Alternative Book Covers - Cat's Cradle

For me, DS106 seems to be revolving around Kurt Vonnegut. First, there was that task in Week 2. Then, my bunkhouse was named Slaughterhouse 4. So, I just had to do Design Assignment 366, which was to create an alternative book cover suggesting that the book is about something entirely different. I know I am being mean, but I just couldn't help it.

Here it is:

By the way, since this is primarily a TEFL blog, I believe there is a great lesson plan here, especially if the students are all reading the same book. Then they could compare the cover story to the original, or even develop the story from the cover further. Or they could create their own book covers. It would be fun to create the cover and leave out the title. Then they could try to guess what book the cover creator had in mind.

Love the idea of putting a kitten in the Cat's Cradle bookcover, very creative and Vonnegut would even love it :)

Yes, I believe Vonnegut would like it. He never took himself too seriously. Or anyone else, for that matter:)
