Kelsey and Robbie found themselves hiding in a storage cupboard at the end of the chapter. Their plan was to escape the mansion and then call the police. If the pair of them could phone the police now from the store cupboard, what would they say? They would need to explain their entire circumstance starting with getting on the train. Write a telephone dialogue between the pair of them and the police. We’ve practiced dialogue before, it’s so important to make sure you get all of your speech punctuation in the correct place including your inverted commas and commas.

Near the beginning of this chapter Kelsey locked Ambika in a room with other train passengers that had been gassed. But why? What clues did the author give us that Kelsey thought something wasn’t right about Ambika. There was one very obvious clue just before Kelsey shoved Ambika into the room but there were lots of other little clues that the author gave us prior to that. Can you find them and tell us what they were? Did the author mention how Ambika was moving, how she was talking or her overall body-language? Give us exact examples from the text.

After escaping the guards through the woods the three children found themselves in an almost idyllic village.

Write a setting description of the village using the information that the author has given us. You can draw a picture of the village if it will help you visualise it.
