Judging A Book By It’s Cover: A Kid’s Perspective on Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Posted July 26, 2013 by Christy / 3 Comments

I saw this feature over at Forever 17 Books and I loved the idea, so I asked Sara if I could get my 6 year old son in on the fun since he thinks it will make him famous.     “I think it’s about Knights and Princesses, because only Knights and Princesses have castles.  Maybe Dragons and Zombies too”                                                                  Cover Art       This is such a fun feature.  I loved hearing what Landon thought about this book and he loved drawing the cover. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next time.
