Two astronauts get involved in a race to the end of the universe to prove who has the fastest rocket ship once and for all! On their way our heroes encounter all sorts of strange creatures and end up in the last place they ever imagined!
This is a short story I created presented here in it's entirety.

The Adventure Begins!

A Pet Banana Production

Of course all of my stories are Pet Banana Productions! A Pet Banana Production is just a name I came up with for my projects. I spiffed up my logo for this exciting Sci-Fi adventure!

Page One

On a bright star filled night, there was a planet called Earth. And on this planet there was a rocket base.

Note: Our adventure starts at Earth Base One located, um on the Earth!

Page Two

On this rocket base there were two Astronauts, Astronaut One and Astronaut Two. “My rocket ship is faster than your rocket ship,” said Astronaut One. “No my rocket ship is faster than your rocket ship,” said Astronaut Two.

Note: I love the Thing One and Two from The Cat In The Hat!

Page Three

“You should race to see who is faster; you can have a space race to the END of The Universe! The Universe is a very BIG place, everyone and everything is inside it! No one I know of has ever been to the END of The Universe, so it will be an AMAZING space race!” said the Lady Astronaut.

Page Four

Note: The Lady Astronaut and I made a Star Chart so our adventurers would know where they were going!

Page Five

Note: A map of the Universe! What a handy item to have! That lady astronaut sure is helpful! This isn't confusing at all!!

Page Six

“I would join the space race too but I have broken my rocket ship,” the Lady Astronaut said. “So I will instead start the space race.”

Note: The Lady Astronaut's rocket ship is broken! That's too bad, it means she can't join the race!

Page Seven

The countdown began. Three Two One and the rocket ships blasted off on their AMAZING space race to the end of The Universe.

Note: But she is willing to lend a helping hand and get things started!

Page Eight

They raced away from the Planet Earth and into space!

Note: The race begins! I changed how I worded this many times! Who would have thought one little sentence could cause so much trouble?!?

Page Nine

They came to a bright red planet called Mars.

Note: Our heroes soon raced past Mars! But the local inhabitant holds them up for a little! Read on!

Page Ten

On this planet lived a Man made of ROCKS! “Where are you going in such a hurry?” asked the Man made of Rocks.
“We are on an AMAZING space race to the end of The Universe to see who is the fastest!” said Astronaut One and Astronaut Two.
“That is SUPER!” said the Man made of Rocks. “I shall join your space race because my rocket ship is the fastest of them all!”

Note: I wanted to have aliens with attributes of the different planets they are found on.

Page Eleven

The two Astronauts and the Man made of Rocks raced off through space on The Amazing Super Space Race to the end of The Universe!

Note: We pick up another contestant and if you noticed another adjective was added to the title of the race, now it is The AMAZING SUPER space!

Page Twelve

They came upon a gigantic planet called Jupiter!

Note: Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system and also a GAS giant! I wonder where this is going?

Page Thirteen

On this planet lived a Man made of GAS! “What are you doing going so fast past my planet?” asked the Man made of Gas.
“We are on an Amazing Super space race to the end of The Universe to see who is the fastest!” they shouted.
“That is GREAT!” said the Man made of Gas. “I shall join your space race because my rocket ship is the fastest of them all!”

Page Fourteen

And then the two Astronauts, the Man made of Rocks and the Man made of Gas raced off through space on The Amazing Super Great Space Race to the end of The Universe!

Note: And our adventure continues! Dig that GAS ship!

Page Fifteen

They raced past a planet with many rings around it called Saturn.

Note: It's pretty obvious that they get slowed down by inquisitive inhabitants while passing these planets. Maybe they should avoid them!

Page Sixteen

On this planet lived a Man made of RINGS! “Why are you going so fast past my planet?” shouted the Man made of Rings.
“We are racing to the end of The Universe to see who is the fastest!” they shouted. “I am the fastest,” said the Man made of Rings. “I will join your AWESOME space race!”

Page Seventeen

So the two Astronauts, the Man made of Rocks, the Man made of Gas and the Man made of Rings sped off into space on The Amazing Super Great Awesome Space Race to the end of The Universe.

Page Eighteen

They raced and raced and raced past moons and balls of ice and dust called comets! They also raced past a planet called Uranus.

Note: I don't know why but this is one of my favorite pics that I did on paint!

Page Nineteen

Then they came to an icy blue planet called Neptune.

Note: Oh! An icy planet, whatever cold be there? Guess we will find out soon enough!

Page Twenty

“What is all this about?” asked the Man made of ICE living on Neptune. “We are in a race, a space race to the end of The Universe to find out who is the fastest once and for all!” they shouted at the Man made of Ice.
“I am the fastest!” retorted the Man made of Ice. “I'll get my rocket ship and join this INCREDIBLE space race!”

Page Twenty One

They all zoomed away. Away and away they went. Away on The Amazing Super Great Awesome Incredible Space Race!

Note: Now it is an INCREDIBLE space race and boy have we picked up a motley crew!

Page Twenty Two

They zoomed past little lonely Pluto and many large rocks in space called asteroids. They raced and raced further out into space!

Page Twenty Three

They flew past stars and many brightly lit suns. Then they came to a planet that looked just like Mercury.

Note: There are all kinds of planets in the universe, I even bet some of them look JUST LIKE our planet Mercury! Hmmm?!?

Page Twenty Four

And then one that even looked like Venus! “So many things look the same in The Universe!” said Astronaut One, Astronaut Two, the Man made of Rocks, the Man made of Gas, the Man made of Rings and the Man made of Ice.

Page Twenty Five

“Where are all of you going in your rocket ships?” snorted the Lady made of LAVA on the planet that looks like Venus. “We are on a space race to the end of The Universe to prove who is the fastest of them all!” they all yelled out.
“I want in on this FANTASTIC space race!” she shouted out. “Then come and join us,” they said. “I most certainly will in the fastest rocket ship ever!” said the Lady made of Lava.

Page Twenty Six

And Zoom, Zoom, Zoom their rockets flew through space!
The Astronaut One, Astronaut Two, the Man made of Rocks, the Man made of Gas, the Man made of Rings, the Man made of Ice and the Lady made of Lava! All of them on The Amazing Super Great Awesome Incredible Fantastic Space Race!

Note: Wow! We have a lot of heroes now and a heroine!

Page Twenty Seven

Then they came upon a beautiful blue planet. “Look at how pretty this planet is,” they all said at the same time.
“We will surely be to the end of The Universe soon!”

Note: Another planet that looks just like our Earth! How amazing is that!?!

Twenty Eight

“Yes, yes it is a very pretty planet,” replied the Lady Astronaut.
“It is Earth! You have gone in a circle! I'm here first so I guess I WIN! I guess I have WON The Amazing Super Great Awesome Incredible Fantastic Space Race!”

Note: Now that is one smart lady!

The ever loving end!

The End!
I hope you enjoyed this adventure! I have other stories also, My first is A Pet Banana and the second I created is called Wendall And His Amazing Beard! Just recently I did a book of poems, "An Elephant is On My House And Other Poems By O. D. D. Cummings."
