Christopher caught a cold.

It wasn't very old;

He coughed on Carl and Callum,

and they caught Christopher's cold.



 Clever Clare

Clever Clare

can climb a cliff,

and keep her clothes quite clean.

She keeps so clean

you'd never guess

where clever Clare has been. 



Cooper caught a cold

When he kissed a kangaroo.

“Oh, crumbs!” said Cooper,

“Whatever can I do?

I can’t cope with a cold

And a croaky throat,

So I’ll cure the cold

With a can of coke”.


Illustrated  by Cooper, 6 years .                                                                                                



Corey wasn't cautious

so of course he caught a chill;

he called Doctor Corncob

who prescribed a colic pill.

Christie’s sister’s little finger

 had a big bad blister

Christie fixed it with a plaster

and her sister

kissed her.




Carmelita and the Cheetahs

Raced 100 metres;

The cheetahs tried to cheat her,

But Carmelita beat the cheetahs.

And he said “This

Is really bliss!”
