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 Night at the Theater
Billy and Bobby hated to go to the theater but they had no choice. Both of their parents were actors and couldn’t afford child care so for the past few years, the boys grew up in the theater. They had to sit quietly with nothing to do. They recognized many famous people even if they didn’t usually get to hang out with them. Only this night was going to be a special night and their parents hadn’t let them know this. There would be some special guests appearing on stage and their parents knew that the boys would be thrilled to meet these people. As the night went on, both boys were bored and quickly fell asleep. Imagine their surprise when they saw who was waking them up!! Read more to see who surprised them and what adventures were in store for them! (143 words)
