Text and Images from Johnny Jetpack

johnny jetpack

Johnny Johnson knew that one day he would fly among the stars—
he dreamed of someday flying out past Jupiter and Mars.
“But how am I to do this?” Johnny said, then scratched his head,
then he leapt down from his dresser and bounced high up off his bed.
And for nearly two whole seconds, Johnny felt like he could fly,
‘til he flopped down on his backside without really knowing why.
“I will fly someday—I swear it! I’ll be up there someday soon,”
Johnny muttered as he stared out through his window at the moon.

He was older now, and wiser. He was growing up quite fast.
And later on that night, his grandpa came by for a spell,
and he brought with him a present he had wrapped up very well.
And as Johnny opened up the box, he found a great surprise;
it was something so fantastic, he could not believe his eyes.
“OH, THANK YOU!” shouted Johnny, then he hugged his grandpa tight, then he grabbed the box, ran up the stairs, and disappeared from sight.

 

johnny jetpackThen down the hall he ran, into his room, and closed the door, then quite quickly dumped the contents of the box out on the floor. And there it was—the thing he needed most to help him fly; it was a jetpack with two jets to help him soar up through the sky. And with it came a helmet, and a black utility belt, which he quickly wrapped around his waist to see how snug it felt.

Then he put the helmet on his head, and next, picked up the pack, and with a shoulder through each harness, strapped it tightly to his back. Then behind him, rather suddenly, his door swung open wide, and his grandpa, who had come to talk, took three short steps inside. Then ol’ Grandpa slowly knelt, and asked for Johnny’s full attention; for it seemed he had some things he thought were quite well worth a mention.

    Great story! Read it to my four year old. He loved every second. He asked me to tell the author the following…”He wrote a good book. I want him to write another good book.” Suffice it to say, you brought a smile to his face and that is what a good story should do. We love Johnny Johnson and hope his dream comes true!
