Some of the examples of submitted designs for Maureen Johnson’s coverflip experiment. It really shows that perception is everything here. These were part of the curated collection in collaboration between Maureen and the Huffington Post to select some of the best but lead others to investigate further (young adult books and curation colliding!!!

It wasn’t like in the storybooks. No witches lurked at crossroads disguised as crones, waiting to reward travelers who shared their bread. Genies didn’t burst from lamps, and talking fish didn’t bargain for their lives. In all the world, there was only one place humans could get wishes: Brimstone’s shop. And there was only one currency he accepted. It wasn’t gold, or riddles, or kindness, or any other fairy-tale nonsense, and no, it wasn’t souls, either. It was weirder than any of that.
It was teeth.
