bit and at length he said .Well let me tell you a story and it will all become clear.

As his story was rather short - Ill just tell it to you quickly. Once upon time there was a handsome brave and gallant prince who was engaged to be married to a beautiful princess. Then one day a wicked queen got rather cross and shouted out a magic spell that turned him into a frog. For a whole year he sat on aLilly leaf and cried big fat tears but then on a bright wintry day his princess came wondering by the pond. She saw the sad little creature picked him up in her hand and kissed him. For you see although he was a frog he was still terribly handsome and she just couldnt resist his charms. No sooner had she kissed him than he turned back into a prince and they got married and lived happily ever after. THE END.

When I heard the story I knew what Bertie meant. He was hoping for a Valentines day kiss from the lovely Princess Beatrice for that would turn him back into a prince. But Colin the Carp was far from convinced.

Boringhe said.Fairy tales always end in soppy kisses and happy ever after - but thats because they are made up. If you ask me - which nobody ever does around this pond - in Real Life no self-respecting princess would kiss an ugly little frog not if even if you gave her a whole palace made of gold and filled to the top of its towers with pearls frilly dresses diamond tiaras and Girls AloudCDs not even then could she bring herself to kiss Bertie.

Just then Sadie the Swan glided across the pond. Oh yes she couldshe said. Princesses are always on the look out for frogs to kiss…Its their royal duty. We must lure the Lovely Princess Beatrice to walk past he pond on Valentines Day when shes in her most dreamy and romantic mood and shes sure to kiss Bertie because being a true princess shell just know that really hes a handsome prince under a magic spell.

So all the pond life thought very hard about how to get The Lovely Princess Beatrice to walk past the pond and see Bertie. They thought and thought…and Tim was thinking so hard he fell over backwards.

And then Sadie came up with a clever plan — because Sadie knows all about Valentines Day and usually gets dozens of cards from swans all over the world.

I knowshe said. Well ask Natasha to send an announcement to The Palace Radio Station. Princess Beatrice will hear it shell know it was meant for her and shell come down to the pond plant kiss on Bertie and they will both live happily ever after.

Gosh I say thats really jolly clever Sadiesaid Bertie.

And so it was done.

On Valentines day the Royal DJ was only playing romantic soppy love songs and in between records he was reading out even gooier Valentines messages. It was all rather boring really but everyone in the palace was listening out just in case they heard a message that was meant for them.

Eventually he read out the lines for Princess Beatrice - but because it was a Valentines message and meant to be sort of secret it didnt actually mention any names. The DJ purred.

Greetings Royal pop-pickers. heres a message to get young hearts beating - not arf. if you go down to the palace pond today only kiss a frog and your every wish will come true - all right stay bright. And now heres a cool chart-topper from years gone by - Save All Your kisses for Me by the Brother Hood of Man.

All the girls who lived in the palace and in the houses near by heard the message on the palace radio and each one of them wondered who would be the lucky girl who found the right frog to kiss and whose every wish would come true. And the same thought popped through the heads of quite a few of them. I wonder if maybe just maybe it might be me.Even I thought the same for a moment - and then I remembered that Im not a true princess just Berties special story teller and so my wishes wouldnt come true even if I did kiss him. So I decided not to after all.

On Valentines Day His Royal Highness Prince Bertie the Frog peeked out from behind his lilly pad and looked at his reflection in the pond. His skin was a nice shiny shade of green. He sipped up some water and swilled away all the traces of green slime from around his mouth. It was apity that he he couldnt do anything about the bumps on his head and back but all the same he was certain that if the Lovely Princess Beatrice felt like kissing a frog that morning it might as well be him.

The mood on the pond was terribly romantic. He could see that Sadie had already received a sackful of Valentine cards.

Tim had received one - from his mum.

And Colin had received one as well from Chloe Carp and he was swimming around in quite an excited way - but actually that card was from Bertie playing a joke on him.

Bertie couldnt wait for the lovely Princess Beatrice to come down and kiss him.

So he hopped up onto the bank of the pond and looked out across to the Palace.

Soon a small girl came along and immediately she saw bertie she cooed Oooh Look Nanny a frog let me kiss him quick and all my wishes will come true.Bertie tried to hop away as fast as he could but the girls brother caught him and held Bertie up to his sisters lips.

Go on nowsaid the boy - who was really rather horrid - kissy kissy

Oooohsaid the girl scrunching up her face Hes so shiny and green - quite quite the ugliest little creature I ever did see - but Im sure that hell turn into a prince if I kiss him so I suppose I had just better get it over withAnd she closed her eyes and kissed Bertie. Bertie thought the kiss was perfectly horrible and he wriggled and wriggled trying to escape but the boy thought it was hilarious and he put Bertie in his satchel and took him to school. In the play ground the girls queued up and paid the boy with their pocket money or toffee apples orchewie sweets and each one of them kissed Bertie to see if he would turn into a prince for them and each one of them was disappointed that nothing happened - because none of them was a true princess. Some of them burst into tears.

It was a very miserable Bertie who eventually hopped back to the pond after receiving more kisses than he could count.

He was about to dive into the slimy green water when he saw Princess Beatrice. She was walking down to the pond looking for a frog to kiss - for - when she heard the message on the radio she suspected that her wicked step mother might have turned her beloved Prince Bertie into a frog - because she hadnt seen or heard from him for quite a while now - and she knew that she must find him and kiss him. Bertie became ever so excited and started to hop up and down  but Beatrice didnt see him. Instead she spotted Old Tommy Frog Tim the tadpoles grandfather whod been sent down to check that Tim had received his card.

Beatrice my darlingBertie tried to cry out - but the only sound that came out of his mouth was a big croak.

And Princess Beatrice was so lost in her thoughts that she didnt even hear his croaking.

Instead she knelt down and gave old grandfather Tommy a peck on the bump of his head. He got the shock of his ancient life and dived straight back into the pond.

I wish that Prince Bertie would come home soonsaid Beatrice before adding hmmm I .m not sure that I really like kissing frogs but I suppose its my royal duty once in a while. And then she turned around and headed straight back to the palace.

And Bertie felt a bit sad about that. But then he cheered up…because he knew the lovely Princess Beatrice still loved him and was thinking about him on Valentines Day and wishing that he would come home.

And as Bertie went to sleep under his lilly he could see Colin swimming around looking at his card and saying I wonder who Chloe Carp is

And thats the true storynory of Berties Valentines Day.

I hope you have a great day.
