Using the aphorism "never judge a book by its cover" I refute the idea that this is important enough to warrant discussion. I don't see the point.

I know, this is not gonna stop me from reading the book, I just think the illustrator was seriously slacking this time.

Well, if you hate it, you can always buy a collector's edition or something.

Well I already have all the rest of the books in that cover, and I'm too much of a perfectionist to get a different one. :(

I'm betting thats the US cover anyway. The European editions have had a slightly more adult style so far.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I can't believe I'm the one who has to settle this

The UK edition which you seem to be familiar with.

The US edition

The UK adult edition

I've already seen all the covers, I just posted the UK version because that's the one I'm familiar with. I expected someone to be able to use google to find the others...

Actually, looking at it now, it doesn't seem so bad. I like all the bright colours and shiny things.

Certainly, I prefer it to the hideous, overcompensating font used on the American cover. Leik, omg, teh P's a lightning bolt!! They've done their best to make the title as hard to read as possible.

I feel like a professional book critic now.
