    Lost

    by Kylie Parry

    illustrated by Philip Webb

    Finn tells Mum he has found a small lost creature in the garden shed. Mum doesn’t look at the creature, so she thinks Finn is playing make-believe. But she plays along and tells Finn that the lost creature will need its mother and Finn will have to find her. After thinking hard, Finn comes up with a plan. Mum is shocked to discover at the end of the story that Finn wasn’t making things up! This delightful fantasy story is actually a poem, narrated entirely in rhyme.
