My Fishing Adventure (Grown-ups) - The Detailed Story

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

  • Page 1 - The book title and picture illustrations
  • Page 2 - Picture illustration (2 samples shown above this page)
  • Page 3 - "My Fishing Adventure" was created especially for Michael Jeremy Smith at the age of 53, with love from Grandma and Grandpa, June 12, 2008
  • Page 4 - It had been a long day, and Mike Smith was ready to hit the sack.  As usual, he was looking forward to his favorite bedtime activity - reading his fishing catalog.  Although he rarely caught anything, Mike was hooked on fishing.  If he could only learn to land the big ones at Atlanta!
  • Page 5- Picture illustrations
  • Page 6 - More illustrations
  • Page 7 - Certainly Mike, at the ripe age of 53, was no longer a child.  However, Larry, Wayne and Bob suspected that deep down, he would always be a kid at heart when it came to fishing.  Fortunately for Mike, nobody knew Bobber Bear was his hero!  He carried his bear with him on every fishing trip.
  • Page 8 - Being a real snoozer, Mike began to doze off.  He started to dream he had become Bobber Bear.  This was the most exciting dream he had ever had in his whole life!  Dad, his fishing pal, was also transformed into a bear.
  • Page 9 - Picture illustrations
  • Page 10 - More illustrations
  • Page 11 - Now, to most of us, being transformed into a bear might be cause for a little concern.  but Mike was excited about it!  After all, bears, unlike himself, often catch fish.  Not wanting to waste the opportunity, Mike and Dad hurriedly entered the fishing tournament.  Maybe this time they would win...something!
  • Page 12 - Mike and Dad checked out sinkers, flies, hooks, floats and anything else they might need for the fishing contest at The Best Little Lure House.  They also found time to pick up a few munchies and some cold beverages.  Mike didn't have enough pocket change to buy the new boat he admired.  You'd think anything was possible in a dream!
  • Page 13- Picture illustrations
  • Page 14 - More illustrations
  • Page 15 - Next, Mike and Dad decided a visit to a fish aquarium would be beneficial.  Last year, after being skunked at the tournament, Mike had bought a rather large fish to fool Larry, Wayne and Bob.  Embarrassingly, though, the fish he had purchased was not even  local to the area.  Mike's credibility as a fishing wizard went right down the drain!
  • Page 16 - Before they knew it, they were at their favorite fishing hole, AtlantaMike and Dad opened their cold beverages and started some serious fishing.  as usual, the bites were incredible!  Unfortunately, only the mosquitoes and flies enjoyed the action.
  • Page 17 - Picture illustrations
  • Page 18 - More illustrations
  • Page 19 - Several hours (and beverages) later, Mike and Dad were getting discouraged.  Despite being fishing bears, they still weren't catching any fish!  "Phew, it sure seems hot today," exclaimed Mike.  "I'm sure I've had too much sun!"  he opened yet another beverage.
  • Page 20 - After trying all their other lures, they decided to switch to worms.  Worms wiggled so much, and because Mike was also a klutz, he often hooked himself, not the worm.  Mercifully, Dad agreed to bait his hook.  "We've got to catch something," they both agreed.  "Otherwise, we'll have to listen to all that ridicule from Larry, Wayne and Bob again this year.
  • Page 21- Picture illustrations
  • Page 22 - More illustrations
  • Page 23 - Mike prided himself on being a skilled angler.  There was nothing he couldn't do with a rod and line.  However, today his coordination seemed to be off.  This was just more proof he had already had too much------sun!
  • Page 24 - After losing more than a few worms, sinkers and hooks, Mike was finally successful.  "Looks like a fish, only smaller!" quipped Dad.  "Well, at least I caught something that was alive!" retorted Mike.  "I can't wait to show Larry, Wayne and Bob the 20-pound boot you hooked."
  • Page 25 - Picture illustrations
  • Page 26 - More illustrations
  • Page 27 - Mike and Dad had been fishing for hours and had only caught that one small fish.  "I can't believe this!" complained Mike.  "I thought bears always caught lots of fish!"  "Why don't you just wind in your line, and let's eat our lunch?" Dad asked.  "Then we can go home."  "I can't now," grumbled Mike, "I think I'm snagged again."
  • Page 28 - Suddenly, there was a big jerk on the end of Mike's line.  No...it wasn't Dad.  "LOOK!" Mike shouted, as he grabbed his rod.
  • Page 29 - Picture illustrations
  • Page 30 - More illustrations
  • Page 31- Now Mike and Dad knew the sun must really be affecting them.  They imagined this fish was so-o-o big that it started pulling their boat!  Of course, never having caught a big fish before, they thought it wasn't hard for their imaginations to play such a trick on them.  However, they were going so fast, Dad had to hold on to keep from flying out of the boat along with everything else!
  • Page 32- As the story goes, the boat went faster and faster.  Furthermore, it was claimed that fishermen came from miles around to witness this incredible event.  Mike clearly remembered Larry, Wayne and Bob cheering (or was it jeering?) from the shore.  "I'm going to catch this fish and win the trophy even if it takes me all night!"  declared a determined Mike.
  • Page 33- Picture illustrations
  • Page 34- More illustrations
  • Page 35 - To everyone's surprise, especially Larry, Wayne and Bob, Mike somehow managed to land the fish.  Even more unbelievable, he was proclaimed the winner of the fishing tournament.  "Mike! Wake up!" said Dad, shaking Mike out of his dream.  "I just entered us in the fishing tournament.  Let's go now, or we'll be late!"
