bad covers

I haven't read it yet, but this is definitely the winner of "worst cover of any book I bought in 2013":

I suppose it's not insanely awful, it just seems oddly amateurish art for something put out by a major publisher, even given that it was the 80s and the book's targeting the young-adult market.

It has inner illustrations too:

which I find sufficiently off-putting that I actually try to read quicker to get off those pages...

Has anybody picked up anything worse recently?

For some reason I quite like the amateurish art :-). I think it's funny. Anyway, I hope it's a fun read!
