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 Secret of the Secret Box
Billy knew the answer was somewhere close by but he just needed to see a sign. He had been looking for months for Uncle Jimmy’s missing key. During the funeral, someone took the key and who knows how much money his crazy uncle had hidden away. He heard some of the kinfolk talking about it at the buffet table. Jimmy loved to squirrel away money in a locked box. Because Jimmy was paranoid, he didn’t tell anyone where he hid the box but had secret signs that would remind him where it was hidden. Billy had been following the signs for months. The last sign Billy found was a statue pointing its finger towards the antique store. He had to get to the box before the person with the key found it. Read on to find out if he finds the box and what was in it. (147 words)
