So he sticks his fingers in his ears For the noises make them sore. Slide 4: Some of the noises are magnified As clear as to a bat He hears a rumble of thunder But it’s just a purring cat Slide 5: He won’t go in the garden It’s too noisy - day or night As the birds, butterflies and bees Go rattling past in flight Slide 6: The lovely gurgling stream you hear Is an army fighting a war Slide 7: And even the quietest whisper Sounds loud as a lion’s roar Slide 8: BUT - when Christopher’s in his castle All the bells could ring And the mountains could come tumbling down And he wouldn’t hear a thing Slide 9: Sometimes his eyes go weird They play all sorts of tricks A leaf looks like a tree and That pencil’s thick as a stick And the hair on your head Is like a bowlful of spaghetti : And the hair on your head Is like a bowlful of spaghetti Slide 11: And teeny weeny bits of dust Look like pieces of c o n f e t t i Slide 12: Chris cannot do up his laces They blur and wiggle and squirm Slide 13: And every time he catches one It wriggles away like a worm Slide 14: Auntie Jane and her family Came round for Sunday tea Jennifer, Peter and Uncle Fred And their scruffy dog called Gee. Sitting at the dining table They’re all eating their lunch But Chris cannot eat his food He’s only aware of the MUnCH Slide 15: ‘Don’t you worry about a thing’, Said Mr Carruthers to Mum ‘I’ll keep my eye on Christopher And make sure that nothing’s wrong’. Slide 16: ‘Oh yuck! His eye on me’, thought Chris, ‘Whatever shall I do Why can’t he keep his eyeballs in Perhaps he needs some glue’. Slide 17: Chris lives inside a puzzle Life’s a very frightening game People’s faces go blank sometimes So everyone looks the same Slide 18: He’s looking for a sign To tell him who is who, A beard, a mole, an earring, A scar or a tattoo, Slide 19: A familiar perfume Or a dark bushy beard Now Mummy’s had her hair done And everything is weird Slide 20: He remembers the shape Of her long black curly hair But now it’s gone – it’s turned quite blonde And mummy is NOT THERE I’m sorry Mrs Jones – Chris won’t go home with you until you show him two forms of ID Slide 21: Mum baked a lovely marble cake She offered Chris a piece But Chris refused, because he thought The marbles might break his teeth.
