Picture of a Fox as Cover of Book III

We have received word that, despite what we all assumed, the illustration on the cover of Book III will not be a green dragon, but a fox. We managed to get a hold of Random House earlier today, and when asked about the reasoning behind this decision, a representative told us that they were “pressured by some creepy men in black cloaks.’

When contacted, 20th Century Fox denied any association with Random House’s decision, saying, “It’s only expected that [Random House] would make such a decision. Obviously they are paying tribute to us, Fox 2000, as we are making an incredibly fantastic film which vastly overshadows the book. For example, not only are our Urgals much more plausible, we obviously know better than Christopher what his characters look like. Generally, Eragon the movie will negate the book. It’s only obvious.”
