Judging A Book By Its Cover: Little Hands Clapping

This is my weekly post where I highlight and appreciate cover designs and the general physical appearance of books. We all judge book covers to some extent. I can’t say that I’ve ever decided against a book with terrible cover art if I liked the sound of the plot, but I have purchased special editions of books or multiple editions of books based on their cover art. If book covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!

I found this strange gem in a used bookstore during my travels this summer (and by travels I mean brief trip to MD). I thiiiink it’s middle grade (at least, I found it in that section) and it seems like something I’ll enjoy, if I ever make time for it. This edition was published in 2011 by Canongate Books, ISBN: 9781847675293.
