Wendy's World- Where Am I?
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Wendy, Tess, and Tim always walk home from school together. They like to talk as they walk. Most days they talk about what they did in school. Today was no different. Tim wanted to tell the girls about a story he had read in class.
 
2     "I really liked this story," said Tim. "It was exciting!"
 
3     "What was the story about?" asked Wendy.
 
4     "It was about a deep sea fisherman," answered Tim. "He was out fishing on his boat when a big storm came."
 
5     "That must have been scary," said Tess. "I don't think I would like to be on the ocean during a big storm."
 
6     "It was scary," said Tim. "The storm was so strong, it tore his boat apart. He had to hang on to some pieces of the boat to keep from drowning."
 
7     "That's awful," gasped Wendy. "What happened then?"
 
8     "After the storm passed," continued Tim, "the man could see that he was near an island. He paddled to the shore on his piece of wood."
 
9     "Thank goodness he was alive!" said Tess.
 
10     "Yes, he was alive. But he didn't know how to get off the island," said Tim. "He gathered palm fronds to make himself a shelter. He got dry driftwood to make a fire."
 
11     "How did he start the fire?" asked Tess.
