On Fuse 8 this week, Elizabeth Bird compares book covers from the US and UK! Bird even gets permission to show the brand new American book cover art for Cuckoo Song. The picture we’ve shared here is the UK version. The American version is oh, so much creepier! Do you think it’s as creepy as we do?
To see all five book cover examples, including works from J.K. Rowling and R.J. Palacio, check out the School Library Journal! Tell us if you like the British or American versions better!
(P.S. If you’re a librarian, be sure to check out the comments at the bottom of the SLJ blog post!)
