Back of the Book Blurb #12 Challenge

In Back-of-the-Book Blurb Friday # 12 from Sioux's Page, Sioux offers this challenge.
She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

·                The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title).
·                The genre is wide-open.
·                Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post.
·                Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs. 
·                You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

The Stranger

Emily and Amy were skipping down the street when they saw him. They stopped and stared until he looked down and said, “Weren’t you taught that it was rude to stare?”

Emily said, “But we’ve never seen anyone wearing what you are. Why are you wearing that?”

He looked down and said, “Well, young miss, it wouldn’t be good to go around without any clothes! “Emily and Amy giggled.

Then he asked, “Where am I?” and they told him that he was in their town called Cherryville and asked him to come home to meet their mom. A little unsure, he agreed.

He wanted to know where he was and what year it was. He had to figure out a way to get home because he really missed his family. He was tired of having to explain who he was to strangers. (141 words)

Pat--I had initially thought of a time-traveling story, too. I think your story has lots of possibilities.

He's definitely not of this world!
