(out of sequence because I’m saving “The Invisible Dog” to read during Christmas week 2010)
The cover art for the hardback clearly represents the title, which is misleading in itself (there isn't actually a house that shrinks at all) and so, for the paperbacks, other aspects were played up - as seen here, in the 1983 edition.
This is the cover in my beloved 1983 impression and it's interesting to see how the book is sold differently with the cover art.

This is the illustration by Roger Hall that caused my sister & I those worrying moments, showing Sally trying to finish her ride on the carousel.
I like the wrap-around covers, but this is the cover of my edition (which is now 31 years old) and so I thought I'd post it here too.
