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:

Boats “The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea, in a beautiful pea green boat…”

The first book I thought of for this one was a book that I’ve recently been seeing reviews for: The Ship by Antonia Honeywell:

My favourite cover is the first – the spooky, misty waters – I’m not sure that this really is representative of the book but I like the eerie feel.
