Controversy Report: Cover Art Rip-Off Continues
A few months back I posted about a curious similarity between the covers of the Vintage Classic edition of “Alice in Wonderland”
and recent Cybils Award winner “A Crooked Kind of Perfect”.
Well, it appears that the trend of keeping feet warm continues on two more recent children’s lit covers. First up is “Deep Down Popular”:
Switching it up a bit with the argyle, but same concept.
Also joining the team is “Kickoff”:
What’s the deal?! Back with the stripes, but in a different setting than the others. Until they make a cover with someone sporting SmartWools (best socks ever), I refuse to be happy about this trend.
*Update* Another warm-footed cover has joined the party. Click here to take a look.
