Sample Chapter

Once upon a time there were two friends, Popcorn and Jellybean, who were just plain bored. They never did anything fun and they never went anywhere exciting.

It was a Saturday afternoon, and the sun was shining brightly.

The two friends were hanging out in the front yard deciding what to do on such a beautiful day.

Popcorn looked over at Jellybean and said, “Hey, JB, why don’t we go on an adventure?”

Jellybean thought about it for a second and said, “Are you sure?”

“Yes, come on!” exclaimed Popcorn.

“But where would we go?” asked Jellybean.

“I’m not really sure. I never thought about it before,” said Popcorn.

“Maybe we could just follow that path into the forest and see where it takes us.”

“I don’t know, Popcorn, it seems kind of scary. We’ve never followed that path beyond the first big tree. What if we get lost?”

“We’ll just bring lots of supplies with us so we won’t have to worry,” said Popcorn.

“Hmm. And if we run out of stuff, we’ll just come back home?” replied Jellybean.

“Exactly!” exclaimed Popcorn.

“Well, okay! Let’s do it then!” shouted a nervous, but excited, Jellybean.

“Hey, why don’t we invite Raisin!” said Jellybean.

“That’s a great idea, but I’m pretty sure he went on a camping trip for a whole week. We’ll just tell him all about it when we get back,” replied Popcorn.

Later that afternoon, Popcorn and Jellybean started making a list of all the supplies they thought they might need for their adventure.

And since they only planned on being gone a couple of days, their list was not too long. Little did they know that the first couple of days would only be the beginning of their journey.

By the end of the day, as the sun started to set, the two friends looked over all of the items they had assembled and agreed they had more than enough to last for a short trip.

“I can hardly wait for tomorrow to arrive!” said Popcorn.

“Me, too!” said a very excited Jellybean. “Maybe we should eat an early dinner and go to sleep soon ’cause I think we’ll need all of our energy for our adventure.”

After a meal of hot biscuits and a bowl of soup, the future explorers said their good nights, closed their eyes, and were soon sleeping deeply.
