Friday Face Off: Sea Creatures

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

“Two little fishes and a momma fishy too.”

This weeks theme:  A cover featuring a fish/fishes or other sea creatures

This week’s topic was a little difficult – not because I couldn’t find a cover with a sea creature, but because I have already used most of the titles I could think of:

My Choice: The Black Pearl

Covers:

HMH  1967 | Houghton Mifflin 1967 | Carousel  1971 | Turtleback 1977

Laurel Lea 1977 | Dell 1978 | Gramedia 1979 | Perfection Learning 1996

Matichon 2005 | Lectorum 2009 | HMH 2010 | Xiao Lu Wen Hua 2010

I don’t remember much about this book, other than I read it in school and I read the Turtleback 1977 edition.

Least Favorites:


I really like the outline of the stingray in the first one but it is covered by the pearl and the top island is too romance novel ish.

Favorites:


The third cover here I really like how the image is inside the black pearl, but I am not a huge fan of the image they chose.  I really like the other two and am having trouble picking my favorite!

Winner:
Pearl01
I love the color of this one and how it shows just how big the manta ray is!

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