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 sees a pretty black butterfly on an orange flower with a real tiny red pattern on it."

Cover Art

Jellicoe Road as envisioned by Katiebug

Either Katie was listening to this while I was, or she is just that good. :)  The cover on the audio was the same that pops up on Goodreads if you search the book, but the hardcover I got at HPB has this cover, and I'll be honest, I prefer this one, anyway.  The flower is pretty and it's important, so yeah.

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. I would love to read this book. I have heard so many good things about it. I love the author too.
    Can't wait to read your thoughts... and of course another great piece of art by Katie!

  2. Smart girl! I love how specific kids can be. Katie did a great job!

  3. Awww, I love it! We both did flower covers this week. :)

  4. She looked at the cover pretty realistically this week. I haven't read this book so I have no clue what the importance is of the flower.
