HARRY POTTER Series Gets a Cover Facelift!



The iconic children's fantasy series that set the world on storm, Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, is getting a facelift!

"Harry and Hagrid are featured walking in Diagon Alley
as Harry enters a magical world of witchcraft and wizardry."
-From Good Morning America and ABC

ABC broke the news on Good Morning America this morning, and if you visit the website now,

Kibuishi told ABC, among other things, that “I wanted it to feel whimsical,” Kibuishi said, “Like an entrance into a fantasy world, but also like a perennial classic.”

Visit Kibuishi's website now for more of his exciting artwork!  

Kibuishi is also the author of a popular middle-grade comic book series entitled Amulet, and I've often taken notice of the series before because the covers are always so striking!

What are your thoughts?  
Are you excited to see the series get a facelift? 
Are you married to the original?

  2. I was skeptical about the news, but I've been pleasantly surprised. This cover is better than the original one; of course, I've never been a fan of the cover for the first book anyway. I always thought it was a little ugly. I'm curious to see what the other covers will look like.
