Covers By Katie
Okay, so I totally stole this idea from Sara at Forever 17 Books, who got the idea from an article on Babble called Judging a Book by Its Cover: A 6-year-old Guesses What Classic Novels Are All About.  I just discovered her lovely segment, and I immediately requested forced my own five-year-old daughter Katie to provide me with some of her own cover art artwork and then asked her what she thought the book was about.

This week, Katie gave me her take on the following book:

"The boy and girl are running away from their house and it was a really cloudy day."

From what I know of this book -- which is actually very little because I haven't read it yet, though it is coming up soon in the review pile -- I think that's a very good guess.  =)

Have you read this book or do you plan to?  What do you think of Katie's guess at the premise?  

Did your little darling create a work of art based on a book this week? If so, be sure to link up with Sara over at Forever 17 Books.


  1. Katie made a really good guess! And her picture looks great. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I think it's a good guess too! It does look like they are running... This is my next read so I'll soon find out!

  3. They are running away, so that's a win. It's about what I would guess too. I don't know much about this book yet, but I'm curious to learn more about it. I like the blurb, and love the cover.

  4. I LOVE these posts. They are so funny. I especially love the cover art. I tried to get my 3 year old to do one, but she just looked at me like I was a lunatic. I think she needs to be older. My husband is pretty good/snarky at it though. I keep hearing that this book has a frustrating love triangle, so I will be staying far away from it. However, I have met Erin Bowman and I thought she was really great!

  5. Oh my, this is adorable! What a fun idea! I haven't read Taken yet, but I love this cover reproduction. I should find a little one, and jump in on the fun!

  6. Seems like a good guess! I haven't read it but based on the description I would say that is likely to happen. Good drawing and use of orange :-D

  7. I do plan to read this book and I would have guess the exact same thing!
