The hungry book






Kenneth Bøgh Andersen wrote this shortstory "Slut/ The End" About a boy who is not a big reader, 'cause he is dyslexic. One day he finds a tiny book with the title "The End/ Slut", or he thinks thats the title anyway. The story is about a boy who finds a tiny book ...... all of a sudden the book comes alive, the lines of text transforms into a face and long tentakles of types are shooting out from the page, holding on to the boy and drags him into the book where he is being devoured. The book closes again and the title shows up to be "Sult /Starving" instead of "Slut/ The End". At the end of the story a girl comes around and pick up the book and read "A girl picks up the book and start reading..."
The story is part of Læseraketten 2010 and will be distributed to all elementary schools in Denmark
