A Kid’s Perspective: Judging a Book By Its Cover (9)

November 9, 2012 Black City, Book Covers, Cover Art, Designs by Shawn, Elizabeth Richards, Judging a Book by its Cover, Phoenix 6

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 5 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 week is the Black City edition! I was luck enough to read Black City and join the Blog Tour this week (my review is HERE) so what better time to see what Shawn thinks of the covers!

“Somebody gets a flower and they crumble the flower into pieces so they can glue the pieces onto paper to make something.”

Cover Art:

“This book is about a feather that is half side fire and half side not fire. The feather went up and hit the sun and is now landing on a bunch of buildings.”

Cover Art:

These are some of my favorites from him! I hope you enjoyed Shawn’s thoughts and artwork this week. Let me (and Shawn) know what you think! 🙂

    Yay I feel like I say this every time I see these posts but I seriously love these posts! Totally honest your son is a great artist and if I ever tried to draw either of those covers they would look so awful. He did such a great job with both of these covers! Love what he thought Black City was about because without knowing the synopsis I would have guessed flowers were involved.
