A Kid’s Perspective: Judging a Book By Its Cover (25)

March 8, 2013 Becca Fitzpatrick, Book Covers, Cover Art, Designs by Shawn, Hush Hush, Judging a Book by its Cover 21

Inspired by an article on Babble called, Judging a Book by Its Cover: A 6-year-old Guesses What Classic Novels Are All About, I have asked my 6 year old what his thoughts are on a few Young Adult covers lying around the house. To take it a step further, I also had him make some cover art!

“This is about somebody who is in the air and flying with black wings. He’s trying to do a flip because maybe he never did one before.”

Cover Art:

He does look like he is trying to do a back flip. lol I was surprised Shawn picked this one this week but he did a great job. I hope you enjoyed Shawn’s thoughts and artwork this week! Since a couple other blogs have expressed interest in doing something similar, I have decided to add a linky tool, so that you can also check out what they are doing as well! I hope you will give them a look see!

Don’t forget to let us know what you think! 🙂

    “Because maybe he never did one before.” Priceless. 🙂 He DOES look like that’s what he’s trying to do, though. I still need to read the last book in this series. 🙁

    Oh my gosh, this is adorable! I love that he’s doing the back flip because he’s never done one before. I guess that means I have some back flips to do too. 🙂 Such a cute feature, and I love the drawing too!

    One of my favorite books! It does look like he’s doing a backflip doesn’t it? As always, I loved hearing Shawn’s thoughts and his drawing is awesome!

    This is such a cute feature! I should get my 4 year old to do this! BTW he loves your blog design because he loves tigers. He saw I was on your blog one day and said, “Look mom, a tiger!” 🙂

    Oh. My. Gosh. This is SO stinkin’ cute!!!!! “He’s trying to do a flip because maybe he never did one before” killed me! Shawn is so precious and his recreation is marvelous. It’s fridge-worthy for sure 🙂
