Apparently Penguin books is known for putting edgy covers on some of the books in their Modern Classic editions, but this time a lot of people are questioning this one. I’m referring to the cover on Penguin’s new edition of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Penguin officials seem to be standing by their decision. But the cover has come under some criticism in forums where its been posted. Some people have suggested it reminded them of Jon Benet Ramsey. Others have said they thought the cover more appropriate for an edition of Lolita. Me? I’m mostly stunned.
