The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This week’s theme is a cover featuring a staircase: ‘There are too many steps in this castle, and it seems to me they add a few every night, just to vex me.’

This week I picked The Hidden Staircase by Carolyn Keene.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:

Cover E:



And the winner is… COVER C !

I was drawn to the quirky style of cover C. All of the other covers had an old-school feel close to the old Enid Blyton books. Not that there is an issue with those, but all of the other covers were too similar for my liking.

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 weeks’ theme is a book featuring something from Greek Mythology: ‘The only true wisdom is to know that you know nothing.’
