Judging the Book By Its Cover: Dinosaurs, Robots, and Dinosaur Robots

23719378

My Idea: Meet the woman known simply as “Granny,” who is really anything but.

In an alternate universe where dinosaurs, robots, and dinosaur robots coexist, Granny is the cowboy version of Robin Hood. But stealing from the rich to give to the poor is the least of her accomplishments. From space age pirates to invisible tigers, Granny simply saves the world one impossible situation at a time.

Goodreads Summary: “Constance Kopp doesn’t quite fit the mold. She towers over most men, has no interest in marriage or domestic affairs, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding fifteen years ago. One day a belligerent and powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family — and she does it in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared.” Find it on Goodreads

Results: Amy Stewart’s novel looks fantastic (albeit in a different way than I imagined)!

Judging the Book By Its Cover is an ongoing series that imagines a potential story for a book based on the cover art alone.  You can read more here and here.

    • I’ve seen Doctor Who but actually wasn’t thinking of him (at least consciously) when I wrote this! I haven’t kept up with the most recent season…it’s not my favorite thing but I binge watched it one summer and loved it haha.
