In Case You Missed It! Read "A Possible Solution" by Natalie Babbitt

The Exquisite Corpse Adventure
Episode 8 is LIVE on Read.Gov

Penned by Natalie Babbitt and illustrated by Timothy Basil Ering, you won't want to miss this most recent episode of the zany online story game, The Exquisite Corpse Adventure, available FREE to all readers on Read.Gov!

This delightful addition to the ongoing Exquisite Corpse Adventure introduces a new character--Sybil Hunch, the Misfortune-Teller--who seems to have walked right out a fairy tale.

The Exquisite Corpse Adventure is a reading and writing outreach project jointly sponsored by the Library of Congress and the NCBLA. Created by a dream team of eighteen award-winning authors and illustrators, a new episode is published every two weeks. The NCBLA has created an extensive educational resource center in conjunction with the talented professors and staff at the Butler Children's Literature Center at Dominican University to help parents, teachers, librarians, and homeschoolers maximize the educational opportunities presented by The Exquisite Corpse Adventure. And don't miss The Exquisite Prompt, the coordinating writing contest for kids of all ages sponsored by Reading Rockets, complete with its own set of enriching materials!

Be sure to check out these treasures by author Natalie Babbitt and illustrator Timothy Basil Ering:

And Stay Tuned! Episode 9 of The Exquisite Corpse Adventure will be revealed this Friday, January 15, to be written by Nikki Grimes and illustrated by Chris Van Dusen.
