‘And I, Jack, The Pumpkin King’
Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme created by Books by Proxy . This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers. The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined theme (list below) choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite. Future week’s themes are listed below. This week’s theme:
28th October – ‘And I, Jack, The Pumpkin King’! – a cover for Halloween

And the winner:
