A Book in Pictures: Summer Break Reading Activity #9

For this activity we are to select pictures that represent a story we recently read. I chose The Stuff of Legend: Into the Dark which is sort of ironic since it's a graphic novel.

Once upon a time, there was a little boy...

who the Bogeyman snatched from his bed.

His toys were very distraught. But the Colonel marshaled their forces and marched....

into The Dark unknown world of the Bogeyman to rescue the boy.

The toys fought bravely against the The Dark's forces,

playing the Bogeyman's games,

learning to get along and work together.

But where the  boy is... nobody knows.

The Stuff of Legend: Into the Dark is written my Mike Raicht and Brian Smith, Illustrated by Charles and Paul Wilson III. Here's my review.


  1. Oooooo, I see there is a picture of the game Mouse Trap. I loved that game, but rarely got to play it. My aunt never wanted to take the time to set it up. It took too long. :)

  2. I love the way that you recreated this story! Such imagination.

  3. Oh this is great and I loved Mouse Trap. so fun

  4. Mouse Trap was always fun until someone set off the trap prematurely with an elbow or stray dice. lol.

  5. Love the pictures and love stories about the Boogeyman (shiver).
