Those who want their Shannon Hales to match can now be happy--here's the new hardcover edition of Forest Born that matches the earlier books in the series (at left)! (I like it lots better than the old version. I never liked the sleeves on the old one. In fact, I would go so far as to say that they are my Least Favorite Ficitonal Sleeves of all time).
