Lifting Off to Planet Om


     One bright fall morning, Sky and Rose were playing ball in their backyard. Suddenly, Rose stopped and dropped the ball. She stared upward toward the sun. A mysterious object was slowly coming down. Could it be? "Look!" she yelled. "There’s a spaceship landing in the empty field!"
     Oh, come on, Rose," said Sky. "You don’t really believe in spaceships." Rose couldn’t say a thing. She just stood there without moving an inch. Sky turned around. Was he ever surprised.
     "I can’t believe it!" said Sky. "Come on, Rose. Let’s go!"
    They hurried toward the field, half excited and half scared. The hatch of the spaceship slowly slid open. An Earth-like boy appeared with a bright star sparkling in him.
