Wendy's World- Flying Machines
By Jane Runyon
  

1     "Oh, no," cried Tess. "What have you done to my bicycle, Tim?"
 
2     Tess and Wendy had just entered Tess's back yard. They found Tim sitting on the ground. Pieces of Tess's bicycle were all around him.
 
3     "I think I can make it go faster," said Tim. "I took it apart. Now I'm not sure if I can put it back together."
 
4     "Maybe we should get some help," said Wendy. "I just read about a bike shop where we might find someone to help us. Let's go to my house and get the dice."
 
5     "How are the dice going to help us?" asked Tess.
 
6     "You'll see," answered Wendy. "Leave the pieces, Tim. We'll get them when we come back."
 
7     The three children went to Wendy's room. They found the magic dice. They all knew they were in for a new adventure. They sat down on the floor, and Wendy made her wish. "I wish we could visit the Wright Brothers Bike Shop."
 
8     The children looked around them. They knew they were no longer in Wendy's room. The people were dressed in a style from long ago. The railroad station had the words Dayton, Ohio, painted on its side. A calendar hung outside a building that had a sign reading General Store. The calendar was from 1903. In front of the children was a small building with a work space at the side. Two men were busy in the work space. There were bicycles and bicycle parts all around them.
