A creepy Polish cover:





Ehem... I prefer to call it clever and original. :p

Haha! Interesting concept, but I don't think it really fits the theme. :D

I've seen the first one on several French editions.  It's very creepy.

The second one looks like graffiti.

Lots of buns on the third one, awesome :fiver

It looks cool tho I think^^

The second one looks like graffiti.
Yea I think that's what they were going for.
I find this one more disturbing tbh

Lots of buns on the third one, awesome :fiver
I like this Dutch cover but they had to split the title in such an awkward way^^

I THINK that's the cover I've got too but I can't check since I can't seem to find my copy of it right now.  Part of my book shelve is a bit of a mess :pipkin2 Too many books, too little space.

Those last four look great in their different styles. :D Would all make great posters!

This here's my favourite of the ones that I own.

"There's mist o' th' tops te hide ye.
There's bracken thick o' th' fell.
Streams where th' hoonds won't track ye.
Ye've lugs, me tod, an' smell.
There's shiny neets ye'll lowp and lark
And randy run te th' vixen's bark.
Ca' canny, else yer fer th' Dark —
Yon fettles aall yer jumpin'!"

My mum got this version for me a couple of years back. It's gorgeous  :pipkin2
