Rolling Out The Favorites of 2011

Can you believe we are nearing the end of 2011? Reflecting back on the year in book covers was fun but challenging to pick just a few favorites.

For "cute" my favorite is Little Owl's Night. How can any one resist those big eyes?

I can't help but feel like I am floating up in the air whenever I see this cover. And the e.e. cummings style title is appealing too.

The next two YA are favorites because they are not typical.  
Great kaleidoscope effect.

  1. Love all these covers, Deirdre! I haven't picked my favorites of 2011 yet...

  2. Thanks thatcovergirl. Looking forward to your picks. I'm finding I'm adding new ones to my list as I walk by the shelves looking for Christmas gifts.
