WORTH THE TELLING

Somehow this gem of a book was buried on the shelves. I snatched it up before our summer graduation ceremony and took it along.


The premise behind the book is that two authors wrote a short story using the same piece of original art by Scott Hunt. What a terrific idea for demonstrating to students the importance of individual point of view and to present them with two stories that can readily be compared and contrasted. Both Sarah Dessen and Ellen Wittlinger write stories based upon a drawing featuring a large donut atop a donut shop, However, that is where the similarity ends. The same is true for stories written by these couplings: Nancy Werlin and Alex Flinn, M.T. Andersonm and William Sleator and Gene Brewer and Bruce Coville.
