Back of the Book Blurb #86 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 Nonsensical Nanny

Andy, Mae, and Barney were bored.

Tomorrow summer vacation would start and they were already bored. With both of their parents working, they knew that they would have nothing else to do but sit around and watch TV all summer. Usually they had old Mrs. Thompson for a babysitter and she liked to watch her soap operas every afternoon. They had to sit in the living room where she could keep an eye on them.

Suddenly there was a knock on the door! Who could it be? They weren’t expecting anyone. When they opened the door, their jaws dropped!

In front of them was a lady with a patchwork dress on and a strange hat with feathers and ribbons. She excitedly introduced herself as their nanny for the summer. Since they had all summer, she had big plans for them and it was going to be fun! (147 words)
