THE FRIDAY FACE-OFF #2: Mummification



Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme here at Books by Proxy. Join me every Friday as I pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe.

Hey everyone! I’m joining in this new book meme called “The Friday Face-Off” which is hosted by Books by Proxy and this week’s theme is: MUMMIFICATION!!!

For this week, I have decided to choose the Goosebumps book “The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb  and compare two covers that I will choose the winner for:


Scholastic– 2003





Scholastic Paperbacks – 2009





And the winner is…




I enjoyed this cover more because it looks more detailed and scary and I just loved the way that the daytime light glows behind the mummy, giving the image an eerie glow!

  1. I’m with Proxy – this went through my mind too. I like that we’ve all managed to pick something different.
    Love this – you have to love Goosebumps.

  2. This brings back very happy memories when this series was a firm favourite in my Years 4 and 5 classrooms:). An excellent choice for this week! And I completely agree with your favourite – it is the best cover by a long country mile. Glad you took part again:))
