When Arlo's sitting on the Dumpster lid, he hears something and feels the lid move. He assumes there's some Dumpster monster down below. One of the teachers at Hillcrest School in Salmon Arm had her students listen to what Arlo thought the monster might look like. Then, she turned them loose and had them draw the monster in the Dumpster. What a great idea! The students' attention to detail was amazing.
Thanks to Joc, Hillcrest's Librarian Extraordinaire, for taking the picture.
If you have any other spectacularly creative spin-off projects relating to any of my books, I'd love to hear about them. Just send an email!
Also, don't forget about the Klutzhood study guide, full of all sorts of bizarre activities and questions, available at the Orca Books website.
