Normally for Friday Face Off I show you two covers that sorta look alike and you tell me who did it better. Today, we're going to do it a little different. These covers are similar, yes, but that is because they are two stories based on the same fairy tale. The tale is East of the Sun and West of the Moon, a Beauty and the Beast-like story of a girl who must go north and face the Polar Bear King.
So today, you will be deciding which cover did it better. Which draws you in more? Which makes you want to read that story? Which best pulls off the B&B meets the Arctic circle? Well...
who did it better?

Last week on Friday Face Off: Ghostgirl and The Virago Book of Ghost Stories locked themselves in their coffins and refused to come out until a favorite was chosen; I hate to tell ya, Virago, but GHOSTGIRL won unanimously!
Have you seen any cover-twins or read-a-likes? Comment with the titles!
