Adventure awaits!  Read an extract from Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Adventure by Jeff Kinney

CHAPTER ONE

Once upon a time in a land far away there lived a boy named Roland. And Roland was a very good boy.

Back then school hadn’t been invented yet so most kids worked on their family farms all day. But Roland’s parents thought it was important for their son to get an education and to learn to play an
instrument. So he spent his days inside, reading books and practicing the flute. Roland didn’t like practicing the flute very much but he never complained because he wanted to be a good son.

It was a dangerous time when ogres and giants roamed the land. So Roland’s parents liked him to stay indoors where it was safe, especially after dark.

Roland had never even been outside his village. He wished he could go on adventures like his grandpa Bampy the Brave who used to fight monsters and search for treasure. But Bampy was never the same after he got back from his adventures. And Roland knew that was because Bampy didn’t always wear his helmet and he got hit on the head a few too many times.
