“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:
- Island of the Blue Dolphins (Under the Sea)
- Nim’s Island (Seeds/Spores)
- Mr. Popper’s Penguins (Icicles or Snow)
- The Sea of Monsters (Greek)
My Choice: The Black Pearl
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.
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.
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!
I love the color of this one and how it shows just how big the manta ray is!
