• Tiger
  • Fairy
  • Options


A book cover redesign for a whimsical fairy tale by Gregory McGuire. What the Dickens is the story of a rogue tooth fairy told to three children by their cousin during a dangerous storm. These covers represent two different designs for the book as well as some unused options.

The first cover shows the title character in a tiger's mouth because What-the-Dickens' tiger's tooth is his prized posession and a key element in the story. The second cover plays on the phrase "Skibbereen are never seen," with a fairy almost hidden on a tree stump. The other covers are based on the ideas of a tooth fairy, teeth, and birthday cake, another important item in the story.
