Something Rotten.

Please does anyone know, is there a paperback "Something Rotten" book with the Minotaur on a surfboard on the front cover? - I really like all the old covers, but all the new covers are not so cool, I think. Also, I really wanted all my Thursday Next books to have samey covers.

From Little Blue Fox. :)

The jackets page doesn't depict the Minataur paperback. Although it might just need some updating, I don't think that's likely though since the Fourth Bear is listed.
Shame to split the line, really. I prefer the simpler UK covers also, although I don't own any as yet (I'm in the US). I also really like the elegant US pictoral covers with the bookish themes. The really colorful drawn UK covers don't feel right to me (Thursday's car is kind of stripey for one thing!), but I've purchased several anyways.

I don't like the stripy car in the cover illustrations: the Escher lizards are way too cool to be replaced by boring old stripes!!! (Yeah, OK, I understand the copyright issues, but still...) Escher Rocks!!

Totally agree, just done a post to this effect. Did find a hardback copy of something rotten with tehold style cover but it was specail edition copy. Really dislike the new covers, maybe there is a rouge artisan within the book world gone awol graffit style!

Hah. He forgot the actual spam first time.

Boring name he has picked.
