The original cover art of a favorite children's book can be as beloved as the book itself, but there is wonderful artwork inspired by children's books. Sometimes it is very true to the original and other times it is a very different visual take on it. Here are ten examples, all affordable prints that you can buy.


1. Because I'm a Wild Animal by Nan Lawson, inspired by The Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl

2. Pippi by Helen Dardik, inspired by the Pippi Longstocking books by Astrid Lindgren
