Charley Says... (11K)

Boy:

[voiceover]
Charley and I were in the park. Then this man came up and said would I like to see some puppies.

The boy imagines a playful puppy.

 

And I was going to go, but Charley stopped me.

Charley:

Meow... Meow... Meow... etc.

Charley gesticulates and meows.

Boy:

[to man]
Charley's reminded me my mum says I shouldn't go off with people I don't know.

[voiceover]
Then the man went away. We went and told mummy and she said we'd been very good. I got an apple and Charley got something he likes.

Charley:

Meow... Meow... Meow... etc.

Charley meows whilst eating his fish.

Boy:

[to us]
He says, never go anywhere with men or ladies you don't know.
