Cover Curiosity: Chicken or Egg?
I wasn’t planning to do a cover curiosity today (it’s been a while since the last one), but I was looking though my books and came across Pablo by Rascal:
(Bonus points for the one name author/illustrator, BTW).
I looked at it, and said to myself “I thought this book was called Ergo.”
So I looked up Ergo:
Ahh, that’s why I was confused: the pair share a certain (and I’m sure, completely inadvertent) resemblance.
Ready for a little side-by-side?
Both are bold, simple, and effective. A couple great covers.
Any other books that fit with this group?
