Into the classroom the two of them hurried
And found Mr Jones looking terribly worried.
He tugged at his hair and he let out a sigh
Peter looked around and he started to cry.

Nell gave a growl when she heard the bad news,
But then started sniffing and searching for clues.
Sniff, sniff, sniff! On the bookshelf, a cap!
The thief must have dropped it, the terrible chap.
