-Not the shrinking cap, Grandpa!
Catch me if you can!
Come down, Grandpa!
'Today I was really excited because we had some special guests staying.
'They were famous dancers called Demi and Danny Delight.
'And tonight they were going to perform at Miss Smiley's cafe.
'I was watching them practising in the sitting room.'
-Oh, sorry! My fault. I'm just hungry.
But we've got to keep going.
We have to be perfect for tonight's show!
'And the show was called Dancing With Delight.
'Everyone was out except Grandpa and guess who was making breakfast?
-'Great Aunt Loretta.'
-I can dance just as well as them two, you know.
Oh, you can, can you?
-What are you doing?
-I'm giving them a whole new breakfast experience.
I am making scrambled egg with chocolate chips
-and toothpaste on toast.
-What?! You're making what?
-You can't give that to our guests.
-Oh, yes, I can.
What if it makes them ill? They won't be able to perform their show.
It won't make them ill.
They'll love it! It's a time-saving device, you see.
They can eat their breakfast
and clean their teeth all at the same time.
-Demi and Danny are really hungry. Is everything ready?
Great Aunt Loretta is planning to give them scrambled eggs with
chocolate chips and toothpaste on toast for breakfast.
-And I won't allow it.
-Won't allow it? Won't allow it?
May I remind you I am in charge of breakfast today.
Go on, out, go along! All of you, And you, Wulfy.
I need some peace to create.
And you're not coming back until I say so.
This is a disaster, Elsie.
If Demi and Danny Delight eat Great Aunt Loretta's breakfast
they'll be ill. I've got to stop her.
But how? She's not going to let you back into the kitchen.
-Luckily, I've got this with me.
-Not the shrinking cap, Grandpa!
Catch me if you can!
'When Grandpa shrinks, he gets up to all sorts of things.'
Come down, Grandpa!
'He runs and jumps about.
'He zooms around in the toy car.
'He gets into Josh's helicopter and makes it fly!
'Or he goes chuff-chuff in Sunnysands train.
'But today he had other ideas.
'He got onto my Mrs Ostrich and took off.
'Grandpa flew up and landed in the sitting room
'and sneaked past Demi and Danny Delight.
'While they were spinning around, he jumped into Upsie Downsie
'and went down to the kitchen.'
Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Chocolate chips in scrambled eggs!
-Whoa, that makes all the difference.
'There was nothing Grandpa could do about the egg,
'so he decided to hide the toothpaste
'but then Great Aunt Loretta started clearing up.'
-I'll just leave that to clump.
-'Grandpa had to hide.'
'So, he jumped into the egg box and shut the lid
'and then Great Aunt Loretta
'threw what she thought was an empty egg box into the bin!
'Grandpa was stuck!'
You can come in now.
Oh, Grandpa gone for a little wander, has he?
Oh, well, better than having him under my feet.
Come on, Elsie, you can see my creation.
Ta-da! It's a whole new breakfast experience!
Oh, nearly forgot the green gloop!
'Great Aunt Loretta put the whole new breakfast experience
'into Upsie Downsie. And sent it upstairs.
'Then, up she went too.'
Grandpa! Grandpa! Where are you?
-I'm in an egg box, in the bin!
-What?! Don't worry, I'm coming.
Oh, thanks! I couldn't stop her, Elsie.
She's already taken the breakfasts.
We've got to stop Demi and Danny from eating that revolting food. Quick!
Get into my pocket.
Now, come along, Demi.
You've got to finish up your toothpaste on toast,
-otherwise your teeth won't sparkle.
-I can't eat another bite.
It's giving me a tummy ache!
It's not my breakfast that's doing it,
-it's all the dancing. You've pulled a muscle.
Oh, it's getting worse by the second! Huh! Oh, dear. Excuse me.
-If I was you I'd go to the...
'Great Aunt Loretta won't say the word "toilet" out loud
-'cos she thinks it's rude.'
Waste not, want not. Ha-ha!
'I took Grandpa out of my pocket and put him down.
'He climbed up, and up and up.
'Until he found a good hiding place.'
-I'm feeling a bit urgh myself. All that toothpaste.
You're just nervous about the dancing show tonight.
I hope Demi's' going to be up to it.
It's not looking too good at the moment.
You won't be able to dance? There won't be a show?!
'Grandpa was really cross with Great Aunt Loretta.'
Now don't get yourself in a fluster, Elsie.
Course there's going to be a show. No need to cancel. No need at all.
Don't you go anywhere, Danny. Be back in a minute.
Now what's she up to?
'I had to find a way to get rid of Danny so I could talk to Grandpa.'
-Do you think you'd like to go and see if Demi's OK?
'Grandpa had jumped onto his chair.'
-Nothing's going right today, Grandpa!
Somehow we've got to make Demi and Danny feel better
so that they'll be able to dance again.
Something that will calm their tummies down.
My mum always drinks peppermint tea when she's got a bad tummy.
That's a brilliant idea. Peppermint tea made with real peppermint leaves.
-That's just what we need.
-But I don't think we've got any.
I know someone who will have. Miss Smiley.
She's bound to have peppermint leaves in her cafe.
-Get some, Grandpa! Quick as you can.
-OK, I will.
'So Grandpa jumped off the chair, ran across the floor,
'got back on Mrs Ostrich and set off for Miss Smiley's cafe.'
'Danny helped Demi back into the sitting room
'and put her legs up on the sofa. She looked really sick.'
She looks REALLY sick.
I am REALLY sick. SHE HICCUPS
Pardon, I can't help it!
My tummy is REALLY hurting. Ow!
And mine. I'll have to ring Miss Smiley and say the show's off.
'Danny Delight was about to dial the number,
'when this happened!'
I'm ready for you, Danny.
Come on! If we're doing the dancing show, we need to practise.
Sorry, but I only dance with Demi, see.
Well, she's not up to it, is she?
So I'm taking her place. Come on. Hee-hee.
Music, Elsie, please!

'Grandpa arrived at Miss Smiley's cafe on the pier.
'And he ran inside.
'He couldn't ask Miss Smiley if he could have a sprig of peppermint,
'but he knew she wouldn't mind.
'This was an emergency!'
Oh, peppermint leaves! Perfect.
'Back at the Mill on the Marsh,

-I told you, I'm not feeling too good. My tummy's really hurting.
-Well, you'd better go to the...
'I had a feeling Grandpa was on his way home.
'So I went downstairs to check.'
Ooh, I feel a bit queasy.
I'm telling you, it was the breakfast.
No, no, it was the dancing.
Oh... Excuse me.
-Oh, I think I'd better go to the...
'Grandpa had landed in the courtyard.'
-I've got the peppermint leaves.
Take your cap off.
Oh, we've done well, Elsie.
We'll get Demi and Danny to Miss Smiley's
if it's the last thing we do.
I shall now go and make a pot of peppermint tea.
'And soon, Danny and Demi Delight were feeling MUCH better.'
Do say thanks to your Grandpa, Elsie. He's saved the day.
-Does it mean the show's back on?
Come on, Demi, let's get practising.

'Soon, Great-Aunt Loretta was drinking Grandpa's peppermint tea.'
Oh, I must say, that's really perked me up!
And it's got real leaves. How did you manage that?
Oh, it was just a small job.
Sounds like Demi and Danny are feeling better.
They won't be needing your help now, Loretta.
I don't care! We can do our own dancing.
I am going to give you a fantastic ballroom dancing experience!
Hip! Hip! Feel the rhythm. Feel... Oh! Spin!
