    Ooh! Shiny! I like it. A touch of the first cover (Reason’s silhouette) but with more colour, which in turn gives it more life, light, and vibrance. Nod to the butterflies and nod to the fitting title with its double meaning.

    My cat Holly just typed:


    I kid you not.

    Does this mean I’ll stop thinking of Magic! Magic! Magic! Oi! Oi! Oi! when the punky Chunky Chips Ahoy! commercial airs on television? Probably not.

    Wow, beautiful–and the name is so logical in retrospect. 🙂

    very nice cover. i like the little flash of light on the tip of the ‘g’ in magic.

    little willow: magic’s silhouette is also floating in the tree on magic lessons, so that image really ties all three books together…

    Well, you know how much I love that title. And I really like the colors on the cover. The butterflies, though, for someone who may be new to the series, just has a touch of magic pink fairy learns ballet to it. I was hoping for something a tad darker.

  5. marrije on #

    ooh, great title. i actually got that ‘oh yes, exactly right’-tingle, so as far as I’m concerned it’s the perfect title.

    unlike diana, i’m very pleased with the lightness of the butterflies (though i see your point of magic pink fairy learns ballet, diana :-)). i fear the dark of this book (while looking forward to it immensely, of course), anything that tells me things might be alright in the end after all is okay with me. though now i fear even more there will be people floating off to heaven…

    and i will miss you talking about m!m!m!o!o!o!, justine. i’ve grown rather attached to it 🙂

    i loves it.

    *enchanting*. even if i had never heard of you or your books before and i saw that book in a bookstore, i would *absolutely* pick it up. i have to reserve my “oh, it’s prefect” judgement, though, since i haven’t read magic lessons yet. it’s quite literally zooming toward my house, however…amazon shipped it yesterday. 🙂 so..in a few days it will be read. yay!!

    p.s. maybe now you could encourage scott to show us what the last days is going to look like, and then everyone will be *perfectly* content. hee hee

    beautiful! it’s great! wow! when does it come out?

    “magic pink fairy learns ballet”
    ever since i started reading scott’s blog, pink fairies have been popping up all over the place. what is going on? 😛
    and again: wow. the cover is fantastic. the title too. eee! excitement!

  9. barry on #

    Awww! I really, really wanted to see M!M!M!O!O!O! buttons and bumperstickers!

  10. shelly rae on #

    them is some gorgeous covers Justine. The only thing better than seeing them all lined up in your posting will be seeing them all lined up on a shelf in the bookstore (just before they fly out the door). Congrats and hurrah!

  11. klages on #

    Damn. I thought Magic! Magic! Magic! Oi! Oi! Oi! *was* the title.

    I think this is better, in terms of marketing, but my inner geek is just a wee bit disappointed.

  12. John H on #

    did i call her magic? what was i thinking – i meant reason, of course…

  13. Rachel Brown on #

    Wow, those are all beautiful. I like Magic lessons best, though, because of the tree.

  14. cherie priest on #

    I also loves it! You’re a lucky lady to have such fine covers as this. 🙂

  15. Darice on #

    The cheeriness of the butterflies and lights and clouds makes me fear VERY MUCH for Reason and her friends… It’s bright and cheery, so something must be wrong!

    I like it; it looks really lovely. And now I’m even more eager to read it.

  16. jennifer on #

    Freaking gorgeous!

  17. lawence schimel on #

    Pretty cover, but where’s the darned finished ms.???!!!


  18. margo on #

    Mouth-watering, Justine. And you couldn’t think pink-fairy after seeing those first two covers.

  19. holly on #

    pretty! perfect!

  20. dylan on #

    cool. looks like a good read. Dylan

  21. jonathan on #

    can you say oooooh? that’s lovely. will now need to dump australian editions and buy pretty matching usian editions.

  22. lili on #

    ooh, so pretty. i like the references to the sydney/new york weather with the snow and the blue and the clouds.


  23. Jon Y on #

    Congrats, Justine. It looks great.

  24. Jill on #

    Oh, that’s so gorgeous! I can’t wait to read it…I’m assuming it comes out in March 2007, following the same pattern as the rest?

  25. fangirl on #

    what you going to write next?

  26. Lauren Cerand on #

    I LOVE the butterflies… it’s gorgeous, although I am laughing right now because I really thought the title was Magic! Magic! Magic! Oi! Oi! Oi!

  27. innle on #

    Oooh, tres nice!

  28. holly on #

    The covers are gorgeous. That’s a lot of why i picked up the first book. I DO judge a book by its cover… Can’t wait for book three. 🙂
