PREVIOUS ARABELLA COVER

So many problems with this one (Sourcebooks Casablanca, 2016). So many. For a start, that girl is so airbrushed and poorly rendered, she looks like the poster girl for a Hallmark Channel Original Movie. And is that Ulysses? Really? That purebred cutie pie ready to compete for Best in Show at Crufts? This, meanwhile, forms part of the series “Fearless Heroines,” which offers us also Frederica and The Grand Sophy in equally pastel tones. NO! D-

And come back next time, a se’enight hence, when we begin to rate the covers of Bath Tangle, for which there are definitely some… interesting efforts. See you then!
