Run on over to Lisa Yee's blog and check out her Bodacious Book Title Contest. Here are the rules:
1. Think of a title from a children's/middle grade/young adult book.
2. Change the FIRST LETTER of ONE of the words to make it into a whole new title.
3. Then add a sentence describing the new book.
Here are my entries:
Original Title: Duck for President
New Title: Puck for President
Summary: Upon escaping from the pages of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Puck finds himself in a land ruled by a ridiculous republican leader and, convinced he can do better, decides to run for President.
Original Title: Curious George
New Title: Furious George
Summary: Captured by a man in a yellow hat and spirited away to New York, the monkey escapes, climbs tall buildings, and swats at flying machines.
Original Title: Heat
New Title: Seat
Summary: A little league all star pitcher "loses the strike zone" and finds the only position left for him to play is bench-warmer.
