Book Covers Redrawn in Five Minutes

May 22nd, 2012 by

If you haven’t noticed, Kidsmomo is a two-person team: just me and Karen. As I mention in Karen’s biography, she’s the words person for Kidsmomo, which leaves me… the pictures.

So I decided to test my skills and re-draw some fabulous book covers… in less then 5 minutes each.

Can you guess what book covers these are?

Confession: I did use a computer program to draw… but I think we can all agree these are still nowhere near as beautiful as the originals! Like, 10,000 light years away from the originals.

So… were you able to guess? Leave a comment and let me know!

Nancy likes to redraw more than draw, so this post was super fun to do. Maybe it’ll be added to the Kidsmomo calendar regularly…

    Love it! It’s like my “Book-tionary” game that I play with my elementary school students. Love that hide/show answer feature!
