Back of the Book Blurb #47 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux 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 Hunt for the White Pony

Sylvester heard of the White Pony and knew that if he could find it, he would be rich even though everyone made fun of him! After reading his grandfather’s journals, he decided that he had to hunt for it. With his best friend, Tweety (an accomplished photographer). they got out the maps and compass to plot a course for their adventure. This journey would take them to places that people had never heard of or seen! Sylvester was so excited that he couldn’t wait to get started. But the key was in the planning. Everything had to be just right from the start. Unfortunately, not everything goes as planned but the adventure is exciting. Read on to see what happens to Sylvester and Tweety on their journey. Do they find the white pony? What is the White Pony? Does Sylvester become rich? (142 words)

Pat--I had to laugh when I saw Tweety's name, after Sylvester's. You took this off into a unique direction, for sure.

Thanks for playing along.

Sorry if this is a duplicate, my computer locked up after I hit publish.

Now I'm wondering what the White Pony could be, if it's not a real pony! I, too, liked the pairing of Tweety with Sylvester. I was just thinking about Tweety yesterday, for a reference to his "grandma" for an upcoming blog post.
