Cover Curiosity: Hide and Seek
Sometimes they’re pretty close, sometimes they’re quite close, but rarely do two covers look as similar as the pair we have today. While one is for adults and one is for kids, I couldn’t help but share. First up, a book you’re probably familiar with:
Mockingbird by Katheryn Erskine
And now, for the match:
Long Drive Home by Will Allison
Side by Side:
Dang. The use of the same stock photo makes this pair near record-setting in their similarity.
(Thanks to author/illustrator Katie Davis for the tip.)
