The Mystery of the Floating Boy
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Jerry Smith floated up. His red hair floated up, too. Luckily, his freckles did not float away. They stayed on his smiling face.
 
2     Jerry was in the air. His arms were spread out. His feet were off the ground. He smiled. This was fun! Soon Jerry's turn was over. He came down. His feet hit the ground. Where was Jerry? How could he float like that? Can you solve the mystery?
 
3     Jerry got a video of his experience. His family then could watch him float. They giggled.
 
4     "Wow, he looks like a gymnast!" said sister Sarah. Her bright blue eyes were wide in wonder.
 
5     "Look at that," said Mrs. Smith.
