A 2-Year-Old Judges Books By Their Covers

Literary blogger Robert Bruce asked his son to review novels just by looking at their covers, with delightful results.

1. The Corrections

“It’s about eating lunch. They eat salad and cake. All they do is eat.”

2. The Great Gatsby

“This book is about singing. It’s about singing ‘Barbara Ann.’ Those are the lights, and there are lions in those lights.”

3. Atonement

“It’s about babies, and they are swinging into the water. They don’t got any shirts on. They are going to go right in the hole and that is their house and they are going to play with toys. And there is a lion in the house.”

4. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

“It’s about a castle. There is a big skunk at the castle. He is not feeling better, because the lion is trying to catch him.”

5. To Kill A Mockingbird

“It’s about a yucky pond, and she has a button on her shirt. She lost her button in the pond.”

6. Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret

“This book is about feet. They are lion feet and they stomp things.”
