Children's Classics Re-imagined Book Covers

One blogger has taken some well known children's classics and created what their covers might look like if these books were not meant for children, but for a serious adult audience. 1. The Fantastic Mr. Fox - Roald Dahl 2. What do People do All Day? - Richard Scarry 3. Lost and Found - Oliver Jeffries 4. The Borrowers - Mary Norton 5. The Wind in the Willows - Kenneth Grahame 6. The Snowy Day - Ezra Jack Keats 7. Peter Rabbit - Beatrice Potter 8. Charlotte's Web - E.B. White 9. Madeline - Ludwig Bemelmans 10. Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown I'd be interested to read actual remakes such as these--deepening the morals and themes of these children's books to suit an adult novel would be an interested experiment for any writer, I think.

I would love to read an adult version of 'Madeline' and 'What Do People Do All Day?'
@timeturnerjones But the story might not be simple at all as serious fiction! Keats sought to represent minorities in a time when minorities had little place in popular literature--how would this have transitioned into adult fiction? Surely, the stakes would be high, and this cover would juxtapose that in it's simplicity.
@strawberrychip I feel like 'What do People do All Day' might take a sort of depressing tone if we give it a more aged perspective, no?
@strawberrychip I agree; surely an update and retelling of Madeline would be especially intriguing. Especially if she were rewritten as an adult, for adults.
@greggr I hadn't even considered that; I just remember the book from my youth. Keats hoped to bring attention to minorities? in what way? if thats the case, the whiteness of this updated cover, too, might represent a theme of the novel.

A Blissful Place for Manga Lovers!
For the longest time I only have one reason for visiting Japan. Nope, it's not for food. Nope, it's not for fashion. Yes. It's for hot spring! I may look an average 20 something gal but I'm a grandma at heart. I've been told that many times because of my peculiar lifestyle. I love jacuzzi and hot spring is one of the thing I've always wanted to try after watching dramas that features this fabulous chamber. Even though I really wanted to visit Japan I didn't think hot spring would justify the trip because Taiwan also have hot spring. The ticket and accommodation in Taiwan is more budget-friendly than Japan. It was not until today I found another reason to go visit Japan. Books & Bed This concept is really intriguing. Though, I don't openly express it, I'm a manga girl at heart. Throw me in a room with a bunch of manga and I will be more than happy to read them. This is place is truly a gem for book lovers and someone who appreciates minimal architect. At Book and Bed Hostel you get a beautiful view of the city at night and get unlimited access to book in their library until your eyes become drowsy. The industrial interior design is filled with cement walls, wooden bookshelves and wooden single beds. Obviously, it's not a place for you to get a comfy pillow and cozy bed. If you are solo or duo traveler, this is the type of place that will bring you a blissful evening. What more do you want from a short vacation getaway than a place to sleep and get inspired? Anyone else feel the same way?
3 Korean Authors To Add To Your Reading List
I recently made a video about Haruki Murakami, and a few of oyu asked about some Korean authors you might like. Here are 3 and a half suggestions First is Kyungsook Shin, who I haven't read yet. She wronte "Please Look After Mom" which was a huge success internationally. She has had some scandals surrounding her though, because she plagarized a bit of her work from other authors... Now onto the authors I HAVE read! 1. Han Kang Most recently known for The Vegetarian, she writes in a creepy but realistic style. Everything that happens is believeable which makes it so much scarier. I'm about to read her historical fiction piece, Human Acts! 2. Chang Rae Lee I read On Such A Full Sea sometime last year and really enjoyed it. It takes place in a distopian society and is a really interesting look into how we interact with people around us! 3. Young Ha Kim I adore this author and if you're going to read anything on this list make sure you read Black Flower. It is about the true history of hundreds to thousands of Koreans being brought over to Mexico to essentially be slaves on plantations. Its a part of history I never knew about, and Young Ha Kim explains it in a really fascinating way. Have you read any of these authors?! Here are links to the books if you're interested in picking any of them up^^ Young Ha Kim BLACK FLOWER: http://amzn.to/2mltxHU I Have The Right To Destroy Myself: http://amzn.to/2m1fyGG Han Kang The Vegetarian: http://amzn.to/2lLKvOn Chang Rae Lee On Such A Full Sea: http://amzn.to/2m1jEyQ Kyung Sook Shin Please Look After Mom: http://amzn.to/2m1uXqs
