A Hummingbird Adventure


By: Abbegail King Age: 8

Once upon a time, there lived two beautiful hummingbirds. Their names were Flappy and Flutter. Flutter was expecting a new baby. Flappy, her husband, asked, “What shall we name him?”
“Maybe when he comes, we will know,” Flutter replied.
Soon the new, little baby hummingbird arrived. “Oh,” said Flutter, “I wonder what he will like to do. I bet he will like going on adventures.”
“That's it,” both Flutter and Flappy said together. “Adventure. That is what we should name him!"
So, the new baby hummingbird was named Adventure, and his parents were quite sure he would go on many adventures in the coming years.
Time passed, and four years later, Flutter was taking Adventure to Hummingbird Playschool. He asked his mother, “Mom, why do you have to carry me,?”
“Because little Adventure, you do not know how to fly yet,” Flutter explained
“Well, when I do learn to fly, I am going to go on a really neat adventure,” Adventure stated proudly.
“I think learning how to fly is a big enough adventure,” Flutter replied.
One year later, Adventure asked, “Mom, can you teach me to fly?”
“Oh, I guess I can. Adventure, I will teach you how to fly,” Flutter responded.
The day had finally arrived. Flutter took Adventure up into a tree and said, “Adventure, spread out your wings and flap, flap, flap.”
That is just what Adventure did. He flapped his wings very hard and he began to fly. “Look at me Mom,” Adventure yelled
“Great Adventure! You are flying!”
Adventure flew and flew. He really enjoyed getting around quicker and easier. He became used to flying around his home and decided it was time to fly a little farther. “Mom and Dad,” said Adventure. “I am going to fly around and get some supper.”
“Okay,” said Flutter and Flappy.
So, away he went. He found a beautiful field of large, fresh, bright red flowers. He ate and ate the sweet nectar. He got so full of hummingbird food that he decided to take a nap. He slept peacefully.
Meanwhile, a deer was leaping in the field. He spotted a small beautiful flower and decided to take a closer look. Adventure woke up and two very large eyeballs were right next to him.
“HELP!” screamed Adventure.
“Oh no, did I scare you? Where are my manners?” the deer said. “I didn't introduce myself. My name is Leapster and I am from London. What is your name?”
“M-m-my n-n-name is A-A-Adventure,” he responded.
“Oh, don't be scared Adventure,” Leapster replied. “Where are you from?”
“I am from here,” Adventure said. “Would you like to go to my house? We could have a party to celebrate making new friends.”
“Sure,” Leapster responded. “I would be delighted to visit your house and I am very happy to have a new friend.”
So, the two best friends went back to the big oak tree and had a very nice party. Adventure's first adventure was a great one which gave him a friend he would spend many days with for the next many years.

Abby,

That was a really great story and you did such a wonderful job putting your imagination into words. Being able to express your thoughts with words on paper is a real talent. I will be waiting for more stories about Adventure and his family. Keep up the good work. Good Luck, Dean

Fantastic story...tell me more.
by: Crazy Cuz

What a wonderful, beautiful, and really, really cool story...I can't wait for the next story. Who knows where Adventure will adventure off to next...or who he will meet...or what they will do. You have to keep writing. I wonder if Adventure will ever go to the beach...maybe to visit his Aunt Flighty. I hear she likes to sing...or hum...her favorite song. You know..."I Love Beach Flowers" I bet we could shag to that one.

Loved your story
by: Martha Gaillard

Dear Abbe, I love hummingbirds, and your great story helps me love them more. I agree with the others that you chose good names for them. You probably don't remember me, but your parents and all of the family are very dear friends of mine. Because you love hummingbirds (some of God's mighty creations), I know I love you too! Keep up the great work. I will pass this along to one of your mom's good friends! I love you and Jesus loves you. Since HE knows everything we do, I'm sure HE also loves your writing about his creation.
Your new friend,
Martha from Hendersonville

Great Story by a great Girl
by: Jaye

I sure did enjoy reading your story! It made me want to be there in the story and see Adventure and Leapster playing and having fun. That is what makes a great writer. You have always wrote the most interesting stories and we have always loved reading them. Keep it up! Lots of love, Uncle Jaye

Way to Go!
by: "Aunt" Gale

You have a wonderful talent Honey! I think you have a great vocabulary for your age and have just the right way of putting the words "together". I haven't seen you since you were small, but Momma sends me pictures and MawMaw tells me all about you. Books allow readers to make pictures in their minds and I could do that with your story! I can't wait to see all the wonderful books you are going to write.

LOVED YOUR STORY
by: Aunt Jana

What a wonderful story!! I enjoyed so much reading it. I think that this would be a wonderful book for all ages to read. I didn't even want the story to end, it was so interesting. You always have had such a gift for writing and I have always enjoyed all your stories. I loved the names you chose for your hummingbirds. I especially loved the name you gave the baby hummingbird (Adventure). How creative you are! This has to make anyone who reads this story want to read more stories by you. The way you ended the story with Adventure and Leapster becoming best friends was precious just like our Abbey Girl. Please keep writing!!!
I love you bunches and buches. Aunt Jana

A Wonderful Story
by: Aunt Faye Courtney and Jordan

Hi Abbigail, This is a really neat story. We love watching hummingbirds, too. We do not have very many in our backyard but our neighbors do. So we get to watch them. We also watch Phoebe Allens website to see them in the nest I will send it to your dad and he can let you see them. It's wonderful how the mom takes care of the little ones and doesn't even squish them. Wish we lived closer so we could watch them with you. Your story is great and I love that they both made a new friend so easily. Love you lots, say Hi to your family from us and come visit us in Oregon. It would be great to have you and your family for a visit..
Love and hugs to all of you
Aunt Faye, Courtney and Jordan
