A girl called Pippa is going to visit her Gran, who lives in the mountainous forests of America. But just as the journey begins all things turn terribly wrong.


2. The Picnic Basket

“What?” Mum asked politely with a little hint of annoyance in her voice.

“Umm.....I never knew I was supposed to bring the picnic basket.” I replied in my most, sweetest, innocent voice ever.

“I told you at breakfast to bring the picnic basket with the food in!” Mum shouted, so everyone could hear,” Remember...when I gave you the smoothie.”

“No,” I answered calmly”I was probably listening to my music.  I’ve told you before, that I can’t hear anything with my ear phones in! But I thought you were talking to Dad anyway.”

“Well, I guess we should all go and find some food then,” Mum suggested angrily “there is a lake nearby so we can catch fish there.”

“Yeah!” I happily replied, trying to make her forget about the basket.  We all walked over to the camp site.

“It will take five days to get to Gran’s house, so we must not break anything this time.  Do you understand boys?!”

“Yes, Dad” Jim and Joe said in unison, who just stopped playing tug of war with the fishing rod.
