US design by Megan WilsonPortraying what a daydreamer sees (the US cover, first image) strikes me as more powerful than an external view of the act of daydreaming (the UK cover, second image).
US and UK
Second cover is so boring and literal.
2nd one fits with the recent cover designs of his books in the UK. A little under imaginative.
It's worth noting, perhaps, that this is a book for ages 8+. That alone makes the US cover more appropriate.
The US cover is wonderful-- really perfect.
US covers do seem to generally be better. Why?
i like the second cover better. its more emotional, i can respond to that.
I like the first cover a lot, but it is very reminiscent of this Microsoft campaign: http://www.ee.ryerson.ca/~elf/powerbook/images/microsoft-ad.jpg
Can you please credit photographers on both?First is clever, second looks like young adult lit.
That first cover also reflects this earlier (but more nightmarish) UK cover: http://www.booksunlimited.ie/bookcover/9780099590613/The-Daydreamer.jpg
