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.

I really like all of your ideas and theories on this site. I especially like this one. The dragon thing and it being Dumbledore makes a lot of sense too. Dumbledore said he can fully make himself invisible. If the dragon on the cover is an Opaleye dragon (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) then it makes sense because Opaleyes can become invisible too.

after reading the UK comic releif book fantastic beasts and where to find them i beleive that in the US cover Harry is probably reaching out for Fawkes or at least haryy and voldemort can hear Fawkes. the following taken from the book may confirm this "Phoenix song is magical: it is reputed to increase the courage of the pure of heart and to strike fear into the heart of the impure". harry certainly looks determined and brave while voldemort is looking petrified

In the british version if you look at Harry's glasses it looks like a white robe or white beard of some kind. Could it possibly be Dumbledore?

I think the scene on the front cover is taking place in a gringotts vault due to the treasure and circular door behind them. Could also be kreacher holding the sword because JKR told the film producers to include him in ootp because he would play a major role later in the story.

how can Harry be accio'ing something and Voldy be pushing it away, dont you NEED wands to do magic?

--i think that the thing holding the sword is either kreacher or a goblin. Dobby would be wearing a bunch of hats, and a maroon sweater, and also JKR didn't make sure that Winky was in the Goblet of Fire movie so she probably isn't important.

On the British children's cover, I think the figure who's holding a sword is Kreacher. On the Yahoo Movies website, there's a picture of Kreacher with ears that looks like the figure behind Harry.

It looks like Kreacher

I do not know if anyone has mentioned this but does anyone think that when the three are on the dragon it looks like Ginny and not Harmione. Same colour hair as Ron and seems to look younger.

Could the dragon be Filch transfigured, with the help of Harry and Hermione? Just a thought.

Slughorn is older than Dumbledore, ithink he says so to Dumbledore when he tries to make slughorn come back to hogwarts to teach in book 6. And he seems to be a very powerful wizard. He maybe the dragon on the deluxe version.

the "rememberal" on the inside cover could be a divination ball showing a snake: representing either voldemort or Nagini. the snake bites on Harry's arm (if they are snake bites) could be from him ing nagini (or attempting to her). the bites could also be werewolve bites because on the back cover there is a full moon. he could have been bitten by either Lupin of fenrir greyback. (maybe even bill, but it sounds far-fetched.) i agree that it is likely that they are in a high security vault at gringotts on the Uk version. but the american cover looks as if harry could be in the room of love. It seems like the room with the archway and veil at the minestry, (except brighter) and i always thought that room was the room of .
