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 book cover featuring children. I’ve gone with Five Children and It by E. Nesbit.

Cover A:

children1

Cover B:

children2

Cover C:

children4

Cover D:

children5

Cover E:

children6

Cover F:

children7

Cover G:

children8

And the winner is… IT’S A DRAW!

Covers A and B tied for the win for me this week. Cover B has the Quentin Blake feel that I love in children’s books, I’ve always loved his art style. As for cover A, it is simple but definitely puts me in mind of the titular “It”, otherwise known as the Psammead.

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’s theme is a cover that features pirates: “I’m disinclined to acquiesce to your request.”
