J Hall | 4 comments I read this as a child sometime during the 80's…probably 84-89. I don't remember what the cover looked like, but I believe all the pictures were black and white drawings. I think there was one line accompanying each photo that was intended to be the first line of a story, and kids were supposed to write their own story to go along with the picture. The one picture that really comes to mind was a drawing of a few houses, the one in the middle was starting to blast off out of the ground with flames coming out of the bottom, like from a rocket. I can't remember the line that went with the picture exactly, but I believe it was something like the kids that lived there had noticed there were weird electronic things growing in the walls. I would like to find this for my kids to use :). Thanks so much!
