Description: Simon and John decide to go on a road trip in their mother's Mini to see "places that were new to them".Their travels take them to a castle near the edge of a forest and the two brothers think it would be fun to explore the place. It turns out, however, that the castle is not abandoned and a boy and his uncle are living there.
