In Cover Combat a Swedish cover is being compared to the US/UK cover of the same book. Today I'm comparing the covers of The Key To The Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson. US covers:
Swedish Title: "Sisters of Gold"My Thoughts: The original (yellow) US cover is simple, which makes the multicolored title really stand out - a nice touch. The cover has later been redesigned to match the covers of Johnson's other books, all with girls on the cover. The Swedish covers are colorful, and I like how all things who are important to the plot - three sisters, a car and baseball - are featured on the cover. Still, I prefer the US covers. Which cover is your favorite?
