Around and Around

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     Marty was so excited he could hardly think! He had been reading a book about Ferris wheels. He had learned that the first Ferris wheel was built by George Ferris in 1893. It was two hundred sixty-four feet tall! Marty's head went around and around! No Ferris wheel could be taller than that, he thought.
 
2     He ran to the house next door. He could see his Uncle Ted working in the garage. Uncle Ted would know if there were Ferris wheels taller than the first one.
 
3     "Uncle Ted!" he called. "Uncle Ted!"
 
4     "I'm right here," Marty's uncle said. "What are you so excited about, Marty?"
 
5     "Did you know that a man named George Ferris built the first Ferris wheel and that it was two hundred sixty-four feet tall and that is really tall and I bet there aren't any Ferris wheels that tall now?" Marty almost shouted.
 
6     Uncle Ted put down his tools and laughed. "Marty, slow down. I think you started to ask me a question. By the time you finished, I did not know what the question was!"
 
7     Marty took a deep breath. "Are there any Ferris wheels in the world that are taller than two hundred sixty-four feet?" he asked.
 
8     "Oh, yes, there are lots of them," Uncle Ted said. "As a matter of fact, the world's tallest Ferris wheel is more than twice that tall."
 
9     "Really?" Marty asked. "Are you kidding me, Uncle Ted?"
