New Scholastic “Prisoner of Azkaban” paperback cover unveiled at LeakyCon

As we reported earlier, the new Scholastic cover for the paperback version of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was set to be released during the Opening Ceremonies at the LeakyCon convention in Portland, Oregon which several members of the MuggleNet staff are attending.

Those ceremonies have now taken place and Cheryl Klein, Scholastic’s content editor for the Harry Potter book series, removed the cover and exposed the image seen here as provided by MuggleNet’s Kat Miller.

The image was drawn by artist extraordinaire Kazu Kibuishi, who also completed Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets covers earlier this year.

What do you think of the new cover celebrating the 15th anniversary of Scholastic’s original release of Sorcerer’s Stone? Are you happy with the choice of scene used by Kazu? What do you want to see for the impending cover of Goblet of Fire? Let us know in the comments below.
