Not that these aren't stylish covers--check out THE SAVAGE FORTRESS for excitement, or THE SEVEN TALES OF TRINKET for sheer class. I love the notion that the push-broom is mightier than the sword in THE SPINDLERS. I have to say, though, my all-time favorite gizmo has to be THE PECULIAR--can't wait to see what that one's about.
As always, let us know in the comments if we missed one of this season's stunning covers--and link to it so we can see it. Stay tuned for the fall collection of young-adult covers, starting Labor Day!

(Some of them cute as buttons)
(Some of them a trifle grouchy)
Gears and Gizmos!
The kick-butt heroine is alive and well . . .
As girls seek their fortunes in crystal or spell.
Some flame hot or get cursed by Feys . . .
Or bring us tales from the olden days.
There's an aw-w-w factor with adorable eyes
Or friends so fluffy we're gonna die.
