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:

Easter “The rabbit of Easter. He bring the chocolate”

Strangely enough I found myself with a number of possibilities for this one!  First thoughts were, of course, the white rabbit of Alice in Wonderland.  I also managed to find a book that had chocolate bunnies on the front which was a surprise and there were plenty of children’s books about the Easter bunny.  But I went with my second, and probably still obvious for me, choice:

Watership Down by Richard Adams

My favourite this week is the cover that really feels like the real ‘Watership Down’, it was also the book that I owned, I have no idea where it is now but I love this cover:

“All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.”
