I love book covers. I really really do! I've been known to drag my sister across Barnes and Noble just to show her a cover. Or to find students just to show them a cover. I truly do crush on covers!
Today though I have to talk about a cover I did crush on, and now I'm sad because they've just ruined it.
That cover is:
I loved this cover! It was so different from anything else there, and it just screamed creepy! I know too, that it got a ton of my students to pick it up and take a look at it. Both boys and girls.
Now they are changing it for the paperback to this:
Saddness. To me it just doesn't fit the book. Where is the creepiness? Where is the appeal to both boys and girls? Sigh. Thankfully I have the hardcover for my classroom.
I have to share this version of the cover as well though:
I believe it's the German cover. LOVE it! Creepy!!!!!!
Sorry to go negative on a Cover Crush Monday, but it was one time I just had to share my sadness :(
