Breeze asked everyone in Mudpile Wood to help solve a mystery. Socks had gone missing, leaving most with only one sock of every color. Everyone agreed it was time to find the odd socks.
They searched everywhere, from the tip of the mountain to the bottom of the wood. Matt and Daisy-lyah searched in every rabbit hole. Tulip searched high into the sky in case the socks were carried up into the clouds by the wind. And they did not find one single sock.
Breeze remembered Bob, the dog had a friend called Ellie who loved finding things. He wrote her a short note:
Please help us find the odd socks from Mrs. Groundsels basket, if we don’t find them I am afraid we won’t get any delicious vegetable pies any more. I will ask Tulip to bake you some munchy dog biscuits.
I will leave the red basket on the smooth stones near your friend the dragon – at the pond.
Your best ogre friend
“What do we do now?” Hamish asked Breeze when they left the large washing basket at the smooth stones.
“We take a nap and let Ellie do her stuff.” Breeze said as he climbed the nearest tree. He tried to sleep but kept wondering about the missing socks. His dreams were filled with strange images: sheep eating socks, crows wearing socks after they pecked holes in the feet of the socks and the worst of all giant socks chasing Breeze.
Loud barking alerted them next morning and they went to find out what was wrong. Hamish stood looking at the red basket, “Well. I never.” He said over and over again.
“Superb. Great, Amazing. Happy days are here again, vegetable pie this evening for tea.” Breeze said.
“Woof.” said Ellie as she waited for them to bring her to Tulips house to collect her munchy, crunchy dog biscuits flavored with honey.
Do you doubt that she did it? Take a look at these pictures and tell me what you think?
