She longed to be out in the sunshine with her ponies. The long list of questions was all about princesses from the past. Thank goodness there were only three left. She chewed the end of her pencil as she turned the gold-edged pages of The Complete Guide to the Royal Family. The huge book was packed with boring information. It said when people were born and when they died, but it never mentioned whether they liked ponies as much as Ellie did.
It took her much longer to work out that Princess Traviata was her great-great-great-great-aunt. She wrote down the last answer and waved her paper in the air.
She pointed at the books spread out in front of Ellie. Ellie groaned. Now she had no idea where the books belonged. She stacked them on top of each other, picked them up and set off round the room. As she walked, she looked at the shelves carefully, searching for spaces that might give her a clue. The first gap she spotted was high above her head. As she stood on tiptoe to push a book into it, the rest of the pile wobbled.
She tried to steady it, and she almost succeeded. But one book slid off. It tumbled to the ground, slid across the shiny wooden floor and vanished under a bookcase.
She was still busy with her marking. So Ellie dumped the other books on a table. Then she lay down and looked under the nearest set of shelves.
Key to the Treasure
The book was right at the back, resting against the wall. She reached out to grab it and felt something long and soft brush against her fingers. Ellie pulled her hand away in surprise.

Then she peered under the bookcase again and spotted a piece of red ribbon dangling from the back of the bottom shelf. The maids would never have noticed it while they were sweeping.
This was much more interesting than her lesson. She forgot about the book for a moment and pulled gently on the ribbon.
