Wendy's World - A Man With a Dream
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Wendy heard the telephone ring from her bedroom. A few minutes later her mother called up the stairs, "Wendy."
 
2     "Yes, Mom," she answered.
 
3     "Would you please come down here? I have an invitation for you," said her mother.
 
4     "Sure," answered Wendy as she went down the stairs. "What is the invitation?"
 
5     "That was Tim and Tess's mother on the phone," her mother explained. "The children would like for you to come to their house to see their wax museum."
 
6     "Their what?" asked Wendy.
 
7     Her mother continued, "Tim and Tess's class is having a wax museum at school. Each of the children has chosen an admired person. Each has done research on that person."
 
8     "But, what does that have to do with wax?" asked Wendy.
 
9     "Models of famous people are created in a wax museum," said her mom. "People can come to the museum to learn more about the famous people. Tim and Tess are going to act like statues that come to life and tell about themselves."
 
10     "That sounds like fun," announced Wendy. "May I please go over there now?"
 
11     "Yes," said Mom, "just be back in time for dinner."
 
12     "I will," said Wendy as she put on her coat.
 
13     Wendy knocked on Tim and Tess's front door. Their mother ushered her in. "Welcome to the Second Grade Wax Museum," she said. "Feel free to look around. If you have any questions, please ask the statues. They will answer you."
