Wendy's World - Visitors from Japan
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Tess and Tim saw something different on Wendy's house. It was Saturday. They were going to visit their friend. On the front porch was a flag floating in the wind. It looked like a big fish. Why would Wendy's parents have a fish flag on their front porch? Then Wendy answered the front door. They were more puzzled. Wendy had on a beautiful shiny robe with a big belt. Wendy bowed very low, bending from her waist as they entered.
 
2     "What is going on?" questioned Tess. "You look very different. You are acting differently, too."
 
3     "Why is that fish on your front porch?" asked Tim.
 
4     "I will answer all of your questions in the tatami," answered Wendy. "Please follow me."
