PBOTD 29th June: Gillian Baxter - Horses in the Glen
Today's book continues my series on bad covers. I do wonder what influence a bad cover has on your opinion of a book. I wonder if I'd like yesterday's PBOTD, Janet Must Ride, more, if the first thing that came into my mind every time I thought of it was that cover. Perhaps that's a childhood thing: where you weld the visual into the imagination with a bit more certainty.

The CBC only rarely used the original covers of the books they republished, and although some of their efforts are successes, a lot aren't. Keep checking in with the blog for the next couple of days, and you'll see a few more.
The original isn't the most beautiful cover in the pony book world, but it is considerably better than what came after.
