Back of the Book Blurb #9 Challenge

In Back-of-the-Book Blurb Friday # 9 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 Unexpected Guest

Morris was home alone and his humans had gone out for dinner. He loved when they were gone because he could explore to his heart’s content. They had put up the Christmas tree but they hadn’t finished wrapping the presents. He could bat at the tinsel without being yelled at and he could play in the empty bags without them knowing it. So, he got in several bags to see how he liked them. Then he picked one and was trying to find a comfortable spot when he heard a noise. The living room window slowly opened. He saw the human head stick in the room looking around to see if anyone was there. Morris peeked out of the bag and was so surprised to see who was coming in the window! It wasn’t Santa! Join Morris and seeing who the unexpected guest was! (144 words)

Pat--This might make a great children's book. I'd love to see how Morris and Santa get along. Thanks for playing along.
