The French cover captures an entirely different side of Broken Monsters. After being sent this cover by her French publisher, Beukes wrote on her site that she is “completely in love with it and beside myself”. Laurent Philibert-Caillat is responsible for the French translation. He is no stranger to her work, as he translated her other novels too.

Have a look at the bright, but still very eerie, cover of the French edition and see what fans have had to say about it:
