Recently Cheryl Klein was participating in a child_lit discussion concerning covers and how they come about. On the subject she has given us this piece on her own blog, with special attention paid to her recent cover:

And posting on the same day, a bit of kiddie lit kismet, George O'Connor shows us some of the alternate covers he considered for his book Journey Into Mohawk Country.
