From: Introduce Lyme to a Child

There's a matinée today, so finding a child to talk to is easy. Encourage Lyme to entertain her, perhaps by showing her a toy.

"I like Mr Lyme. He's friendly."

Under your supervision, Lyme does very well. He neither scares the child nor breaks the toy. In fact, the little girl seems to find him quite charming.


"Mummy, help me. He smells strange."

You instruct Lyme to smile at the child as best he can, but the mangled grimace he produces sends her screaming back to her - by now irate - mother.
