"I know why you are here," Robin tells them. "You are going to find grandfather's puzzle box."
"Yes, we are. We think we can help you soon." "I hope we'll play football and do many other things together," Michael says. "Oh, good," says Robin. "Please find that box." "We will," Michael and Nancy go back into the living room. Mr Hall, Robin's grandfather, is waiting* for them.
"Uncle Ben," Nancy says, "we don't really understand. You wrote to me, but how can the puzzle box help Robin?" "You can see that Robin is very sick. The operation will be very expensive. We do not have much money. The puzzle box is very important for us. It is the only way* to get money. It's a secret box. Nobody can open it. The box has been in our family for a long time. My father told me how to open it."
"But how will the box help? Is there money in it?" asks Michael. "Ah," Mr Hall says. "That is a secret, too. Will you find the box for me?" ''We will. But where is the box?"
"I don't know. Maybe one of our relatives has the box now." "But how are you going to find out where the box is?" "I'll call Carol. She lives in Boston. She may know something about the box. I'll call her and tell her that you are coming."
"When shall we leave?"
