This weeks theme:  A seasonal cover.

My Choice: How The Grinch Stole Christmas

Covers:

Random House 1957 | HarperCollins 1997 | HarperCollins 2000 | Pocket Jeunesse 2002

Presse Pocket 2002 | Gottmer 2012 | HarperCollins 2013 | Mondadori 2013

HarperCollins 2016 | Le nouvel Attila 2016 | Random House Books 2017 | Libri 2018

Least Favorites:

Not a big fan of the movie tie in.  I love the colors and art of the middle one but the white bar ruins it.  The third the Grinch looks to sappy.

Favorites:

Winner:

I like this one slightly better than the original because the picture is the same and you have the spiky circle, but its not as harsh and I like the colors better.

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

  1. I think I like the one you picked and the original the best- having a hard time deciding, although the green is more to my liking than the red. 🙂 I like the HarperCollins 2016 one as well- heck that might even be my favorite haha!

    Fun covers!

  2. I like yours very much – a superb choice for this week’s theme, by the way… I think yours is the most appropriate choice I’ve seen! But my heart belongs to the original – I’ve shared so this one with both grandchildren:)

  3. Ugh yeah the Mondadori one has great art, but why’d they put that white bar?? Also the colors don’t feel Christmassy to me. I see there’s another w/ the same art, but somehow it doesn’t look as good lol. I like the 2nd cover best. Same art as the one you chose, but I like the background coloring w/ the white art!
