The Ugliest Book Cover Ever

I read Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women (1868) as a youth, but wanted a review of it before I posted my thoughts.  So, I listened to it on CD during my drive to school.  I will post my reaction to the content of the novel later this week, but I had to dedicate an entire post to just the cover art of the book on CD. Have you ever seen an uglier depiction of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy?

Who is responsible for this travesty?  Who decided that this horror belonged on the cover of this CD edition?

I’m pretty sure that Alcott would NOT have approved.  I don’t approve either.  Yikes!

Have you ever seen an uglier book cover?  I’m pretty sure this one takes the cake!
