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:

Add to Goodreads

"A girl found a cookie that looked like a puzzle piece heart.  A little boy saw the girl, and he asked her if she found the cookie he left for her."

Cover Art

Bittersweet as envisioned by Katiebug

Okay, TBH, Katie had a whole conversation going between the boy and the girl, but she was talking so quickly and I can only write so fast, so yeah.  =)  I didn't bother to tell her the book's actually about cupcakes.  She was already running around the house screaming, "CAKE!" earlier because I told her we were going to bake Daddy's favorite cake for Father's Day this weekend.  :D

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. Awww how sweet! Katie made up a little love story to go with the cookie! The boy left the cookie for the girl. That is too cute! I have this book and really want to read it.

  2. Adorable! And this makes me wonder, again, why the publisher put a cookie on the cover of a book about cupcakes?

  3. Oh my god this is absolutely adorable! Love this!!

  4. Aw, and she's right … why is there a cookie on the cover when the book is about cupcakes? But her explanation perfectly sums up the romance and the magic in the story!

  5. Awww, the cookie he left for her? That is so sweet! Sorry I didn't put up a post this week. I 've been sick and out of commission for a few days.

    I hope she enjoys the cake you make for her daddy!

  6. Aw, love the picture she drew as well as her rapid process of it all. And the whole CAKE for Father's Day is precious :) Have a great day!

  7. I keep hearing how GREAT this book is! It's on my TBR for sure, especially because it features yummy treats. I need a cookie now.

  8. what a sweet description. I have not read the book so I am not so sure how close it is to the real story. Heard the book is good though!
