Come up with at least one idea that you think each of the following people would suggest.

* Your best friend
* Your worst enemy (or someone who doesn’t really care for you or someone who doesn’t really know you)
* Your pet (or your favorite toy or possession)
Now, pick your favorite and make a book cover. Be sure to include the title as well as the author. For example, “by my dog,” or “according to me.”
