Children's or Teen?

I have noticed that a lot of covers in the Children's section are trying to look a bit older than they are catalogued. For example (children's are on the left, teen on the right):

Has anyone else noticed this? Post your covers if you have!
Maybe publishers want to reach a wider audience, or a different audience. Do you think children want to read more grown-up books? Or do you think they should be cataloged in the Teen section instead?


  1. I think children want to FEEL more grown-up.

    Also, these particular children's books could actually be for younger teens that are not quite ready for the YA section.
