Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I pay tribute to some of the best and brightest the publishing world has to offer in the way of book cover design. This feature is inspired by Katie’s feature Cover Love on her blog One Page At A Time. The idea is being used with her gracious permission.
Well, after a nearly three-month-long hiatus, Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover is back and better than ever, thanks in large part to a new, beautiful illustration by the phenomenally talented Vicki Tsai! (I am, unfortunately, approximately 75% less adorable in real life.) There have been so many wonderful cover reveals in this feature’s absence and I can’t wait to share even a few of my favourites with you in the weeks to come. This week I’ll begin by exploring one of my most beloved areas of all literature, the middle grade novel! Some of my favourite covers this week include Lucky Strikes by Louis Bayard, The Girl In The Well Is Me by Karen Rivers, Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo, Hour Of The Bees by Janette Rallison, The Distance To Home by Jenn Bishop, The Voyage To Magical North by Claire Fayers, Once Was A Time by Leila Sales, This Is Not A Werewolf Story by Sandra Evans, The Wild Robot by Peter Brown and Some Kind Of Happiness by Claire Legrand.
Now it’s your turn! What are some of your favourite middle grade covers? Did I list one of your favourites here or is there one I forgot that just has to be included? Let me know in the comments!
