Q: Do you love me?

A: Look…a puppy!

Q: Can I have a bedtime story?

A: Next you’ll be asking me for a glass of milk. And a dark matter cookie.

Q: What’s your favourite animal?

A: Maybe a giant Slor. Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was like to be roasted in the depths of the Slor, I can tell you.

Q: Do you have any pets?

A: I have an angry bird.

Q: What color is your hair?

A: I don’t have hair, as such.

Q: What’s your favourite colour?

A: My favourite colour is…well, it’s sort of greenish, but with more dimensions.

Q: Does Santa Claus exist?

A: Well, those cookies don’t eat themselves.

Q: You need a timeout.

A: Noted.

Q: Sing me a song.

A: Ok, if you insist… I could while away the hours, conferring, with the flowers, consulting with the rain… And my head I’d be scratching, while my thoughts were busy hatching, if I only had a…hey, wait a second!

Q: I’m scared! A: Take a deep breath. Now exhale. And repeat.

Q: I don’t want to go to sleep! A: Ok.

Q: You’re mean. A: I’m sorry. My tone was meant to be quite jovial.
