Drop the shrinking cap, Grandpa!
Catch me if you can!
No, be careful!
There you are, Grandpa, finished!
It's wonderful! Looks just like Sunnysands.
'Our town is called Sunnysands
'because it's always sunny, and it's by the sea.
'We love spending time at our beach hut on the beach.
'And you can see the lighthouse from my bedroom.
'This is Mum and Dad's bike shop,
'and Miss Smiley's cafe,
'which serves the best sundaes in the world!
'There's Mr Whoops' shop, where you can buy anything and everything.
'Everyone loves Sunnysands, and today, all of Mum and Dad's friends
'had sent cards for their wedding anniversary.'
ALL: Happy anniversary!
What do you think, do you like it?
Thank you! What a lovely surprise!
Speaking of surprises...
Oh, my goodness!
Oh! It's perfect!
I'll treasure it!
I'm going to wear it all the time!
I'll never take it off. Never, never, never!
'Dad had just given Mum something to treasure forever.
'Dad went to the bike shop.'
See you later!
'And Mum went into the garden to pick some flowers.
'She had a new hobby. Flower arranging.'
'Mum's always taking up new hobbies.
'One week it's karate, then it's salsa dancing,
'then cake decorating...
# Oo-o-o-o-o-oh! #
'So Mum was picking flowers,
My necklace! Oh, it's gone!
Oh no, it didn't...!
It couldn't have!
Mum, got my towel,
got my swimming costume, time to go!
'Jemima was going to her first diving lesson.'
Look, I've even dressed Peter in his diving outfit.
'Peter was one of Jemima's favourite dolls.
'Mum was looking worried.'
What's the matter, Mum?
I can't find my lovely necklace. It must have fallen in the pond.
Oh, Mum! You promised Dad you'd never take it off!
Don't worry. I'll find it for you!
Oh, no, Grandpa, you mustn't!
I don't want you ending up in the pond.
Well, we'll have to look later.
What am I going to tell Dad? Oh, how silly of me to lose it!
Well, Jason, it seems that someone is going to have to dive into that pond
and find the necklace.
'I knew what Grandpa was thinking!'
And what is it that gets us out of all kinds of trouble, eh?
My shrinking cap!
'I'm the only one who knows about Grandpa's magic cap,
'when he puts it on, he shrinks!
'Like this, and this, and this!
'Nobody else is allowed to see him.
'He gets up to all kinds of mischief.
'He can drive my toy car,
'he can fly my toy plane.
'Oh, yes. When Grandpa's wearing his shrinking cap
'anything he gets into, or onto, will go!
'He can get into all sorts of very small places,
'like in the teapot,
'on the top shelf,
'in Beowulf's basket,
'under the floorboards,
'and sometimes, he likes to get into my pocket.'
-I don't know what I'd do without my cap!
-Neither do I!
Pass me Peter. If I'm going diving for treasure,
I'm going to need a wetsuit.
'I knew there was no stopping Grandpa, so I picked up Peter,
'but then the doorbell went!'
Oh, no! Who could that be?
It was Great Aunt Loretta.
I've come to cook a lovely meal for Mum and Dad's anniversary!
But it looks like I need to clear up a bit, first!
What a mess!
'Oh, yes. Grandpa's sister had arrived.
'She makes really weird food.
'Like sausage with sardine sauce.
'And she drinks green gloop.
'And she's always stubbing her toe.
'We have a pack of peas in the freezer that we always put on it.'
'And she's often like this.'
'Or, like this.'
'And she makes Grandpa feel like this.'
Look at all this muck!
And I'll have that old thing, too!
It's going in the bin!
I don't know why you're so attached to it, you've had it forever!
-Please, Aunt Loretta!
It's a dirty, smelly old cap!
And THAT is the right place for it!
'This was a disaster!
'But luckily, Grandpa had a plan.'
I'll get the diving gear off Peter, you get the cap.
Now, this is what you'll do...
-Great Aunt Loretta?
-Y-Y-Yes, what is it?
Oooh, these onions are making me cry!
Dad gave Mum a necklace for her anniversary, but she lost it.
What? Already?! Oh, typical!
I think it might have got swept up and put into the bin.
Well, you better have a look then, hadn't you?
'Great Aunt Loretta was so busy blowing her nose
'that she forgot about Grandpa's cap, and I was able to rescue it!'
Well done, Jason! I'm ready!
Once I'm small, these will just about fit me.
-Oi, Jason Mason!
-Not now, Grandpa!
I've had to clear all this up off the floor!
Oh, I see,
you fished it out the bin, did you?
-What are you doing? Give it back!
-It's not yours, it's Grandpa's!
It's a dirty old...
My Grandpa gave me that cap!
Well, now it's going in the dustbin, outside!
'We couldn't let this happen!'
'Luckily, Grandpa had an idea.'
I saw something move inside the bag!
It must be a mouse!
Oooh, oooh, call me when you've got rid of it!
'I quickly got the cap out of the bin and handed it to Grandpa.'
-I'm going swimming!
'Grandpa was off!
'Now you know what he's like when he shrinks, he just wants to have fun.
'He zoomed along the floor, climbed the table leg,
'then ran along the shelf.'
Grandpa, quick, get the diving suit on!
'Soon Grandpa was dressed in Peter's diving clothes
'and was ready to jump.
'Good news was that Grandpa had finally got into the pond.
'The bad news was Dad had just come home!'
Would you believe, I've had a puncture.
'I didn't want Dad to spot Grandpa's snorkel.'
Don't come out yet, Grandpa!
What are you doing, Jason?
-Are Mum and Jemima back yet?
Good. That gives me time to fix this.
'Dad's always mending things.
'Because he runs the bike shop in town.
'He fixes tyres,
'He's really good at fixing bikes.'
Where's Grandpa? Gone for a lie-down, has he?
'Grandpa was still under the water.
'He couldn't stay there much longer,
'I needed to get Dad out of the garden. Then I remembered!'
Dad, Great Aunt Loretta is upstairs, and really upset.
Oh, no. Why?
-She thought there was a mouse in the rubbish.
-I'll go up and see her.
It's all right, you can come out now.
Hurry, Grandpa! Quick as you can!
'Grandpa got back into his own clothes,
'while Dad was upstairs with Great Aunt Loretta.
'He ran in, took his cap off, and was back to normal.
'Meanwhile, I put Peter's wetsuit back on.'
-Did you find it, Grandpa?
-I couldn't have done it without you, though!
-I nearly did a dive!
-Well done, Jemima!
I'm going to try and find my necklace.
No need! I said we'd find it and we did!
In the pond!
You shouldn't have, oh, thank you!
Peter's all wet!
Jason, I suppose you're going to tell me HE dived for the necklace?
'Later, we all sat down
'to eat Great Aunt Loretta's surprise anniversary meal.
'Fried egg and banana pasta, with raw onion sprinkles.'
Come on, eat up!
Still wearing your necklace, then?
Oh, yes! To treasure forever!
Bit like this, eh, Jase?
