Judging A Book By Its Cover: Puffin Chalk Classics

This is my weekly post where I highlight and appreciate cover designs and the general physical appearance of books. We all judge book covers to some extent. I can’t say that I’ve ever decided against a book with terrible cover art if I liked the sound of the plot, but I have purchased special editions of books, or multiple editions of books based on their cover art. If book covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!

I stumbled on these pretty little things at HomeGoods for about $5.00 each and I couldn’t resist! Of course I was going to buy Alice, but I decided I might as well grab Peter Pan and the Wizard of Oz too because they made such a nice trio. There are other books in this series, but these were the only ones the store had. They’re tiny, not much longer than my hand, and totally adorable. They have deckle edges and Alice and Oz have a few little illustrations too. Published by Puffin in 2013 and 2014. Alice ISBN: 9780147510983, Oz ISBN: 9780142427507, Peter ISBN: 978.0147508652.
