• NAME THAT STORYBOOK, GAME 1: July 18, 2010

    Here’s the game: I post a paragraph from a book in my library. You guess which book it’s from. Post your answer as a reply. First correct answer posted on Tumblr wins!

    Here’s the catch: So you don’t go and Google the answer - aha, thought you were going to be clever, eh? - I’m rewriting the paragraph in my own words.

    Here’s the prize: First person to guess the book I’ve pulled this paragraph from will win the glory of having their name posted on the List of Winners, which will be included in every installment of this game in the future as it progresses. That’s right: EVERLASTING GLORY.

    Here’s the deadline: Tuesday the 20th, afternoon.

    Ready?

    Here we go.

    “Annoying boy, you’ve messed up my dream. I had drifted off into a violet fog and discovered my childhood again. There were sparkling gates and bejeweled flowers. If I shut my eyes, I’ll go back there.”

    HINT: It’s a children’s book.
