Reuben took charge of the package but, as it had Mam's name on it, he didn't open it. When he turned to walk away, he thought he heard a strange sound, so he put his ear to the package.
Yes! There was definitely a noise coming from inside it. It was a cross between rustling and snuffling.

'Mam! Dada!' he yelled, as he gingerly edged away from the package that, now he rally looked at it, seemed to be moving too.
