Judging a Carnegie book by its cover - we're split!

More Carnegie 'coverage'. The three of us (M, Little M and Daddy Cool) are split on how we feel about these covers. Some of us love them while others show much less enthusiasm.....What do you think?

The Flask - Nicky Singer
M: Didn't like picture of a girl's face.
Little M: Didn't like the photo either but liked the flask illustration.
The Traitors - Tom Becker
Cover for The Traitors by Tom Becker
M & Little M: Too jumbled, too grey, confusing, looks like stitches
Daddy Cool: Liked it. Looks like someone's in prison counting days.
Dying to Know You - Aidan Chambers
Cover for Dying To Know You by aidan Chambers
M: Didn't like the goldfish.
Little M & Daddy Cool: Really liked the goldfish.
 The Prince Who Walked With Lions - Elizabeth Laird

Little M: can't read the text easily; looks Lion Kingey.

Itch - Simon Mayo

This Dark Endeavour - Kenneth Oppel

The Terrible Thing That Happened To Barnaby Brocket - John Boyne

Little M & Daddy Cool: Can't read the text; looks all superheroey; too much colour blending.
M: Actually, I haven't got any strong views either way on this one.
What do you think?
