Dan took risks every day, diving on wrecks for sunken treasure, but the day he took the helmet round to show his sister he faced a hitherto unknown challenge.
Not that he knew that when he said blithely, “Sure – I’ll babysit.”
Dan was like a kid himself, building a camp with the furniture, but when he came face to striped tights with Polly’s rear end he recoiled in horror. Not even the sudden appearance of a giant squid had terrified him as much.
He grabbed the helmet. Valuable antique or not, it was the only way to deal with a smelly nappy.
