Rick Rocks!

HEY! Which do you prefer? The black and white levels were corrected in the image on the left. Below is the actual cover of   RICK WALTON's next* picturebook (illustrated by West Hargis; edited by Victoria Arms Wells) coming from Bloomsbury on October 16. Better pre-order!  

*Rick is throwing the good ol' one-two punch! Frankenstein only just pub'd (Feiwel & Friends) and  I NEED MY OWN COUNTRY  is smack on its heels. We do not see theses books cannibalizing each other's sales. In case you are wondering.

I can understand the artist wanting the cover to be as close to the original as possible. However, I personally prefer the lighter one, the colors look more inviting.

I actually like the corrected one- it looks grungier, and more down-home country to me. The lighter one seems more light and fairy-ish, which doesn't seem to be the theme of the book. I've loved country all my life too, so I think I have a fairly on-target 'country' opinion.
