Printz Award-winning author Meg Rosoff wrote her latest book, There is No Dog, by doing what she calls “thinking sideways.” To do this Meg says, “You have to train yourself to tilt your head a little bit to the side and squint at the world; to see it from a slightly different angle.” For the Thinking Sideways Contest, we challenged you to turn one of your favorite stories upside-down.
