One morning in the land of cookie where everyone eats cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The king woke up and said, Oh, I want to make a big cookie. A big big cookie. So we called in this cookie baking chefs. And he said every day you make me the finest cookies in the land. You make me chocolates, cookies, peanut butter, cookies, strawberry, banana, peach, apple, but today I want you to make me a big cookie. I mean big, big, big. I want you to make me the biggest cookie anyone has ever seen before the cookie chef's answer. They sang a little song. The king wants a big big cookie, a big big cookie.
Unknown Speaker 12:03
Then the king's expert cookie makers huddled together and they whispered Whisper, whisper, whisper whisper. And then they turned to the king. And they said, Yes, Your Majesty. We can make you a big cookie with our new machine, the big cookie machine. But we will need lots of ingredients. The king said, Whatever you need, just name it. Well, we're going to need all the wheat from the fields ground up to make flour, all the eggs from all the hens in the kingdom, all the honey from all the bees in the kingdom and all the milk from all the cows in the kingdom. The King said no judge be done. The next day, there were horse drawn carts lined up outside the castle bringing all the ingredients for the big cookie machine. One by one the chef's put the ingredients into the machine and they sang a song as they did their work. Shake, shake, shake in the power. Shake, shake, shake in the flour. Shake, shake, shake in the flour for the big big cookie. Crack crack, crack the a crack crack, crack the a crack crack crack da for the big big cookie. Pour pour pour in the milk.

Turn, turn, turn that crank, turn, turn, turn that crank, turn, turn, turn that crank for the big big cookie. Ring, ring ring the bell. Ring Ring Ring that bell ring ring ring that bell. Now that cookie is out popped a really big cookie. Big big cookie. It was the biggest cookie anyone had ever seen. Everyone cheered yay. The smell of that freshly baked cookie was so powerful and so magical that it drifted up into the sky and was caught by the wind and the wind carried it far away to the land of the giants. In the land of the giants. That giant King was sitting in his castle with a grouchy look on his face. He was grouchy because he had never had a cookie that was big enough for him to eat. Just then the delicious smell of the big big cookie drifted in the window of his castle. The giant King said, smell a big cookie. He got up and walked out of the castle. He followed the smell of that cookie with his big footsteps shaking the ground Boom, boom, boom, across the deserts. Boom, boom, boom through the forests. Boom, boom, boom over the mountains and through the jungles. As the giant King got closer, he could hear the chef singing their song. The king wants a big cookie, a big, big cookie. Finally, he arrived at the land of cookie, or the giant cookie had just popped out of the big cookie machine. All the people were gathered around the cookie, and the cookie King was wondering to himself, what are we going to do with this big cookie? It's much too big for anyone to eat. Just then the giant King walked up his giant feet, making big booming sounds and shaking the ground. He reached down and scooped up the big cookie with one hand, he smelled it. And then he aided in one bite. Then something magical happened. The giant King's grouchy face got a big smile. Because he had finally had a cookie that was big enough for him to eat. All the people cheered. And the king of the land of Cook, he declared that they would make a big, big cookie every year on that day. So the giant king would never be grouchy again. The end.
