    Hunger Games

    Killer kids compete against crazy characters. Careless council controls competition. Can Katniss kill all/come out clean?

      Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus

      Public plug prohibits pigeon piloting public pick-upper. Premeditating and pesky pigeon persists and petitions piloting. Pensive pigeon’s prayer precluded; possible portage post? Parable pleases people and pigeons proportionately.

    Blueberries For Sal

    Blueberries, berry-pickers, black bears, bravo! Bantam beginners bumble, befuddle begetters! But by back of book, babies bide beatifically by beast and bosom.

  3. Karin

    The Hobbit

    Tricksy treasure thief treks tirelessly, tackles timidity, to terminate in the taunting of a terrible titan. Tremendous tour de force!

  4. Lotho

    Lord of the Loop:

    Land of legend, lore and lore-master, this lithe libretto is a long-laster. A life of learning lies in line. For our little leige is left lone limitation. For in lease of leaf, in leiu of legendary law, or in listen of lyrical Lothlorien’s leafy luster, last is libation. For as long is the lure, as lone is the leader.

  5. Eric Right

    Hunger Games

    Arrows and adventure arrive at annual arena antagonism. Adolescents attack alike adversaries attempting absolute acquiescence. Authorities amused, admire abilities, as audience accepts authoritarian administration.

  6. Margaret

    Moms and moppets maneuver Maine mountain, making menu of mazarine morsels. Mischievous mayhem materializes: moppets misplaced! Maternal mistrust materializes — maybe a monster! Mercifully, mutatis mutandis, mistakes are mitigated.
