A book adventure

We have joined in with My Little Bookcase's latest book adventure. The challenge is to re-create your favourite book cover. We chose two books – The Very Bad Bunny by Marilyn Sadler, illustrated by Roger Bollen and Rosy's Visitors by Judy Hindley, illustrated by Helen Craig.

The kids got involved in searching out costumes and props. I had a good laugh when trying to direct them into position. We tried hard (and failed) to involve our grey cat for the cover of Rosy's Visitors.

I love the photos and finished images, they will be lovely keepsakes of their own book adventures. Anyone is welcome to participate in this book adventure by uploading a photo onto the contest facebook page (you don't need to be a blogger). You can find all the details here. Check out the other entries here (entries close on September 30).

If this is your first visit to at home with Ali – welcome. If you like it, you can follow along through our facebook page or subscribe via email or RSS. Cheers Ali

  1. Too cute!! I love this idea. Sophie is obsessed with books, so I think we might join in the fun too :D

    1. You should, I am sure you would do something fabulous :)

  2. Ali, your tableaux are absolutely fantastic. You are so clever I think I need to get some photo editing lessons from you.
    I love the smiles on your girls' faces on The Very Bad Bunny shot, but I think I love Rosy's Visitors the most.
    Do you know I haven't read either of these books though?

    Thank you so much for taking part.

    1. Thanks Jackie, they are great books, one was a hand me down and the other was found at a second hand market.... and they are both gems.


I would love it if you would leave me a comment.
