I really enjoy ms.Grandpre’s artwork. its very modern, yet simple, and I think that gives quite a mystery to the style of the US books.

I went to the Marie Grandpre Exhibition in Cedar Rapids, Iowa And it was fantastic!

I think she really does have extreme talent, as there was much more work there than just her Harry Potter works…however i did tend to linger there MUCH longer! XD

I love her work with Harry Potter. I’ve seen the cover art for other countries’ books, and I personally like Mary GrandPre’s the best.
