    Presentation :

    this is a Black and white drawing of the cover The fifth child that we made

    Description :

    the first things which attracts our attention is the hooked hand in a deserted place that is seems to be a wood .

    All the drawing is in black and white color that's why it's give to the cover a threatening atmosphere. Furthermore it seems to be an isolated place because there is anything else around it

    At the top there is the title of the book in big and bright red color letters

    At the bottom there is the name of Doris Lessing in dark red color

    Analysis :

    the hooked hand which 's situated at the middle of the cover is very important . In fact it's represent the five children of Harriet and David, and moreover the last Child who's the fifth BEN. As well the hooked hand which is in a deserted place shows us the monstrosity of what awaits us

    Absolutly , hand represent five children but it's not shows that they are all monsters , but it's right that only the hooked represent ben because it's the problen of the family , it's a sort of russian dolls , you see ?

    and sonia our covert represent more the feelings of ben , with isolate place , strangness of the hooked and the kind of house in the background represent the mansion because it's a thing which are very important in the book. We want to throw the light on general feeling of the book and feeling of Ben .
