Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly event hosted by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much. Each participant picks a book to match a theme, then finds the original cover, the covers for your country, and identifies favorite/least favorite covers. For more information, check out the Goodreads page.
This week’s theme is based on the fact that World Smile Day is tomorrow. My task was to pick a book that made me smile recently…but I went back in time a little ways to find this gem. I picked Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World because I just fell in love with Dewey and his life at the library. It was a great book and I recommend it if you are a cat lover and love to read. Such a great, heartwarming little story.
Other U. S. Covers
This is the US children’s version of the book. It was the only other US edition I could find.
I really love the French cover the best, next to the original edition. I like the colors and cat outline a lot. I like the original edition because Dewey is so cute. I also like the Chinese cover because the book in front of Dewey is open and I like that image.
Least Favorite Covers
I wanted to like the German cover because I like the green, but there’s just something about the pawprints I find too cutesy. I don’t even know what to say about the Spanish cover except WHAT?? That cat is not cute. There are no books. Dislike! The Swedish cover I don’t like because it’s just kind of blah.
