Friday Face-Off

Friday Face Off: Wolf / Wolves

This is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, but currently run by Lynn’s Book Blog.

“He had killed man, the noblest game of all, and he had killed in the face of the law of club and fang.”

This weeks theme: A cover featuring a wolf or wolves

My Choice: Julie of the Wolves

Covers:

Harper & Row 2005 | Scholastic US 1985 | Harper & Row 1973 | Dtv 2000
Turtleback Books 2003 | Open Road Media YA 2011 | Recorded Books, Inc. 1993 | Sauerländer 1987
Mondadori 1996 | Alfaguara Infantil 2006 | Salani 2013 | Librairie générale française 1983
Puffin Books 1976 | Otava 1984 | Caminho 1991 | Uitgeverij Jenny De Jonge Amsterdam 1994
Sauerländer 1999 | Unknown | 漢聲 1990 | İş Bankası Kültür Yayınları 2003
Kosmos 1974 | Bokklubbens Barn 1996 | Empúries 1989 | Alfaguara 1995

When I saw the topic I immediately thought of Julie of the Wolves! I think I read this in Middle School and I remember loving it! I still own my copy from school, I have the Harper & Row 2005 edition!

Least Favorites:

Jenny De Jonge Amsterdam 1994 | İş Bankası Kültür Yayınları 2003 | Bokklubbens Barn 1996

On the Amsterdam cover, the wolf looks like a fox. On the Yayinlari cover, Julie looks like a porcupine, and the Bokklubbens cover is just bad!

Favorites:

Harper & Row 2005 | Harper & Row 1973 | Open Road Media YA 2011 | Librairie générale française 1983

I like a lot of these covers but I didn’t love any of them.  The Harper & Row 2005 is the one I own so I am partial to it.  I like the art work on Harper & Row 1973 but I am not a huge fan of the green.  I like the simplicity of the Open Road Media YA 2011 but it doesn’t really capture the story.  I love the picture on Librairie générale française 1983 but the title font is awful.

Winner:

Julie12

Despite the awful font, this is my favorite this week.  I love that she is hugging one of the wolves and the little wolf pup is in the front.  On most of the covers Julie and the Wolves are separate and not interacting, so I think that is why this cover sticks out for me!

Which is your favorite? Do you agree with my choice? Let me know in the comments!!

  1. I probably would agree with your choice if I’d read the book and ya the font isn’t the nicest. I never heard of Julie of the Wolves nor do I know what it’s about but I too like Harper & Row 2005 and I also like Sauerländer 1987 Have a great day!

  2. This was one of my childhood favorites! What a great selection for this week’s theme! I think my favorite is the Open Road Media one with the silhouette of the wolf’s head on the red background. I’m partial to silhouettes though. 🙂 I hope you have a great weekend!
