Mr. Ripley's Enchanted Books - Book Cover Wars + Voters Competition (Round FIVE) 2020/2021


Before we close the doors for the last time on Mr. Ripley's Enchanted Books, we like to take the opportunity to thank you all for the support you have shown us in the last twelve years or so. It has been a hard and very sad decision to make as it has been a fantastic journey and one that I've enjoyed very much. However, we would like to do one more fantasy tango with Mr. Ripley's Enchanted Book Cover Wars. It's been a highlight for many years so let us go out with a BANG or maybe just a fizz! 

We are looking to find your favourite book cover ONCE again for 2020/2021. We do this to support the creative heroes of the children's book world; the illustrators and the creative teams behind all the books we love. So, please share this exciting adventure with your friends and followers on social media #BOOKCOVERWARS. Everyone is welcome so come and vote and share the FUN. 

Mr. Ripley's Enchanted Book Cover War Rules: There will be five weekly heats (The Last One) we are having 7 book covers to vote for. All heat winners will make the grand final plus one/two book covers (Wild Card Entry) with the highest amount votes will go through from any of the heats.
