Let’s help keep stories alive and well. REL is searching around in a futurist world scavenging for books. Civilization has broken down, and people in North America live in small settlements. For most of REL’s life she’s been the only person her age in her village. She spends her free time reading and painting, and traveling the countryside looking for books. As a result of her travels, REL has accumulated quite a collection of abandoned animals, both domestic and exotic. Lately she’s not certain if she’s looking for books, animals, or something else entirely.
Can you write her story? Or maybe her next adventure? Some things to consider while writing or use to write about:
· What happened to civilization?
· What does REL stand for?
· The art she has painted on the wall is Manga style. Did she teach herself?
· How did she come to rescue a Russian tortoise that is native to central Asia?
· Who is Art, and where did he come from?
· Why is the hedgehog named ”Frog”?
Be as creative as you can and use descriptive language and/or graphics. Please turn in your finished stories by July 10th’s Summer Reading Program
