Loony Blurbs is this thing hosted by the wonderful Emily at The Loony Teen Writer. Basically, the idea is to make up a blurb based purely on the book’s title.
I have never read any of these books.
In fact, I’ve never heard of any of these books.
This should be interesting.
Stitching Snow, by R.C. Lewis
Bianca’s mother is well known for her cross-stitches. Not only does she make any pattern requested, but she can do it using the weather.
Bianca longs for the talent her mother has, the ability to incorporate the weather into her cross-stitch patterns, unfortunately, though, her skill seem a little lacking. So when the snow starts to fall at the beginning of the season, Bianca sees her opportunity to learn.
But snow is the hardest weather to control. Has Bianca gone too far?
The Secret Hum of a Daisy, by Tracy Holczer
No humming is allowed in Daisy’s father’s house. Not since her mother mysteriously disappeared many years ago.
But Daisy loves humming, and so when her father isn’t listening, she hums to the daisies on her windowsill. And one day, something incredible happens:
The daisies hum back.
Midnight Thief, by Livia Blackburn
Midnight. The time the day changes.
Henry has never been a fan of midnight. Why can’t it just be the same day, over and over? Something needs to be done.
So Henry begins to seek out the legendary Masters of Time. Because if anyone can help him steal midnight, it will be them.
Worry Warts, by Morris Gleitzman
When people are worried, they grow warts.
The more they worry, the more warts they have.
So when Sophia meets Anthony, a boy who has no warts at all, she is very confused. How is this possible? Does he actually never worry at all?
But as Sophia gets to know Anthony, she realises that becoming free of the warts is nowhere near as easy and Anthony makes it seem.
The Chocolate War, by Robert Cormier
First, there was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a tale of bravery and daring.
Julia has grown up hearing the legends of young Charlie’s defeat the evil Willy Wonka, claiming the chocolate factory for his own and bringing peace to the land.
Now, a war to rival Charlie’s has begun. And it’s only a matter of time before the rebels bring down the chocolate factory, and all the world descends once again into chaos.
Unless Julia can find the great chocolate bar of power. But what can one girl do against an entire army?
Only time will tell.
Well, there we go, another Loony Blurbs. Which one was your favourite? Let me know in the comments.

Hahaha that’s brilliant! The worry warts sound gross, and I think I laughed the hardest at snow stitching. Fantastic!
Aww, thanks 🙂

These are all so good! How on earth am I supposed I choose a favourite? Probably The Chocolate War, The Secret Hum of a Daisy, or Midnight Thief. But really, they’re all fantastic. 🙂
Oh goodness I’ll read The Secret Hum of a Daisy any day. Soon as you write that, let me know 🙂
