Cover Judging: Beauty and the Beast

Move aside Little Women, Regency Buck, and The 5th Horseman, it's time to get picky again! Which book cover do you prefer? I own the one at right - I bought it through the Scholastic book order in 7th grade. I think I like the middle one the best though.

If you're not familiar with Robin McKinley, she writes beautiful retellings of famous fairy tales (I reviewed Spindle's End, her version of Sleeping Beauty, last fall).

I love the Disney version of Beauty and the Beast (hello - she's a bookworm! and the Beast has the world's best library!) but McKinley's Beauty is even more lovely.

Which cover is your favorite? Anyone else fantasize about a library with shelves so high you need ladders?
