Banana Bainbridge and the Blue Lake Monster

by Rachel Greentree
“Another case for you, Bainbridge!” yelled my boss, Chief Amadeus Hogwash, as he strode into the office. “There’s some kind of creature attacking fishermen on the lake.”
“Some kind of creature?” I asked.
Chief Hogwash tossed that morning’s edition of the Daily Scribble newspaper onto the desk.
“Monster strikes again!” screamed the front cover headline. There was a blurry photo of what looked like some kind of serpent diving into the lake. It was taken by a local fisherman, Ernie Snodsbury.
“A monster?” I said incredulously.
“I don’t suppose so,” replied Chief. “But I need you and that hairy hound of yours to go and investigate. Find out what’s going on.”
“OK, Chief,” I replied as I quickly read the newspaper story. I had just finished the story when Samson, my super-sleuth hound wandered into the room. 
“Good morning, Banana, old chap,” he said in his deep voice. “We’re going to investigate the Blue Lake monster – are we?”
“That’s amazing!” I said. “How did you know about the monster?”
“I’ve just been out for a walk and the whole town’s talking about it!” replied Samson. “Also, it’s on the front cover of every newspaper.”
“OK, super-sleuth!” I said. “You’re a hound. Any ideas on how to go hunting for it?”
Samson grinned at me. “I think we should talk to this Ernie Snodsbury. He says he’s seen the monster. Then we’ll have a look at the place where it appeared.”
“Let’s go!” I said walking into the lift.
