Screech Owls Prequel (Screech Owl Mysteries):
In this prequel to the Screech Owls mystery series, the kindergarten class of Lord Stanley Public School find themselves involved in their very first mystery at the same time as the gang Travis, Nish, Sarah and most of the other Owls take to the ice for the very first time. This is the story of why the Screech Owls became the Screech Owls, and how Nish went from the most disliked kid in school to, as he put it, the hero of the fledgling hockey team.

All rights reserved.Chapter 1Travis Lindsay looked over at Sarah Cuthbertson, and both of them, at exactly the same time, rolled their eyes toward the ceiling.How many times in all the years they had been in the same grade and on the same hockey team had they shared this same look? And how many times had it involved Wayne Nishikawa Nish the Screech Owls best defenceman and Traviss best friend in the world, not to mention the most self-centred, most attention seeking, most self-glorifying twelve-year-old that had ever lived?The Screech Owls had been invited to take the magnificent trophy they had won at the Bell Capital Cup in Ottawa and show it off to the lower grades at Lord Stanley Public School. They had started the day in Miss Robinsons kindergarten class. And as he talked to the five-year-olds sitting in their tiny chairs, Nish, as always, was holding court. The little kids eyes were big as saucers as Nish explained how he, too, had once sat in this very same kindergarten classroom (before he became one of the greatest stars of the hockey world), and how he had once rescued the little screech owl called Stanley who had inspired the name of the towns most famous hockey team.Sarah eased over and whispered in Traviss ear. Wouldnt they just love to hear the real story . . .Travis giggled. Would they ever!As Nishs story got more and more unbelievable, Travis couldnt help but think back to the day they had entered this same classroom for the very first time . . .
