s ’ y l l Mi World Episode two

Milly and the great thunderstorm

Oh dear, if the water keeps rising it will flood the glade!

The thunderstorm is over but the big oak tree where lots of little creatures used to live is still blocking the river.

The water... the river water is coming... quick, run!

Oh no... where shall we go...?

What are you doing?

Quick, quick... My house...

The tree slows down the water flow and a small lake forms.

Billy wants to help.

The water is flooding the fishermen’s village, help me move the oak tree!

It is no use, even a thousand dragonflies could not budge it. Billy pushes, but the tree is too heavy.

Let's ask George the beaver for help, he knows about trees...

What shall we do then?

Where is the dam?

Look! There is a light behind the waterfall... It has been destroyed! The current has swept it away!

Let's go and see what it is! Milly and Billy go to look for the beavers who live in the dam near the waterfall.

Poor beavers, they have lost their home... Where can they be sheltering?

Come on!

Look... there is the light again! Let's go and see what it is...

Wait for me... What can be behind all that water?

‌ there is a big cave!

But there is nobody here‌

What are you doing here? It has stopped raining outside! George, my friend!

Milly... Billy...

Just a few more steps and ... what a surprise!

The little ones are bored and want to go outside, but there is nothing to do our there and...

We are waiting for the current of the river to slow down so we can build a new dam...

I am tired of the darkness...

I am hungry for fresh wood...

I want to go outside... It is not much fun living in the cave.

That is not true, there is lots to do outside. Listen: zzz zzz zzz... Luckily Milly has an idea!


Hurrah! Let's go!


we go!!! Great!

Now it is time to go outdoors!

Look, the oak tree, here we are!

Mmm... delicious!

Fresh wood pulp... tasty!

Ripe bark, nice and wet, my favourite! The river is still flowing fast, but everyone is happy.

The beavers reach the tree that has fallen across the river and set to work.

Henrietta, Henry... watch out!

There, you are safe now!


Ooh... what fun!

Help... I don't want to fall in the water!!!

Little by little, the oak tree is starting to change.

I like singing while I am fishing, casting my line from this bridge so fine...

Knit one purl one, knit one, purl one...

I will make a pizza!

And I will squeeze some fresh orange juice!

The bridge is finished and beautifully decorated. It is wonderful, there is room for everyone. Such a nice place deserves a big party.

Even nicer than a fresh birch twig! Nice, isn't it?

Milly's pizza is very big ...

and there is enough for everyone.
