Least Favorites:


These ones are super weird



Honorable Mention:


Usually I don’t like the movie tie in covers but they did an amazing job recreating the original cover!



I just love the cute little pig and duckling! They are so cute!

  1. What a fantastic choice of book for this week:)). I love the original alongside the movie tie-in. As you said – it was a lovely rendition of the original, showing real respect for the mood of the book. So I want BOTH of them!

  2. Oh my gosh, I had no idea there were so many covers of Charlotte’s Web! I only knew the first one you showed, which became one of your finalists. I do admit that I’ve always liked that cover because it immediately reminds me of how great the story is. But I do like your winner because of the pig’s smile!
