Inside this Book – 33A Treadlemill Road was a basement apartment beneath a shop on the other side of town. A boy named Ben Makepeace, who had eyes as sharp and dark as a sparrow’s and tousled tawny hair, lived there with his mom. Sometimes Ben helped in the shop. Other times he helped in the apartment. That morning, when he went to bring in the milk, he found an envelope propped up behind it. Ben was always wary of letters. Occasionally mail still came addressed to his dad, but he saw with relief that this wasn’t one of those. And it wasn’t addressed to his mom either. In fact, it wasn’t addressed to anybody at all. The flap of the envelope was unsealed. Ben hoped it wasn’t another bill. He peeked inside. At first, seeing only a piece of thin card with a picture on it, he guessed it was an advertisement. He sneaked it out to see it better because the picture showed lots of animals. Ben liked animals — though he didn’t have any pets: they weren’t allowed to keep pets in that apartment. In any case, these weren’t the sort of animals you could have kept at home. There was a giraffe, and a hippo, and a grumpy-looking owl, and in the bottom right-hand corner was a shrewlike creature with a pendulous nose. Ben’s heart began to beat faster as he gazed at the picture, for it stirred his most secret memory — a secret that he had never told to anyone at all.
Inside this book –The Hippo at the End of the Hall PDF Book by Helen Cooper – I’ve never heard of the Gee Museum,” said Ben’s teacher. “But I’ve been sent a heap of information from the Discovery Museum. Would you like a leaflet for that instead?” She held one out to Ben. It had the insect woman on the front of it. “No, thanks,” he said. She looked doubtfully at her computer screen. “Well, I can’t find it online. I suppose you could try asking at the Central Library. It isn’t open this afternoon, but you could ask your mom to take you tomorrow.” Ben was reluctant to mention the museum to Mom again. Anyway, she allowed him to go to the library alone. He was allowed to do lots of things alone because she was always so busy. Unfortunately Ben’s friends weren’t allowed the same freedom. This meant that Ben was on his own rather a lot. Well, I like exploring on my own, he always told himself. I’m just like my dad. Actually he had no real idea if this was true, because his dad was dead. He had died before Ben was three years old, had sailed away in a one-man boat and never come back. “Lost at sea,” Mom said. No one knew why or where. Mom didn’t like to talk about it, and if Ben ever asked questions, she would go still and look upset, and then she would change the subject. Indeed, over the years Ben had learned there was never a good time to ask questions about Dad. He certainly couldn’t ask her anything upsetting at the moment, because she was really worried about their rent. It had gone up again, and she was afraid that the landlord was planning to sell the building they lived in.
