The Wonder of Foreign Editions by Jo Franklin

One of the brilliant things about being an author is seeing the cover of your book for the first time. Did you know that authors don’t have much say in the cover for their book? Sometimes the publisher will ask for author approval, but normally it is too late to change the design so the author has to say ‘I love it!’.

My book Help I’m an Alien is published in four different countries and has four different covers. The illustrators are Aaron Blecha, Anton Reidel, Marty Kelley and Henri Fellner.

Here are the covers for the four different countries. Can you work out which country, each book was published in? Which is your favourite cover design?
