I was an English major in college, which meant that I read lots of ugly-looking novels that still contained amazing and enlightening material. Which is why I’m a firm believer in the old adage “don’t judge a book by its cover.” I will gladly add an exception, however, for this adorable kid who evaluated her mother’s books based on their art. Here’s her guess for the plot of To Kill a Mockingbird:
It’s about a guy that tried to kill a mockingbird but he couldn’t because the bird was magical. And the bird lives in different trees because he’s trying to hide from him but the man keeps hitting leaves that look like the mockingbird, but he never shoots the mockingbird. And guy is really bad but the bird is really good. “
If that didn’t make you smile, I just don’t know what can. Click here for even more endearing literary guesses!
It looks like a book for kids. I think it’s about a donkey and a pig that do not like each other and they both live on a farm for animals. The same farm. It looks like it would be a funny book with a good really nice ending. “
Ah yes, Animal Farm. The greatest children’s book of our time. And boy is that ending happy! I can’t wait to have a kid someday just so I can use her for silly activities like this.
