Ella and Friends: Raiders of the Lost Story

Ella ja kaverit kadonneen tarinan metsästäjinä

Once upon a time…

Ella’s curiosity is piqued when she finds the beginning of a story on her desk. It’s printed on white paper with no watermark or fingerprints. Who wrote it, and how does the adventure continue?

– I didn’t write it, Hannah said when I showed her the paper at recess.
– Neither did I, Tina pointed out from over my shoulder, – I prefer romance to suspense.
– My mother would definitely write a less scary beginning, Sam declared.
– I’m more interested in fact than fiction, Thomas explained.
– My dad often tells porkies, Pate said.
– Does he really? I was surprised.
– Yes, my mother calls them fisherman’s stories.

I guess the author wasn’t Pate’s dad either. Meanwhile, a new suspect sneaks out the school with a leather bag slung over his shoulder. Only to befollowed by those keen to find the lost story.
