Friday Face-Off – 15th June 2018

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 weeks’ theme is a cover featuring a rider or riders: ‘Live in the saddle. Die on the hog.’

This weeks’ book is The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


And the winner is… COVER A!

This cover had a childlike charm about it. It’s brightly coloured and there is a sense of energy and fun in it.

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 cover featuring a murder scene: ‘Murder most foul, as in the best it is.’

  1. I read this book as a young child, and I had cover C. Although it doesn’t have the movement and action of some of the others, the details are awesome, like the tail tucked around the front leg of the mouse.
