Back of the Book Blurb #72 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 Attention Getter

Dobby was amazed what his humans will do for attention.

He watched the mother dress in fancy clothes and put lots of make-up on to get her husband’s attention. The husband was so focused on his job and was busy trying to get his boss’s attention. Ginny was just a little baby and cried all the time so she learned how to get everyone’s attention. Little Jimmy wanted attention too so he had done something really bad.

Dobby knew what Jimmy had done and that he had done it to get his parents’ attention. Jimmy would be in so much trouble when they found out what he had done.  If Dobby could talk, he could find a way to help Jimmy. He could tell the adults what happened and that Jimmy didn’t mean to do it.

So, Dobby had to figure out a way to help Jimmy.  (147 words)

You can see from Dobby's face that he's all about helping people, and wanting everyone to get along.

That's a relief. For a minute, I was afraid that Dobby had left something on the rug to get attention for himself...

Pat--This sounds like a Lassie episode. What is it Lassie? It's Jimmy? Jimmy's stuck in a well?

You took this into a direction I hadn't even thought of. Thanks for playing along.
