“I’ll make a soundtrack on your keyboard,” said Finn. “And some homemade sound effects . . .”
Their ideas were flowing like molten lava from an erupting volcano.Riley grabbed his movie notebook from his backpack. He turned to a fresh page to write everything down. He wasn’t going to let a single thought slip away!
