Once upon a time, there was a girl named Holly. She was feeding 2 dogs named Scruffy and Otis. But Otis was not there! "I'm sure I put Otis back after his walk" said Holly. She got Scruffy and went down to peoples houses to ask if they had seen Otis, but they all said no. They saw a pug running up to them! But it was not Otis. They went home, and she feed Scruffy and put out a bowl of dog food for Otis. Then they went to bed. The next day, Holly grabbed Scruffy and they went looking for Otis. They just missed him because someone just grabbed Otis! Holly and Scruffy still went looking. At the end of the day Scruffy went home but Holly was still looking, but she went home 5 mins later. The next day the lady who found Otis put out posters so the people will know she has got Otis. Holly went and feed Scruffy and then they went for a walk to find Otis. As Holly and Scruffy were walking down the street she saw the poster about Otis. Holly went to the lady's house and got Otis back "Thank you" said Holly.

W.A.L.T: create an invention to help us solve the case. 

This is my invention for reading. Where it says press this button it will call the owner of the shop and the other button will make a big white flash in there eyes. But when you are in and you are the owner and you press the button it will not work but it will work if you are not the owner it will go on.
