Friday Face-Off is an idea originally thought up by Books By Proxy which I stole from the fantastic The Tattooed Book Geek. The idea originally was to compare UK and US covers based on an assigned theme each week and choose the winning cover. I will be twisting it slightly: not specifically US and UK covers, just different editions.
This week’s theme is a cover featuring a mouse: “Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, ‘it might have been’…”.
I’ve taken a stroll down Memory Lane this week. I always remember having a box set of the Beatrix Potter books, so I picked The Tailor of Gloucester for my Friday Face-Off.
And the winner is… COVER A!
This cover easily wins it for me. It reminds me of the set of books I had as a child.
What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!
Next week I will be looking for a cover featuring a moon: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars”.
