The shrinking cap!
Catch me if you can!
No! Be careful!
Grandpa In My Pocket.
Watch it go, Jason.
'It was the school holidays and we were playing marbles.'
Not bad, but we can make it go even faster. We need the right marble.
-I'll buy some more today.
-I'll make sure you get good ones.
A shooter, a few pea-wees, a couple of rainbows and a spiral corkscrew!
'Miss Smiley was about to arrive.
'On Sundays she looked after a boy called Troy.
'Today was one of those days.
'She was taking us to spend our pocket money.'
-I wonder what Troy'll choose?
'Yes, this was the day we went to buy...'
You didn't say Miss Smiley was bringing Troy.
'Troy lives next door. He's always inviting himself round to play.
'He's very spoilt and very rude.
-'He does this...'
I want it. No, me! Give it HERE!
BUT I WANT TO PLAY WITH IT!
'And this... And he makes Grandpa say...'
I'd like to teach him some manners.
If I come, maybe I can do just that.
Not the shrinking cap!
Catch me if you can!
'When Grandpa shrinks, he gets up to magical things.
'He can get into my car and make it go.
'Not the plane, Grandpa!
'He can fly off in my plane.
'Or he can just run for all he's worth.
'Once his cap's on, there's no stopping him.
'I'm the only person who knows. Nobody else is allowed see him.
'Suddenly the doorbell rang. I had no idea where Grandpa could be.'
-I suppose Grandpa's gone for a lie-down?
-COME ON! I want to go buy a toy!
-You'll need your jacket, Jason.
'Off we went, me, Miss Smiley and Troy to Mr Whoops' shop,
'my favourite place in Sunnysands.
'It's called Sunnysands because it's always sunny and it's by the sea.
'We love spending time at our beach hut on the beach.
'You can see the lighthouse from my bedroom.
'This is Mum and Dad's bike shop.
'Here's Miss Smiley's cafe, which serves the best ice cream sundaes.
'Here's where you can buy anything and everything.
'I wish Grandpa had come with us.
'Maybe he had because, as you know, Grandpa can hide anywhere.
'Mr Whoops is called that because he's always having little accidents.
'He drops things.
-'He falls over things.'
-'He falls off things.'
'He even trips over his own feet.'
-'Every time he knocks something over, he goes...'
Show us your bestest, most expensivest toy then.
'I found a jar of marbles. I looked at all the bright, swirly colours.
-'I was trying to remember which ones Grandpa wanted, when...'
'Grandpa was hiding in my pocket all the time and now he was off.
'He loved Mr Whoops' shop.
'Luckily, Troy and Miss Smiley were looking at toys, so didn't notice.
'He was having a GREAT time leaping from shelf to shelf.'
'I was really worried that they'd see him any minute.'
'You know Grandpa - when he's got an idea, there's no stopping him.'
HIS FEET 'PLAY' A BOUNCY TUNE
Was that you playing, Jason?
'Of course, I had to PRETEND it was me.'
-Jason wants a Xylophone! Jason wants a Xylophone!
-No, I want marbles.
-Who's been eating MY porridge?
-Ssssh! 'I grabbed the bear to get Grandpa,
-'but he'd already gone.'
-Jason wants a teddy! Jason wants a teddy!
No, I want marbles!
'I looked around for Grandpa and suddenly I saw him.'
# Oooh-diddy-diddy diddle-dee-diddle. #
-'Grandpa lost his balance and bumped into a big jigsaw.'
'Now Mr Whoops was hurt and Grandpa had disappeared.'
'Miss Smiley took Mr Whoops out the back to see to his head.
'I went to find Grandpa, but I didn't find him - I found...
'THESE! Grandpa's clothes.
'This meant he was running about in his pants!
'I put them in my pocket
'and just as I thought it couldn't get any worse, I saw him!'
Grandpa! What are you doing?
I've always fancied playing the bagpipes.
HE PLAYS A TUNE
What's that noise? It's that doll! How does it work?
Is it remote-controlled? It must have a computer inside it.
Let's have a look under its funny skirt.
Hey, watch it, laddie!
-'Grandpa had gone too far.'
-I want the little doll in the skirt!
-You want what, dear?
-He must mean the Scottish dolls.
No, not that one, I want the one that talks.
-He's got such a lively imagination.
-NO! I WANT THAT ONE!
-AND I WANT IT NOW!
-'Before I knew it, Grandpa was being wrapped up.
'I needed a rescue plan - fast.'
-And Jason would like a jar of marbles.
-I've changed my mind.
-I'd like a Scottish doll too, please.
'Troy had got Grandpa out of his box and was staring at him.
'Surely Grandpa would keep quiet. But he didn't!'
Hello again, laddie.
'I decided to get my doll out, too.'
Your doll is rubbish! It doesn't do anything.
# NA-NA-NA-NA-NA! # Your doll is rubbish.
'I needed to swap the dolls, but how?'
I want a chocolate milkshake with a double chocolate muffin
AND chocolate sauce!
You need to learn some manners.
I want this, I want that, tut-tut! Where are the pleases and thank-yous?
And you shouldn't be so rude to your wee friend there, either.
Now, you go over to Miss Smiley and ask nicely.
Have fresh orange juice and fruit salad. You eat too much chocolate!
-I did enjoy that.
-'With Troy's back turned, this was my only chance.'
-That's enough, time to swap you.
You're going back in my pocket with your clothes.
-He does talk, honest, Miss Smiley.
-I'm sure, dear.
-It knows my name!
Go on, say something. I mean, PLEASE say something.
I expect Jason was having a little joke putting on funny voices.
It talked to me, I'm sure it did. Thanks for taking me to the shop.
It was really kind of you.
'I was really pleased to get back home.
'I ran in ahead of Troy and Miss Smiley and quickly put Grandpa down.
'He was soon back to his normal' size.
We did it, Jason - we taught Troy some manners.
-Team work, laddie!
-Aye, team work.
Smart work there, Jason, buying that other doll.
'Grandpa opened his treasure chest where he keeps all sorts of things
'he had when he was a boy.'
-I've just remembered...I had these.
Hello, Grandpa. Troy needs his tea. He's been such a sweet boy today.
-I wish you'd seen him. Bye.
