“Rise and shine, kids!” Mr. Craft called.
Caleb woke with a big yawn. He was in a sleeping bag on his bedroom floor, next to his friends Jo, Hiro, and Luis. Everyone had come over last night for a sleepover.
“Looks like you guys had a bit of a rowdy night,” Mr. Craft chuckled.
Caleb frowned. “What do you mean? We watched a movie.”
“Come see for yourself.”
Everyone got up to follow Mr. Craft downstairs to the living room. Their eyes widened.
“What happened?” Hiro gasped.
There had been a framed family photo on a table. Now it was on the ground—the glass was shattered!
“It’s all right,” Mr. Craft said. “We can replace the frame. But something must have knocked it over.”
“I don’t remember that picture falling,” said Jo. No one else remembered either.
“So none of us know how it happened?” Caleb asked. “Hmm. This sounds like a case to solve! And I know just where to start. Everyone, come back upstairs with me!”
The group sat in a circle in Caleb’s bedroom.
“We’re going to re-create our schedules from last night,” Caleb announced. “I was the first one in bed—I was asleep by 8:00 p.m. Luis, how about you?”
“I was up late,” Luis said. “I went to sleep at 8:40 p.m.”
“Great!” Caleb said. “What did you do between 8:00 p.m. and 8:40 p.m, and who did you see?”
