Lisa Yee's Book Title Contest

Lisa Yee, author of Millicent Min, Girl Genius and Stanford Wong Flunks Big-Time is running a book-title contest. Her rules:

1. Think of a title from a children's/middle grade/young adult book.

2. Change the FIRST LETTER of ONE of the words to make it into a whole new title.

3. Then add a sentence describing the new book.

My entry is for the book Six-Dinner Sid, by Inga Moore, called Six-Sinner Sid:

Sid, a proud, gluttonous cat, is furious that the seventh deadly sin, "lust," eludes him and vows to hunt down the vet who neutered him... right after Sid takes his mid-morning nap.

Your turn!

Thanks to Fuse#8 for the link.

I stole this from soemwhere, (I can't remember where) but I'd go with "The Berenstain Bears Shit In The Woods"

I think the title is pretty self-explanatory.

Hey Limpy99, Just out of curiosity, what was the original title?!

limpy99 said...

"The Berenstain Bears ------" fil in the blank. "Learn to Share" "Are Afraid of the Dark" whatever lesson they were imparting. I just always hated that book since the father is portrayed as a complete jackass.

The books were/are also didactic. The early books that featured the BB were pretty neat, a la Bears on Wheels and Inside Outside Upside Down.

oooh, i've always hated berenstein bears morality tales. i've also always hated the super-rhymey dr seuss books, the ones where he has to make up words in order to make rhymes. i guess i have little appreciation for the classics.

alkelda, i love your six-sinner sid. that's a winner right there. i can't come up with one myself, at least, not an interesting one, no matter how hard i try. obviously, my brain is not getting the proper amount of exercise.
