I said recently that there's just something about the beginning of Fall that has me craving middle grade adventure stories. I suppose it's the whole 'back to school' thing, but like clockwork every year, I get a hankering for them. Because of this, I just posted an excerpt vlog of ND Wilson's The Dragon's Tooth, and noticed when I was gathering the links and info that it had a different cover, so I figured, why not just make a couple days of it, add it to Face Off, and have a little TDT weekend? Below are the original hardcover and updated paperback versions for The Dragon's Tooth. I know which one I prefer, but take a look and let me know in the comments which you'd reach for, or stock in your libraries and classrooms? Which would you reach for, and which would your kids or students reach for?
Which one did it better?
Last Week on FFO: 2 versions of Alan Bradley's The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie went head to head, and though I love them both (and many of you did, too), we were all pretty taken with the gorgeous redesign of the cover.
