By Brenda B. Covert

2     "Look!" Mrs. Kingsley said, pointing to an article in the paper. "A 12-year-old boy wrote this! If they'll publish his article on the adventures of camping, maybe they'll publish something of yours."
 
3     Allegra peered doubtfully at the article. "Maybe he's the editor's son."
