	As far as I understand Greenwillow is an imprint of Harper
Collins' childrens publishing division. It's certainly listed as such at


	What do people think about the Greenwillow cover? I've only seen
low quality scans of it, but I do think it looks better than the UK one. I
originally was going to buy a US copy, but I got tired of waiting for my
amazon order to arrive, cancelled it, and picked up a UK edition here in a
London book shop. It's very sad of me I know, but I would buy another copy
if the US edition was especially well produced. Certainly Greenwillow did
a wonderful job on the Year Of The Griffin, much better than the UK
edition IMO.
