Cover Update: Dilly Dally Sally

Last Saturday I reviewed a really fun and educational Children’s book, Dilly Dally Sally. The book itself is a cute rhyming story about a lost duckling that introduces kids to the wildlife of East London. I rated it 4.5 stars. However, the cover needed work. The author decided to update it, and it looks great!

Below is the old cover, which I gave 3 stars. Above is the new cover, which I think is cute and captivating, and still depicts the wildlife of London in an even better way. It’s a great improvement in my opinion. What do you think?

The review I did last week of Dilly Dally Sally is here
