Here is a passage from Major Dakota’s Ghost:
Commander Rocky has been whisked away to the United States of America to help rid Major Dakota’s home of a pair of dog-nappers. He has followed them but in doing so has found himself trapped in a corridor:
The two men opened the door sharply and a beam of light tore into the dark passageway. Commander Rocky jumped back and hid in a doorway. They stomped from the room and slammed the door shut behind them. Then they walked quickly down the passageway weaving a torch light in front of them.
When they had left the building, Commander Rocky sighed with relief. The ghost of Major Dakota sighed too.
“That was close,” he said.
Rocky spun around quickly. “Where did you come from?” he hissed at the ghost.
“Where do you think?” he answered. “I’m a ghost, remember? I can walk through walls!”
Your task is to pretend that you have super powers like a ghost. Create a story about what happened when you found yourself in a bad situation at school. Here are some ideas: What did you do? Were you caught? How did your friends react?
