Cover Love- Curse of the Boggin- The Library

A creepy cover for Cover Love today! Curse of the Boggin, The Library by D. J. MacHale, which I found at my local library.

Wow, perfect cover for Halloween time. This creepy cover has it all. Front and center, the old chest, once bound by ropes, but now dead hands are prying the lid open and a foul, green stench is being emitted. In the background, we have shelves of books and dead center, a spotlight on a boy and girl running for their lives. I love the color scheme and the green smoke, fabulous. The sense of dread and urgency that the cover evokes is real. Plus, it is in a library, a supposed safe place. Great children's book cover.
