Mike Smith was so excited! His
゛big" day had finally arrived! He
had reminded everyone in Pensacola
about his birthday on May nth,
for a long time. Mike had not
wanted a single person to forget
this special day. Today he was 8.
For months now, Mike had been
dreaming day and night about his
party. He had asked his friends
again and again, ゛Do you suppose my
birthday will ever get here?" There
were many names on his invitation
list. Mike hoped Larry,Wayne and
Bob could come. He was really
looking forward to a great time !
It seemed to Mike that his dreams
always started out the same way.
He would be sitting in the middle
of an enormous room all dressed up
for his party. Beside him was a
key ring with 10 magic keys, each a
different color. Around him would
be doors, and Mike knew that the
keys were there to open those
matching, colored doors.
In each dream, Mike would find many
happy, wonderful surprises behind
the locked doors... except for one.
There were 11 doors, but only 10
keys. Mike wondered how he would
get into that last room. There
wasn't even a knob on the door.
Every time he would start to search
for the missing key, he would wake
up. Oh well! Maybe Larry, Wayne
and Bob could help him.
In his dreams, Mike liked to start
with the blue key that unlocked the
blue door. The blue room looked as
if it held a billion bouncing
balloons. There were balloons of
different shapes, colors and sizes,
and Mike had fun walking through
them. There was one balloon that
had to be the biggest, bluest
balloon he had ever seen. This was
so much fun, Mike raced on to the
next door !
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 Mike to eat all by
himself. 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
Mike. He wanted to show all these
beautiful cakes to Larry, Wayne and
When Mike opened the cherry red
door, he almost fell backward! What
a fun dream! In front of him was a
monstrous mountain of melting ice
cream. There were cherries, nuts,
whipped cream and syrup running down
the sides. Mike thought it would be
so much fun to slide down this kind
of mountain. What a delightful,
delicious time he would have !
Mike giggled when he opened the
orange door to the clown room.
Inside he 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, Mike laughed until
he could laugh no more.
The green room had so many presents
that Mike had trouble opening the
door. He wondered if any of the
gifts were from Larry,Wayne and
Bob. He was hoping that one of
those boxes would have something
very nice he could play with on his
birthday.Maybe it was the
gigantic green gift box! Should he
open it? No, he must hurry to the
Mike jumped up and down when he
opened the glittering gold door and
found a golden room full of rides
for his birthday party. In the
middle of the room was a beautiful
gold merry-go-round. Surrounding
it, Mike could see the ponies with
their golden saddles, a train ride
and even a small ferris wheel !
A pink door opened up into a candy
room. Mike was amazed at all the
candy. He 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 he had ever seen. Mike knew
that he would have to share this candy
with Larry, Wayne and Bob or he would
have a big tummyache.
Behind the brown door were many,
many huggable animals. Mike 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 Mike.
Others were so small they would fit
in his hand. If he put all these
animals in his room, he might not be
able to find his bed. Wow, that
would be neat !
When Mike opened the yellow door,
he found a yellow room filled with
games fit for a king. Mike 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. Mike knew exactly which
games he would play first in the
Using the shiny silver key, Mike
opened the silver door and saw
colorful streamers decorating every
inch of the tenth room. He also
found everything else he needed for
his birthday party. Here were the
plates, cups, napkins, forks and
spoons. For his guests, there were
stacks and stacks of silver whistles,
silver bells, horns, blowers,
birthday hats and other party favors.
He knew that he was ready for his
birthday party when he saw the squirt
Mike found himself in front of the
last door that had no key. He leaned
against the door to peek through the
keyhole and, as he did, the door
silently opened. He looked inside.
The rainbow-colored room was ready
for a birthday party with something
from each of the other ten rooms, but
Mike was puzzled. Something was
missing! How could a birthday party
be fun if you were all alone? He
became very sad.
Suddenly many voices sang out
゛Surprise !" and ゛Happy Birthday !" at
the same time. Mike Smith blinked
his eyes and immediately stopped
daydreaming. He turned around and
saw Larry,Wayne and Bob. This was
his best birthday surprise of all !
Now he 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
8 and have a birthday celebration !
Happy Birthday !
