This weekend’s Trifecta Writing Challenge is to retell our favorite book in 33 words.
There once was a girl named Anne Shirley
Whose hair was carrot-red curly
Went to live at Green Gables
And then switched the tables
And made them all love her quite purely
Until next time . . . I love you

Excellent. I loved it.
Thanks Tim. 😀
One of my favorite books! You made me giggle with glee! Well done! Now I want to read it again. Thank you.
Thanks Betty! I want to reread it too. I think the opening paragraph to Anne of Green Gables is pure genius! 😀
Thank you Lisa! 😀
And a limerick too! where were you when I had to read this in high school?
Oh I guess Anne of Green Gables would be “had to read” if you’re a guy! I wish we would have gotten to read it,instead of Great Expectations which I think Dickens was overly optimistic when he titled it.
Love it! And I love that you didn’t get sentimental. Making this a limerick was pure genius.
Oh! Thank you Christine!! 😀
I love the way you did this absolutely brilliant. 😀
Mags! Thank you so much! 😀
I liked this very much.
Amelia! I’m so glad, thank you! 😀
Perfectly perfect. I love this. How you did this is truly brilliant!
Sandra! You are so nice! Thank you! 😀
Clever is a word invented to describe Linda Vernon.
Your good cheer is felt all the way to the east coast.
Ronnie thank you so much! ❤ 😀
I love that you chose to write it as a limerick! This was fun to read, which is exactly how I felt about the book. 🙂
Oh thank you dberonilla! We’re kindred spirits!! 😀
Thanks for linking up with Trifecta this weekend. A limerick? Seriously? Well, color me impressed. This is a great response to the prompt.
Hope you’ll come back on Monday for our 33rd Challenge Celebration!
Can’t wait!! 😀
Fantastic! I didn’t think a limerick would be possible. Shows what I know 😉
Ah! Thank you Braintomahawk. Never underestimate the power of a limerick, I guess! 😀
A perfect poem! This makes me want to reread the book as well. I tried to get Tyler to rent the minseries and watch them with me but he can’t bring himself to do it!
Thanks honey. Well, I think Tyler would like it. Dad like it. And there was no science or golf or engineering it it at all. I think it really surprised him how much he enjoyed it! I think Tyler will like it too.
You are probably right! He likes Pride & Prejudice and Mommy Dearest. His favorite line to yell is “Don’t F**k with me fellas!” I might just rent it this weekend. He can pretend to work while actually watching it.
Clever and catchy. Nicely done!
And congrats on the 3rd place win at Trifecta. 😀
Thank you so much. And I definitely have to go over and check out “love the bad guy because maybe all they needed was a hug!” HA! Love it! 😀
Excellent!– tho I don’t remember anybody switching tables. And I’m a little surprised you didn’t mention the Wizard or the Wicked Witch, and how Shirley Ann clicked her heels to get back to New Hampshire. Oh, well. Yup, great book… : P
LOL 😀 . . . no wait . . . what?! The wizard, the wicked witch and Shirley Ann are all characters in Moby Dick. Yoo-hoo! Earth to Mark! 😀
I love limericks! Congrats on 3rd place!
Thank you so much Andrea! 😀

Thanks Lizzie! (And to celebrate I’m buying a round of woohoo’s for everyone! And there’s cake too!) Yay!
