Maybe there was a mistranslation. Nyra must be a kiwi in the Chinese version.

Wow, the Chinese and Japanese covers are just stunning. If I could, I would totally try to get my hands on them. It's always interesting to get a different perspective on the books through the cover art!

I don't know if I'd say the Chinese covers are better than the American ones. They are better in color schemes and composition, but a lot of them have more to do with the movie than the actual books (to the point of making Gylfie some sort of Pygmy Owl) and they're all cartoony, whereas the American covers are an inconsistent mixture of realistic covers and cartoon covers (though the cartoony American covers are really, REALLY cartoony while the Chinese covers at least have a consistent style that is slightly more realistic than the most cartoonish of the American covers.) Some of the Chinese covers are better than a lot of the American covers, but I don't think all of them are. The Japanese covers are still way better than them both.
