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:

Postcard from a mall that can fly
I wish you could see what it looks like from up here - I can see the piece of ground I tore up when I left, all raw and ragged at the edges, and the trees I broke soaring up. I loved that - that moment I ripped into the air. And I feel so strong up here, away from all that clatter and grubbiness and the daily, everyday petty exchanges of ground-bound life.
But I wish you could be here too; I bet you'd love it, all of you people who used to bring life in me. It is beautiful here, so clear and unsullied. I wish you could see it - it's so different, with just clear air all around. It's different and odd, to be alone up here with just emptiness.

You're welcome! :)

(Aren't you awake very early? Or do I have my time zones mixed?)
