You can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can certainly use it to make some super, silly Instagram posts. If you haven’t yet discovered the bookface trend on Instagram, you’re going to want to stop everything and search the hashtag now. You’ll never look at a book the same way again.

Creating a bookface post involves holding a book cover featuring a head or face in front of your own to make it appear that your body is the book character’s body. While the trend extends to adult titles as well, Instagram user BookFaceKids has the best collection of kids books. No amount of words can really do justice to how hilarious and magnificent #bookface is, so we’ve rounded up a few of the best examples.
