Why can't the adults have the same cover as kids it's a good book and people shouldn't fell embarrassed about reading it.
Lily, 15, Cornwall

It's scary, what's up with Harry's face! Not as good as the others but who cares. As long as all the pages are there!
Claire, 14, Reigate

Why is Harry so ugly?
Catherine, 13, Oxford

I think the new covers are amazing. They are really mysterious, especially the adult version! Now I want to read the book more than ever!
Lucy, 13, Altrincham

I am going insane trying to figure out who the HBP is and what this cover could mean. At least the Adult version gives something away... advanced potions eh? It's interesting that both U.K and American editions have Dumbledore on.. I wonder what that could mean...
Claire, 12, Chesham

I think this is really good as you can tell how much Harry had grown since first year! I like the fact that Dumbledore is on it too. It looks really magical.

Caitlin, 14, Glasgow

I like the way Dumbledore and Harry are close in this book. I don't like the blueness of it though.
Rhianna, 15, Worcester

I was really shocked! I didn't expect them to release just the cover, I just logged into the website and there's this huge picture of Harry and Dumbledore. I think the cover looks really unusual and exciting. Especially the picture of Dumbledore, it's just the look on his face!
Becky, 10, Oswestry

I like it. It's funky!
Ned, 14, Oakham

Does it REALLY matter what the cover looks like?
Emily, 11, Thirsk

It's quite good, it makes you wonder what is going to happen in the book and why they are duelling together.
Debbie, 13, Brigg

It looks slightly boring. I'm wondering like crazy what's going to happen. J.K could have given us more clues.
Rebecca, 14, Essex

It looks great - I can't wait for the new book. I am such a big Harry Potter fan! I do think that the book cover doesn't really matter, though, I'm sure the book will be FANTASTIC anyway!
Emma, 10, Leeds

It rocks! I can't wait until Saturday the 16th of July 2005 until it is released! It certainly looks interesting. But who is the Half Blood Prince? That's what I want to know!
David, 12, Fife

I prefer the Prisoner of Azkaban cover. This ones kind of weird in my opinion!
Laura, 14, Cornwall

I'm really disappointed, I think it is far too basic for a Harry Potter cover. Although we should find out what it means when we read it!
Mustafa, 14, Stafford

Well at least the adult cover clears up what I've been wondering about for ages!!! The colours clash on it - blue and green don't go with orange very well! I don't really like it!!! It's just given us more to wonder about - roll on July 16th!
Julia, 14, Belfast

Wow! It makes me think that the sixth book is going to be VERY interesting! I can't wait until it comes out!
Sabeeta, 13, Bradford

It looks a bit boring, I prefer the other book covers they look so much more eye catching!
Rachel, 12, Lancashire

I like it, I imagine Dumbledore more like that than how he is in the film anyway!!
Rachel, 13, Southampton

*COOL*! It just makes me want to read the book even more! I'm glad Dumbledore is on there because I think he's a fabulous character. He has so many cool ways of doing stuff - he ROCKS! Now we can see Dumbledore is important in this book!
Fleur, 8, Shropshire

This is the best book cover so far, and it makes you wonder what Dumbledore is protecting himself and Harry from. I love the colours and it shows how mature Harry has gotten over the years. I didn't really like the ootp cover as it was slightly boring but this is FANTASTIC!!
Chris, 14, Milngavie

Its ok. But I think the American version is much cooler.
Poorni, 12, Sheffield

I thought that it would be more impressive, I am disappointed.
Ruth, 13, Swansea

Like all books we cannot judge it by its cover.
Nicola, 10, Peterborough

It's not as good as J.K'S other Harry Potter book covers. But it's what inside the book that counts.
Rebecca, 14, Essex

The US and the UK cover both have Dumbledore... Is Dumbledore the Half-Blood Prince?
Eden, 11, Newcastle

It's alright, I suppose, but a bit too much like all the other covers. It would've been interesting to see a different kind of cover... maybe giving away a bit more of the plot! The 'adult' cover seems a bit more mysterious and intriguing, though. The US covers always seem to be better somehow anyway!
Jenna, 14, London

The main one is odd, it's a lot less real than the others but they are all cool!
Alex, 14, Harrogate

It looks so exciting, I can't wait for the book!
Carly, 12, Surrey

I think it's amazing. its better than what I expected but I like the other versions as well.
Jade, 11, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

Wow, it's great, I love it!!! It's made me realise that the book is coming out so soon!!! I'm so excited.
Katie, 14, Rishton

I think the cover looks good though I think that it would have been better if it were a surprise.
Sally, 14, Oakham

Nice to see Dumbledore on it for once! All of them look amazing! Can't wait for it to come out.
Rowan, 13, Haywards Heath

WELL, this certainly gives me something to wonder over until I go insane. I think the most telling is the Adult UK cover, and I definitely have a new candidate for who I suspect is the Prince. I don't really like these covers as much as I liked the others.
Stefani, 13, Burnaby

I think it looks good, but I like the cover of number 5 better. I would have expected the cover to be purple because it is about a prince and usually purple represents royalty. But I still like it.
Heena, 11, Preston

FANTASTIC! I want this book so much! The book cover-once again-reveals nothing much about the plot however its interesting to note that Harry and Dumbledore shown in the pensieve must be important part of the story! Its different to the other covers which is fantastic! The title also is different as we have no idea what role the Half blood prince will play-or who it will be. I cant wait until July 16th!!
Ryan, 15, Enniskillen

Oh my god! I had a dream about the book a few months ago and the cover was green just like the American version and now it is! I think the illustration it really BEAUTIFUL!
Layla, 13, London

I like the US version better. But the UK version hints better on the plot of the book. Can't wait till July 16!
Angelina, 14, USA

I think the fourth and fifth were much better, this looks as if it hasn't been finished.
Sian, 12, Spain

I love them ! I especially like the UK children's book cover. It gives the impression of a great battle, and shows a mighty extent of Dumbledore's powers. July 16th could not come soon enough.
Catherine, 15, Burnley

I really like the covers, they're really colourful. But they don't give much of the story away. I really don't like how they've kept us waiting!
Ilana, 15, Boca

It's quite cool, it makes me wonder what's going to happen in the book, with flames(UK version) on the book. It seems that Harry and Dumbledore will be close in this one!
Thomas, 15, Oslo

I think it's a good cover. I prefer this one to the US version.
Ashley, 14, Paris

I really really like the new covers. I can't wait for the new book to come out. It's going to be great!
Clare, 7, Guildford

It's ok - I think I prefer the US version of the cover though.
Emily, 12, Cardiff
