Judging a book by its cover

by David Haber

We finally have images of the covers of the American and British versions of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and if these covers are anything like previous Harry Potter book covers have been, these new covers potentially tell us a lot of what is going to happen in Book 7.

No, i rather doubt the dragon's hide is weak enough for spells to work on them, for two main reasons:

1) If the half-giant Hagrid is difficult to jinx, the full dragon most certainly be.

2) The dragons at the TriWizard tournament were hard put to stay still, and were bound by ropes. if the wizards could jinx or hex it, they would have done that instead.

You can't just Imperius a dragon... Their skin is very hard, spells don't work on them.
If you don't remember, Krum put a spell on the dragon's eye, because it is hard to put a spell through their skin.

You know... I think Hogwarts looks rather iced, but there is a light coming from within. Does this mean there are dementors surrounding Hogwarts?

why is there a stag on the sleeve? does this mean that james have an important role in the 7th book?

i have got an idea from thiago's comment. j.k rowling mentioned that viktor krum make appearance in ly hallows. so does he put a spell on that dragon's eye, some dark magic that can tame dragons? and may be krum helps our trio...

The dragon cannot be Dumbledore as J.K Rowling has confirmed he is definately . However, it could be a representative of Dumbledore, sent by him to help Harry on his quest. The question of the village on the cover being Godric's Hollow is a good estimation as Harry does say that he would like to visit Godric's Hollow and his parent's graves.
Lorah makes an excellent point about the stag on the sleeve because James Potter was an animagus (turned into a deer) so does this mean that James somehow help Harry defeat Voldemort in the seventh and final book?

I too doubt that the dragons been imperiused. The main reason is, it's an unforgiveable curse. And even if six people hit it in the eye, who would have control? It's just all wrong.

I also see a face reflected in the left lense of Harry's glasses. (UK version/our right)

is it just a coincidence that harry and voldemort are wearing the same robes...and are they the same color of the ones eaters wear?

Posted by Patty on June 18, 2007 5:45 PM

They are the same color. Traditional eater garb are black hooded robes with some kind of mask. Voldemort never wears a mask as everyone knows who he is.

about the american cover, could it be that harry is somehow calling down the dragon? and could the dragon have some connection with dumbledore? as for ron and hermione being dressed up, did we all forget about the wedding? fluer and bills...and harry, who's probably too busy with horcruxes, had no time to get dressed up and ready and probably came at the last minute of the wedding. and THEN, something most have happened that they took off right away

the gleam in harry's glasses in the uk edition, looks an awful lot like fire... hmmmm is that connecting with the dragon, or with fawkes, or a mere fire? and i think its a goblin, after all yes, dobby would risk his life, but remember, they left him out of the movies, and if he had any imoprtant part, (especially helping the trio at the final battle) im sure jo would have said something. but look at the ears, they're pointy, like goblins and the nails are long. but if it is a house elf, its most likely krecher... the sword could be godric grffindor's because of the ruby there. for the ppl around, could it be the eaters? after all, they are always with vodemort...

Is it possible for an animagi to become a dragon? If so the dragon might turn out to be Aberforth, the barman at the Hog's Head, who is believed to be Dumbledore's brother. If he is dumledore's brother he could be a very powerful wizard, so therefore able to turn into something as big as a dragon.
