    been told in general terms what the story was about, and so the covers didn't have much relationship to the books.  For example, in the first Ballantine edition of the Hobbit there was a lion in the illustration, but there's no lion in the book.

    You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!
