Today, in English please deign a back-cover for the book. Write a blurb to describe what the book is about. 


What is a blurb?

A blurb is the text on back cover of a book. It is a summary of the story. It aims to get the reader interested in buying or reading the book.


What makes a good blurb?

  • They are short in length 
  • They use attention- grabbing words and phrases
  • They often use questions and exclamations
  • They often use three full stops at their ends (an ellipsis) to leave the reader asking questions...
