There seem to be a ton of beautiful, important looking literary fiction jackets out there that prominently feature an illustrated finch or a sparrow. Birds really seem to do it for people. Here's what I'm talking about:


















They're pretty and stuff, but I prefer pure manipulation in my animal covers. Go ahead and gimme puppy porn.




Sometimes, a dog can be a short story collection's best friend.




Could the lamb be the new dog?




This novel is entitled "History Lesson For Girls." Pretty, pretty, pretty pony!




"How Not to Sell a Book to Cat Lovers?" (I laughed.)


Have puppy dog eyes on a book cover ever lead you to purchase?
