15Harry Potter And The Rat Chess King
The Cover - The Albanian edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
When it comes to foreign covers of Harry Potter novels, they usually show bizarre representations of actual events from the book. The Albanian cover of the first book goes for a different approach. The artist who drew this cover
clearly longs for a world where Harry Potter crosses over with the Redwall novels. In this imaginary book, Harry must defeat Matthias the mouse in a game of Chess in order to save his world from destruction. For pieces, they used the kidnapped members of Slender Man's family.
At no point during Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone does Harry put on a big rat hat and play a game of chess with a giant rodent. Right now, this looks more like a scene from a Furry convention than from Hogwarts. They also appear to be playing on a Chess table (rather than a board). It looks to be some sort of four-player variant of Chess, as the pieces are black, white, purple and indigo.
