    LOVE this book so much that I’m afraid that I have to go with the original cover. I just can’t picture it any other way!!

  2. I really like your take on this one! It expresses the multiple viewpoints so well. Plus I was never a fan of the “cups of tea” cover. I wish I could tell those two kids at the bottom to stop looking so surly, though! ;-)
