My Birthday Surprise – Detailed Story

As you read the story below, substitute the underlined information with yours. This is just a sample, your book will be made using the information you submit (requested above).

  • Page 1 – Book title and picture illustrations
  • Page 2 – Picture illustration
  • Page 3 – "My Birthday Surprise" was created especially for Jessica Ann Smith, with love from Mommy and Daddy, July 27, 1998
  • Page 4 – Jessica Smith was so excited! Her "big" day had arrived! She had reminded everyone in Atlanta about her birthday on July 27th, for a long time. Jessica had not wanted a single person to forget this special day. Today she was 6.
  • Page 5 – Picture illustration
  • Page 6 – Another illustration
  • Page 7 – For months now, Jessica had been dreaming day and night about her party. She had asked her friends again and again, "Do you suppose my birthday will ever get here?" There were many names on her invitation list. Jessica hoped Amy could come. She was really looking forward to a great time!
  • Page 8 – It seemed to Jessica that her dreams always started out the same way. She would be sitting in the middle of an enormous room, all dressed up for her party. Beside her was a key ring with 10 magic keys, each a different color. Around her would be doors, and Jessica knew that the keys were there to open those matching, colored doors.
  • Page 9 – Picture illustration
  • Page 10 – Another illustration
  • Page 11 – In each dream, Jessica would find many happy, wonderful surprises behind the locked doors…except for one. There were 11 doors, but only 10 keys. Jessica wondered how she would get into that last room. There wasn’t even a knob on the door. Every time she would start to search for the missing key, she would wake up. Oh well! Maybe Amy could help her.
  • Page 12 – In her dreams, Jessica liked to start with the blue key that unlocked the blue door. The blue door looked as if it held a billion bouncing balloons. There were balloons of different shapes, colors and sizes, and Jessica had fun walking through them. There was one balloon that had to be the biggest, "bluest" balloon she had ever seen. This was so much fun; Jessica raced on to the next door!
  • Page 13 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 14 – More picture illustrations
  • Page 15 – The second door opened up to a white room with lots and lots of birthday cakes. There were tiny cakes and gigantic cakes and cakes just big enough for Jessica to eat all by herself. Some cakes were huge, but there was one snowy white cake behind the white door, that had 7 huge layers. It was a cake for Jessica. She wanted to show all these beautiful cakes to Amy.
  • Page 16 – When Jessica opened the cherry red door, she almost fell backward! What a fun dream! In front of her was a monstrous mountain of melting ice cream. There were cherries, nuts, whipped cream and syrup running down the sides. Jessica thought it would be so much fun to slide down this kind of mountain. What a delightful, delicious time she would have!

  • Page 18 – Another illustration
  • Page 19 – Jessica giggled when she opened the orange door to the clown room. Inside she found forty funny clowns, most of them with bright orange hair. There were fat clowns and thin clowns, short clowns and tall clowns, happy clowns and sad clowns. Some clowns did tricks, while other silly clowns just clowned around. In this orange room, Jessica laughed until she could laugh no more.
  • Page 20 – The green room had so many presents that Jessica had trouble opening the door. She wondered if any of the gifts were from Amy. She was hoping that one of those boxes would have something very nice she could play with on her birthday. Maybe it was the gigantic, green gift box! Should she open it? No, she must hurry to the next door.
  • Page 21 – Picture illustration
  • Page 22 – Another illustration
  • Page 23 – Jessica jumped up and down when she opened the glittering gold door and found a golden room full of rides for her birthday party. In the middle of the room was a beautiful gold merry-go-round. Surrounding it, Jessica could see the ponies with their golden saddles, a train ride and even a small ferris wheel!
  • Page 24 – A pink door opened up into a candy room. Jessica was amazed at all the candy. She found suckers, gumdrops, lollipops, peppermint sticks, hard candies, soft candies and all kinds of chocolate candies. There was also the biggest, bubbliest bunch of pink bubble gum that she had ever seen. Jessica knew that she would have to share this candy with Amy or she would have a big tummy ache.
  • Page 25 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 26 – More illustrations
  • Page 27 – Behind the brown door were many, many huggable animals. Jessica wanted to hold and squeeze the soft, cuddly brown teddy bears, as well as the cats, dogs, monkeys and dinosaurs. Some of the other animals, like the giraffe, were taller than Jessica. Others were so small they would fit in her hand. If she put all these animals in her room, she might not be able to find her bed. Wow, that would be neat!
  • Page 28 – When Jessica opened the yellow door, she found a yellow room filled with games fit for a king. Jessica saw pin the tail on the donkey, a fishing pond, balloons for water fights, jacks, musical chairs, drop the clothespin in the bottle, bobbing for yellow apples, hopscotch and ring toss. Jessica knew exactly which games she would play first in the yellow room.
  • Page 29 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 30 – More illustrations
  • Page 31 – Using the shiny silver key, Jessica opened the silver door and saw colorful streamers decorating every inch of the tenth room. She also found everything else she needed for her birthday party. Here were the plates, cups, napkins, forks and spoons. For her guests, there were stacks and stacks of silver whistles, silver bells, horns, blowers, birthday hats and other party favors. She knew that she was ready for her birthday party when she saw the squirt guns!
  • Page 32 – Jessica found herself in front of the last door that had no key. She leaned against the door to peek through the keyhole and, as she did, the door silently opened. She looked inside. The rainbow-colored room was ready for a birthday party with something from each of the other ten rooms, but Jessica was puzzled. Something was missing! How could a birthday party be fun if you were all alone? She became very sad.
  • Page 33 – Picture illustrations
  • Page 34 – More illustrations
  • Page 35 – Suddenly many voices sang out "Surprise!" and "Happy Birthday!" at the same time. Jessica Smith blinked her eyes and immediately stopped daydreaming. She turned around and saw Amy. This was her best birthday surprise of all! Now she knew that having family and friends was much more important than all the presents and decorations or even the cake. Oh, it was fun to be 6 and have a birthday celebration!
