Friday Face-Off: Something Furry

Friday Face-Off is a weekly meme originally created by Books by Proxy, and is currently hosted by Lynn’s Books.

The idea is to compare different book covers, based on a weekly changing theme.

The theme for this week’s Friday Face-Off is something furry, and the book I chose is Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH written by Robert C. O’Brien. Fun fact about this particular book, both the book and the movie version used to terrify me as a child.

I have a fondness for all three of these book covers, but my favourite would have to be the middle one. I feel like it just portrays such a strong sense of adventure that the other two book covers do not. I like the brightness of the yellow on the first cover, and the softness of the illustration on the third, but the middle cover just speaks to my heart.

What do you think? Which of these book covers do you prefer?
