extras from the Eric Carle Museum

In the room next to the Out of the Box exhibit was an exhibit on the golden anniversary of William Steig's picturebook Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, which really does have lovely illustrations. One thing that caught my eye, though, was in the middle of the room, a sort of random plot generator you could play with:

Write what it is like to live with ... a backpack ... that is very lonely
flip each section for a diff. story prompt

Write what it is like to live with ... a mall ... that is very lonely
flip each section for a diff. story prompt

Write what it is like to live with ... a mall ... that can fly
flip each section for a diff. story prompt

Create a postcard written by ... a mall ... that can fly

flip each section for a diff. story prompt

Go on then! I challenge you to try one!

Meanwhile, hugs all round, courtesy of William Steig and Sylvester:
