The Hunger Games

By: Emily

Some Ponderous Pandas created a Hunger Games blog. We made it because we all enjoyed the book and the movie. The Hunger Games is about 24 tributes who go into an arena to fight to the death. On our blog we have some jokes, haikus about the characters, meet the game makers, about the blog authors and various polls where you can vote for your favorite characters.
