Bentzi and the Magic Potion: Chapter 1 — Chemda’s Secret

Shifra Glick

Two things we thought would never happen, suddenly did. Both on the same day. One to me and one to Bentzi.

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

I got a letter in the mail. Really! When I got home from school, I saw an envelope peeking out of the mailbox. At first I thought it must be some bill or invitation, but it had my name on it. Who could have sent me a letter? I turned the envelope over, looking for the sender’s name. It was from Chemda! Yes, Chemda from Silver Brook Village, where we went on vacation and found a hidden treasure, remember? I told you all about it in Bentzi and the Abandoned House. When we left Silver Brook, Chemda and I said we would write to each other. But you know how it is… It’s easier to talk about these things than to actually do them.
