Captioning Book Covers

June 3rd, 2012 by

Just a few days ago, the cover for the third Heroes of Olympus book (The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan) was released… and it is absolutely beautiful! Instead of (over)analyzing the book cover illustration by John Rocco like I usually do, I thought I’d take another approach…

Then I got inspired to give some other covers the same treatment!

What other giggle-worthy book cover captions can you think of?

— Nancy

Nancy is really, really, REALLY excited for Mark of Athena to be released in October. Especially if it does involve horse-on-horse sneezing.

Book Trailer: Bone

March 9th, 2010 by

This book trailer for the Bone series was originally the Mystery Book Theater video for our Graphic Novels theme. For more on the Bone series, check out our “Pretty as a Picture” podcast.

Believe it or not, Jeff Smith dreamed up his three main characters for the Bone series when he was in kindergarten! It took quite a few more years before the rest of the world could meet them, but now anyone can see their adventures in the published graphic novels — and sometime in the future, movie-goers will hang out with them in theaters too. In the meantime, check out our video introduction to this trio of unlikely heroes.
