Is this a new version of Howl?  I checked Amazon and the only version
there is the one I have: a hardcover, the back of which gives blurbs and
quotes about other DWJ books, not about Howl itself.

I too *hate* it when the back cover gives too much away about the
storyline.  Or--and this has happened too--gives an inaccurate summary of
the plot.  It's kind of like movie trailers these days--they give away so
much of the movie that who needs to spend $8 to go see it?
