Short Story for Children

In 2012 Tommi Salminen got an inspiration to write a short story for children who have just learned to read. The story is an exciting adventure that involves following clues and unraveling a mystery in a familiar neighborhood. The readers can also try to decipher a code that is puzzling the characters.

This piece is written in Finnish. The title is “Riku, Taavi ja Heidi – Syntymäpäiväseikkailu”, which implies that there could be more stories to come with the same characters if some publisher shows interest in it. The story was thoroughly reworked in 2020.
