Waking up after a racket, Caroline was startled to find a small and grey mouse under her bed, which appeared to be trying to get her attention. She wondered what the mouse wanted after it woke her up. It seemed to want her to follow it, Caroline was nervous. What does the mouse want? Why was it here? She followed the mouse down the creaky stairs and into a gloomy room, only to find a secret, old and wooden door.  The door opens into an unusually coloured passage. She could just make out another door on the other side. She thought for a second. Then went through. Her heart was pounding and she gasped. She was lost for words.

Great writing Baker! Full of suspense and intrigue – I want to know more!
