Controversy Report: Cover Cut-Out Coincidence?
Pointing out similar book covers is not the hard-hitting children’s lit knowledge that I feel you deserve. It’s just fun. So don’t worry about itÂ and take a look at the latest similarity that came to my attention:
Firegirl by Tony Abbot. And…
Carlos is Gonna Get It by Kevin Emerson.
Side by side:
Firegirl is a great book, and sports one of my favorite covers of the last couple years. I’m guessing I’m not alone. While F.G. did it best, with the burnt, disconnected link, the Carlos version is also rather attention getting.
