That looks to me very much like our French covers artist, Kemar's (Marc Simonetti) work.

Does anyone know if this is the case? :D

Compare Nanny Ogg in the picture below to the one above.

I think you're right, Tony. In addition to Nanny, compare the belt buckles on the witches' hats and look at the way the human arms are drawn on both pix..very angular.

If it is him, then I think it's great that he's getting recognition on such a mainstream UK book. :clap: Well deserved.

Great cover, and great title! :D Haven't seen that picture before Tony, thanks for putting it up.

Just saw this posted elsewhere: Terry Pratchett's Johnny and the Bomb: A Time-tickingly Tremendous Musical.

At that price I think I'll pass. :?

I wonder if that will be another cobbled together version like that "The Spirit of Fantasy". :roll:
