Awesome book cover Friday: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Quick note: We now have a search box (top left). Somehow this got lost in the shuffle from the old theme to the new.

This week’s pick is the new cover for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Check out the one for Sorcerer’s Stone here.

Graphic novelist Kazu Kibuishi (Amulet) handled the redesign. Such an iconic moment! Would you have chose a different scene for the cover?

Bear with me over the next couple of weeks. I may be on radio silence. I’m reviewing a big game!

Thanks, and feel free to tweet or email! My line is always open.

Awesome book cover Friday: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Scholastic is dolling up all seven of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books with new, 15th-anniversary covers.

The first is coming for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in September. The redesigns were done by Kazu Kibuishi, a graphic novelist known for his Amulet series.

The publisher has revealed the cover for Sorcerer’s Stone. What do you think? I love the sleeker, more color-rich, more emotionally encapsulating take over the original.
