Simon Snow fans … ready your bookshelves, because something wonderful is coming.

Back in 2015, author Rainbow Rowell introduced the world to Simon Snow with Carry On, a story full of magic, adventure, humor, and romance.

Simon is the Chosen One, but his struggle to perform even the most basic of spells certainly says otherwise. Add in an absent mentor, a fizzled-out relationship with his now ex-girlfriend, and a magic-eating monster that happens to look just like Simon and … well … nobody said life at the Watford School of Magicks was simple. And of course there’s Baz, Simon’s vampire roommate who he may not actually despise as much as he’s led himself to believe. Wink wink.

The original hardcover edition of Carry On had a bold-colored silhouette of Simon, Baz, and Watford on the front cover. Meanwhile, the paperback cover featured detailed artwork of Simon and Baz illustrated by Kevin Wada. Wada then went on to create beautiful matching covers for the various hardcover editions of Wayward Son and the forthcoming finale Any Way the Wind Blows.

Now, for book collectors who appreciate matching sets, a hardcover edition of Carry On featuring Kevin Wada’s original artwork from the paperback copy is finally available! This special edition includes an exclusive case stamp and new illustrated endpapers. Pre-orders are available now, and the book will be released on June 8.

The final book in the Simon Snow trilogy, Any Way the Wind Blows, will arrive on July 6. Make sure to pre-order your copy today if you haven’t done so already!
