Judging a book by its cover

Inspired by the recent-ish blog post about a six-year-old trying to guess what her father’s books were about based on the covers, I conducted my own experiment today with the elder of the two Minor Offences (aged 4). Obviously I gave it a crime-fiction twist. I thought I’d share my findings.

‘Fox got a thing stuck in it. Must hurt.’

Any suggestions for what she should look at next? I’m happy to take requests…
