Imagine of just one small thing were different about your favorite book. It would change the entire plot, right? So, I’d like to propose a game. Take the title of a book, then change one small thing, even just one letter, and give me the new plot. Example:

Hurry Potter

Hurrypotter
Harry Potter has to run really fast all the time for no reason.

Give me your best/most ridiculous book titles and plots!

— Jack

    The Incorrigible Children Of Ashton Place – The Horrible Children Of Ashton Place
    What if Alexander, Beowulf and Cassiopeia became evil? I wonder what Penelope would do, and how much less Lady Constance would dislike them. Maybe Lord Fredrick would throw them out, but then of course Penelope wouldn’t really care, because they treated her horribly anyway.

    PS I know none of you have read this, but it’s an awesome series, so try it.

    Most people did Harry Potter, so I’ll try something a bit different.

    The Hunger Gates
    In the city of Panem, there is a sacred gate which only opens once every year. Behind this gate, there is a place rich with food and resources, which grants the District who finds it a year of pure happiness for their District. The Districts and towns are all poor, and must continue to feed from their stale bread and rice, until this gate opens. When this gate opens each year, the Capitol holds an event where all Districts must race to this gate, and win a year of fresh food and useful resources to make their town stronger. However, it is very dangerous to attempt to find the gate. Katniss Everdeen’s District is approaching fallout, and if she does not reach the Gate, her District will collapse- along with everything and everyone she holds dear.

    Hunger Games (age 12 and up)

      No offense, but I read a bit of Harry Potter and I feel that it isn’t very memorable. But I guess we’re all entitled to our own opinions, so take no notice of what I just said. Good day.

    How about THE COLLAR PURPLE about someone who always wears purple collared shirts/blouses/sweaters; and gets fashion citations on a regular basis.
    or
    THE TRUEST EYE about a girl whose eyes turn colors whenever she’s not telling the truth. Not everyone knows that she has this feature (only one parent, only some teachers and other adults).

    Oh, I like the sound of Purry Jackson. Do you know when it’s coming out? =) Great idea!!
    1. The Pictionary (Dictionary): A book when you look up words, it has pictures, instead of descriptions. Example: Pictionary. Then it’d have a picture of a pictionary.
    2. The Tail of Despereux: A tale about a mouse’s tail.
    3. Worrier Cats: A series of books about cats who worry too much.
    4. The Ghost (The Host): The story of how a ghost became a ghost.

    What about from the Lightning Theif to The Lighted Wreath. It’s about a child who is the son of Posiedon who has to find a Lighted Wreath to give to Zeus! Or maybe from The Five People You Meet In Heaven to The Five People I Met In Kevin. It’s about a boy getting eaten by a man named Kevin and winds up meeting some of his family members who had suddenly gone missing the day before! I tried! Hope you like them!
