Cover Recreating

My seven year old daughter, Lucy,  has as much a thing about book covers as I have. She's quite often found in front of my book shelves purring over a pretty cover, as well as her own. 

So when Luisa Plaja's latest book popped through the letterbox a few days ago, she instantly fell in love. In fact she thought it was for her full stop and I had to wrestle it out of her hands. It was the little Hama bead people on the front she was so taken with, and today she decided to recreate them herself with Aqua beads (we don't have the other type..yet) 

Here's the result. I think she did a pretty good job.. don't you? 

Maybe this could be a theme *off to see what other covers we can recreate with play doh, pipe cleaners and sequins*  Suggestions below ... :D

Kiss date Love Hate by Luisa Plaja is out February 2nd. I'll be reading and reviewing it next week.


  1. I'm impressed, they look exactly like the cover :D Would be a fab idea feature too!

  2. These are amazing and I love them to bits! You're a star, Lucy! And thank you for posting them here, Vicki.
    I love this idea for a feature and I'll look forward to others!

  3. These are fantastic. Way to go Lucy x

  4. You did a great job! They look great! Well done, Lucy! (and Vicki!!) :)

  5. OMG that is so awesome - is it with aqua beads rather than the hama ones???

  6. I think this is one of my favourite posts that I've seen in absolutely ages! What a brilliant idea and I would love to see more cover re-creations! :)
