#Poll: Your Favorite Marilyn Fitschen Artwork in #FaceInTheFrost

Marilyn Fitschen, artist and illustrator - and one of John Bellairs's oldest friends - created 12 full page illustrations for The Face in the Frost.  In celebration of its 50th anniversary this year, we want to know which one is your favorite.

Perhaps it’s the sight of Prospero’s house, complete with hippopotamus weather vane? Or maybe it’s our old friend, King Gorm (the Wonderworker)?

Or maybe you prefer something darker, more unsettling – there’s something hanging from the boughs of a tree, there’s the eerie entrance to the forbidden forest, and then there's Five Dials. Need we say more?

Pick your favorite from the list below...and use the spell!
