Once upon a time, on a beautiful island fringed with palm trees, there lived a family called Mullet. They had been fishmongers for generations and generations. There was Father Mullet, Mother Mullet, and little Sebastian.
Sebastian was a handsome, sturdy boy. He was very young when he began working in the family fish store and he was his parents’ pride and joy. The fishermen who supplied the store with fish and shellfish were very fond of the little Mullet boy. His round, rosy face lit up with a broad smile whenever he saw these men returning from their long days at sea. He asked the sailors hundreds of questions about their life on board ship, about the fish and their habits, about the sea, about the gaily-colored ships.
Mr. and Mrs. Mullet were delighted with their son. He was their only child and, following a five-generation family tradition, would certainly take over the business when the time came.
Mrs. Mullet adored her store more than anything else. She loved the beautiful colors of the fish on display.
The name of my residence is “The Lilacs.” I’ve been living in this district for six years now. I often get letters in the post. I just love it when our postwoman hands me a letter with my address written by hand—a funny address, people often tell me:
4 Pinetree Avenue
Bagshot, Surrey, GU19 5, UK
It’s called a residence but it looks more like a council estate. There are three buildings. I live in the first one, which overlooks the street. We are the oldest inhabitants in the whole residence, together with our downstairs neighbours, the Noseys. We’ve called them the Noseys for so long that I have to look at what it says on their letterbox to remember what their real name is: Gérard and Germaine Godilloux. It all started when my father came in one day and said, “I took the lift up with the Noseys. Apparently the newcomers in the far-end building are breeding white rats in their bathtub.”
Marie used to be my Best Friend. One day, she accused me of STEALING her sequin-trimmed raspberry-flavoured fountain pen.
We had a terrible argument and she decided she would “never speak to me again... ever!” So Marie became my Worst Enemy. She organized a gang with three other girls and three boys in her class. At recess, they would pass by me snickering nastily just to make me feel bad. Then I found a new pal, Charlotte, who sits next to me in class, and I thought I’d organize a gang too.
So there! Marie wasn’t the only one to have bright ideas!
“A gang with only two people isn’t very much fun, is it?” Charlotte said when I talked to her about my idea.
“There’s just two of us for now, but soon there’ll be at least a hundred!” “A hundred is much too much Mathilda,” she protested.
“What I’m trying to tell you is that our gang is going to be so extraordinary that soon everybody is going to want to join up. We’re not going to just fool around in the school-yard or giggle, like Marie. We’re going to have unbelievable adventures.”
