Wendy's World- Thomas Edison
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Tim and Tess were spending the night at Wendy's house. Their parents were out of town. There was a blizzard outside. The children were playing a game. All the lights in the house went dark.
 
2     Wendy's parents told the children to bring their sleeping bags and blankets downstairs to the living room. They had a big fire going in the fireplace. The children cuddled up on the floor in front of the fire.
 
3     "How long do you the think the lights will be out?" Tim asked Wendy's dad.
 
4     "I'm sure the workmen will have them back on soon," answered Wendy's dad.
 
5     "I'm a little scared," said Tess. "I like having lights on when it's dark. I can't imagine what it was like before we had light bulbs. Who invented them, anyway?"
 
6     Wendy knew the answer to that. "Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. Let's ask him what it was like. Where are the magic dice?"
 
7     "They are in the drawer," offered Tim. "May I make the wish?"
 
8     "Sure," said Wendy and Tess together.
