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 Island Adventure
When Bobby and Billy took the boat out for a ride, they had no idea what was going to happen to them! They thought they would be back before their parents ever knew they had left so they didn’t tell anyone where they were going. Before long, the motor died on the boat and the current just took them out to sea. Tired from worrying, they both fell asleep and woke up the next morning when the boat scraped sand. They found themselves on an island in the middle of nowhere. They were so hungry that the decided to look for food. They saw that there were crabs all over the place and saw that they would have plenty of food. Next, they needed to figure out some shelter. Read more to see how they survived on the island and how long they were there before being rescued. (148 words)
