Judging a Book by Its Cover

A six-year-old girl picks up her mother's books and describes the contents by what she sees on the cover. Here's how she interpreted the cover of The Great Gatsby (as shown here).
"I think it's a book about a haunted theme park and it stars a magical magic guy and he's good and evil and he's trying to get rid of the ghosts. And I think at the end, since it's haunted by a ghost, he tried to make the park go on fire and it did. "

Wuthering Heights: "And it looks like it’s a sad tree
too since it has no friends." Damn that kid is good. Okay, it's not about a tree, but Heathcliff doesn't have friends... And it _is_ a sad book (stupid, wrong ending).
