Back of the Book Blurb #18 Challenge

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 Wolf

Mabel loved going for walks and when she went to the dog park, she loved to check out the new dogs that visited. So far, none had appealed to her until one day she saw the dog of her dreams! She saw him from a distance because he was leaving the dog park as they arrived. The next few visits, her dream dog wasn’t there. Then one day, she saw him. She couldn’t wait to get a good sniff and her dream would come true! She ran up to his hind quarters and sniffed but something just wasn’t right. Then she came around to the front of him and was speechless! It was a wolf in sheep’s clothing! Her dream dog was an imposter! Well, she was going to let him have it! Read on to find out what Mabel did next and why he was in a costume.  (149 words)

Pat--"...the dog of her dreams." What a funny phrase. I love that you took this in a completely different direction than I would have even imagined.

As always, thanks for playing along.

Oh, no! That imposter almost pulled the wool over Mabel's eyes! Thank goodness his butt gave him away.
