Book Cover Throwback: Bridge to Terabithia

This week’s Book Cover Throwback: Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson.

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

What I Love about This Cover:  This was the cover of the book when I read it in 6th grade, though it’s changed a lot since then. Some of the newer covers give a stronger indication of the fantastical elements in the story, but I love the simplicity of this cover. It gives no hint at the chaos that’s in store for Jesse and Leslie.

What I Don’t Love about This Cover: Probably that it doesn’t give a hint of the magic.

About the author

Raven Oak

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood, Class-M Exile, and the collection Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays.

She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on, enjoying cartography, or staring at the ocean.

She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.
