Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 92: Middle Grade (Part 25)

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.

Some of my favourite covers this week include Aru Shah and The End Of Time by Roshani Chokshi, Copyboy by Vince Vawter, Almost Invisible by Maureen Garvie, A Whale In Paris by Daniel Presley and Claire Polders, The Turning by Emily Whitman, The Storm Keeper’s Island by Catherine Doyle and Counting To Perfect by Suzanne LaFleur.

Please Note: I’ve done my best to credit the designers and artists responsible for the beautiful covers below, but was unable to find this information for a number of those listed. If you know of an uncredited designer responsible for any of these book covers, please let me know and I would be happy to include proper attribution in this post. Their work is lovely and deserves to be credited.
