Lisa Yee and the Fractured Book Title Extravaganza

If you have not been over to visit author Lisa Yee's Blog this week, you owe it to yourself to do so as soon as possible. Her contest of inventive titling and blurbing is a hoot and a half. Not to mention highly addictive. (Yes, I am one of the unstoppable multiple-enterers --but I dare you not to get just as wrapped up in it!) If you have not been there, I must inform you that the contest has officially closed, but I beg you to drop in anyway! Why? 1. The 200-plus titles and blurbs are completely hilarious. 2. You can easily make this a great game for your own friends/family members/book groups/classrooms! Such creativity! (Only 50 of the titles received multiple fractures-- the others are titles with a single fracture.) Such a celebration of books and wordplay! Such a lot of pure, crazy fun! Thanks to Lisa for inviting us all to join in!

AN UPDATE: Lisa and her celebrity judges have spoken -- this was the winning entry:

When Billy brings his latest fashion accessory to school, Mr Slinger helps the kindergarten class understand that it's okay for Billy to march to the beat of a different drummer.
