A book by its cover

Ever judged a book by its cover? "Everytime" would be my answer. I admit it, I'm a sucker for a nice cover, beautiful packaging and other shiny and colourful things. And in this case I recognised the illustrator Rob Ryan and couldn't resist. If you've never seen his work it's worth having a look at his website & blog. In my defense I'm sure the book is really good too, and with a different cover I probably would have bought it all the same... mmm.

Next time I visit the library I'll look for Connolly.
I've run out of good books so I'm reading crappy ones at the moment.
If I buy a book it has to have a beautiful cover...so you are definitely not the only one

If you were into fairy-tales (Brothers Grimm style rather than Disney versions) when you were a child you'll definetely enjoy this book!
