At the end of the day she packed up and jumped in the car and dropped her jumper. Now a young boy called Henry Jervis noticed the jumper and took it home and washed it himself. Meanwhile Lux’s mother was rushing to the hospital because of a spider bite, received the message that the jumper had been found.

“it’s my favourite jumper’, Lux Honeyman says, “I am going to wear it everyday”.
Every day turned out to be one single Tuesday. It’s a hot day so Lux takes off her special jumper. Lux chats to her friends as she absentmindedly places it on top of her bag. At home time, she rushes like whirlwind out of the school gates and into the car.
Minutes later, Year 5-6 student Henry Jervis notices a sad looking piece of clothing lying in the gutter. He picks it up and realises it is a very nice and comfortable jumper. The sort of jumper that someone would want back. Without telling his mum, Henry takes the jumper home and washes it himself.
Meanwhile, Lux unpacks her school bag. “Kite”, she says softly to her big sister, “I’ve lost my jumper”. Lux feels extremely disappointed so she makes wanted posters for her missing treasure. They hand them out everywhere around the school.
One morning Agatha, Henry’s sister notices a poster of the missing jumper in the classroom. Agatha and Henry talk about it at home. “I’ll bring the jumper to school tomorrow”, agrees Agatha. Soon a teacher knows about it and passes the message onto Tara, Lux’s mum. Lux is overjoyed.
