Cherry Pig, Thunderbolt the puppet mouse and Beanbag Frog refuse to go to sleep! Luckily, clever Stella has a plan...Stella really wants to go to bed and have some rest, but her three rowdy bedtime companions - Cherry Pig, Thunderbolt the puppet mouse and Beanbag Frog - are having none of it. They are full of energy, jumping all around the place each claiming to be the World Champion of Staying Awake. But Stella is very good at thinking up ways to get them to sleep. After dazzling imaginary adventures across the sea, on a train and in a Star Ship Balloon we'll see who is really the Champion of Staying Awake.
