My Farm Adventure – 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 (listed above).

Page 3 – "My Farm Adventure" was created especially for Michael Jeremy Smith at the age of 8, with love from Grandma and Grandpa, December 25, 1999.
Page 4 – "Rooster is up to his old tricks again," sighed Harriet Holstein. "If we don’t find him soon, it will be one of those days again. By the way, who’s that boy standing over there?"

Dasher Hound, who knew absolutely everything about what happened on the farm, looked over and saw a young boy walking around the barn. "If my eyes don’t deceive me," said Dasher excitedly, "I think it’s Mike Smith, that famous child detective. I’ve heard that he has solved more mysteries in 8 years than Sherlock Holmes solved in his lifetime. This could be our lucky day."

Page 7 – "Lucky day!" sighed Harriet Holstein again. "You must be kidding. Do you remember the last time Rooster disappeared? Why, Penny Pig was so angry about missing her breakfast that she didn't speak to Rooster for 3 days, and you know how much penny Pig likes to talk!"
  • "Hey, here comes Mike," said Dasher. "He looks cool."

  • Page 8 – The animals turned to greet Mike. "Welcome to our farm," said Dasher. "I’ve heard that you are one of the best detectives in the whole world. I have a nose for these things, you know."

"You have a nose for everything," kidded Penny. "In fact, there’s enough nose on you to share with everyone on the farm."  Dasher didn’t mind making jokes about his own nose. However, he did mind it when others made jokes at his expense.  "Silence!" He shouted at penny. "At least I have a nose."

  • Page 11 – Dasher turned back to Mike. "We have a major problem here," he explained. "You see, Rooster has disappeared and when that happens the farm, well, the farm kind of falls apart. Rooster knows this and he likes to hide and make everyone look for him. But no one has ever found him – he’s just too clever. Perhaps a world famous detective, such as yourself, could find him."
  • Page 12 – Mike looked at the worried faces of Dasher, Penny and Harriet. "But why don’t you just wait for Rooster to come out of his hiding place?" he asked, puzzled. 

"And you call yourself a detective!" wailed Charlene Chicken who had just arrived to join the conversation. "We can’t wait. Don’t you know what happens when Rooster isn’t here?" Mike didn’t know. But that didn’t matter. "I’d love to help," said Mike happily. "And so will Larry." "If only I knew why this is so important," he whispered to himself.

Page 15 – Mike asked Dasher to gather the farm animals for an important meeting. Everyone was soon in attendance. There was Charlene Chicken, Penny Pig, Harriet Holstein, Rhonda Rabbit, Cheshire Charlie, Hoot Owl and Clydesdale. 

Dasher didn’t waste any time getting to the point. "Rooster is hiding," he said.

Page 16 – "Not again!" shrieked Cheshire Charlie. 

"Why us!" cried Rhonda Rabbit. The other animals moaned and whined. "No problem," said Hoot Owl. "I’ll do the job." This only made everyone moan and whine louder.

Dasher finally shouted to get everyone’s attention. "We are going to find Rooster," he said. Right here, right now, right on this farm, is Mike Smith, the world famous detective. He has come here from Woodbridge and has promised to find Rooster." No one heard him. All the animals were cheering wildly. The pressure was on Mike.

Page 19 – Detective Mike put on his thinking cap. Well, it wasn’t really a thinking cap, just his favorite old hat, but he always had better ideas when he wore it. More importantly, he looked awesome in it. 

Mike turned slowly to Larry. "I have a plan," he said. "Let’s go to the pond.’

Page 20 – Four ducks were swimming in the pond. Mike looked at them very very closely. Three ducks were good swimmers, while one seemed to be struggling to stay afloat.

"Do you know where I can find Rooster?" he asked.

"It’s not possible to find Rooster," the duck replied. "No one ever has, and no one ever will find him. He’s too clever." Mike’s eyebrows twitched. This always happened when he discovered a clue.

Page 23 – Next they walked to a field where some crows were hurriedly eating their dinner, while Scarecrow took one of his frequent naps.

"Can I ask you crows a question?" began Mike. "Does anyone know where Rooster is?"

"Everything is not always as it seems," said one crow.

Just then scarecrow opened his eyes. All the crows flew away, except the one who had talked to Mike. He ran away. Mike’s eyebrows twitched.

Page 24 –Then Mike went with Larry to visit the pigpen. Penny Pig was glad to see them and started talking excitedly. Mike scanned the pen and turned his attention to a rather thin looking pig.

"Do you know where I can find Rooster?" he asked.

"No one on this farm knows where Rooster is," the pig answered. "But I’ll give you a clue. Rooster is never far from the action." Mike’s eyebrows twitched.

  • Page 27 –The next stop was the barn where all the cows were settling down for the night. Mike walked around the stalls, carefully watching where he stepped. He turned to a cow standing close to Harriet Holstein and Sked, "Why is everyone so upset about Rooster not being here?"

"That would be obvious," the cow replied, "if you lived on a farm. Why, without Rooster, these poor cows, whoops, I mean, us poor cows would have too long a night’s sleep, our udders would fill up with milk, and we would be very uncomfortable." Mike’s eyebrows twitched again.

  • Page 28 – "Where are we going next?" asked Larry

"To visit the horses." Replied Mike, "and watch where you step when we get there." Mike did not know everything about life on a farm, but he did know about watching his step around cows and horses.

Page 29 – Picture illustration
Page 30 – Another illustration
Page 31 – The horses seemed restless. Clydesdale was nervously pacing back and forth, his big hooves making large footprints in the dirt. Another horse was pecking corn off the ground. Mike’s eyebrows twitched rapidly.

The horse, who was eating corn, suddenly realized that Mike was watching. Quickly he turned his attention to a pile of hay. Mike turned to Dasher. "Please ask the other animals to meet me in front of the barn, and make sure the sheep are there." "I will," replied Dasher, "if they are not in the baa-throom." Dasher laughed at his own joke as he went out to gather the animals.

Page 32 – All the animals gathered in front of the farm, but Mike was nowhere to be seen. The sheep were very calm, except for one, who kept looking nervously back and forth.

Suddenly, one of the sheep stood up on two legs. "This is unusual," said Clydesdale in a slow drawl.

"Sheep can’t stand on two legs." He was right. It was really Mike in disguise. "Guess what," he said. "Someone else is also in disguise." He pulled a mask off a startled Rooster. He had been caught!

  • Page 35 – "How did you solve the case?" asked a disappointed Rooster. "No one has ever done that before."

"It was easy, replied Mike. "You had trouble swimming like a duck, you didn’t fly away like the other crowns, you were too thin to be a pig, and horses don’t peck corn. Case closed."

"Rooster is found!" shouted the farm animals. "Now he will wake us up tomorrow. He has the most important job on the farm." Detective Mike had saved the farm. He had also discovered why Rooster was so important. 

  • Page 36 – The next morning at 5:37 a.m. Rooster woke up. Several minutes later, everyone else was awake thanks to a rather vigorous cock-a-doodle-doo. 

Owl closed his eyes and went to sleep. "I could have done that," he said. "No one gives a hoot about my feelings."
