Billy and Splodge are in a spaceship visiting lots of colourful planets. What will they discover? Watch and find out!

Story by Kim Ashmore and Sue Clarke | Animation by Cambridge English Online


Some children in Turkey loved the story of 'Our colourful world' and they drew pictures of their 'Friend from outer space'. Have a look at the online exhibition here.

There are also some great videos of their pictures which a Turkish TV company made. Have a look and let us know what you think. They're fantastic, aren't they?

Good story.

I like it!

Our planet is beautiful and colourful. And the green of trees is my favourite love!

do you know where I can chat with kids?

Hi QueenDrumAlbatross,
You can leave a comment for another member in the comment box on any page.  
Please try to leave a comment which is connected with that page. For example if you are writing on Your turn music
you could ask "Who is your favourite singer?"
I hope that helps.

Best wishes,
LearnEnglish Kids team
