But at the top of the page is the following comment

This view is of the Paperback edition (2004) from Corgi Childrens. The Mass Market Paperback edition (2011) from Corgi Childrens that you originally viewed is the one you'll receive if you click the Add to Basket button at left.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I find Maurice's look as too much "staring", but apart from that, it's a good cover.
The boy looks too much ... "unsteady", so to say, to me, however.
