Had a mango smoothie for lunch. 'Twas delicious, but no where near the peach mango one from the North End. I may head up there Friday after work, this is getting ridiculous.

Want to see something else ridiculous? This cover.

Image found here.

I love the book, but you have to admit that the cover is terrifying. There have been other designs, although none seem particularly great to me. What should we do about it, you ask? Oh, don't worry. I'm redesigning it for my print publishing course. Maybe if it's phenomenal I'll send it to Farrar, Straus, & Giroux and they will say, "Brilliant! We'll take it!" and I will be rich.

That's a bit ridiculous, too.


  1. This was my favorite book as a kid and I'm sure that this was the cover. I didn't think a thing about it, but now I will! Ha!

  2. That was the cover on the book I read! It is so seriously creepy. I found myself questioning how good the book actually was as I was reading it because the cover was so dreadful. It was like, how can a book with this cover be so good?!

  3. Who ever thought that this cover art was a good idea?? Oh heavens.
