The Book 1 & Book 2 Original Covers
The original covers of Book 1 and Book 2 (illustrated by Adam McCauley) have been replaced by new ones (illustrated by Douglas Holgate) because the people who publish my books thought my covers would look better with much bigger pictures of me. (Don’t start saying I’m conceited. It wasn’t my idea.)
There are lots of characters in my books, and most of them were pictured on the original covers. If you don’t know who everyone is, here are my lists:
Top Row—Mom, Carol Moriwaki (she was supposed to be in Book #1, but that part got cut out), a white mouse (if you don’t know why, you’ll have to read the book), Josh Lunares (he’s in Book #3), Capt. Chee Seemak, Dad
Second Row—??? (I think this is a self-portrait of Adam McCauley!)
Third Row—Glenora Jean Prott, Abraham Lincoln (he really is in the book, I promise!)
Fourth Row—Geejape Rott (the most blood-thirsty vampire in Massachusetts), Rita Pimental (she’s in Book #3), Dr. Frank N. Cheez
Fifth Row—Kandy DeLeon (in Book #3), Georgie, Goon
Sixth Row—Principal Crespo, Lana Shen, Kevin Welch
Seventh Row—Deeb (the way greatest dog in Massachusetts), Officer Crompton, Ee-Gorg, Granpa, Glenn Phillips, Livia Grant (also in Book #3)
Top Row—The Great Georgio, a garter snake (actually there are lots), Lenny Kalecki, Robbie Turner (I didn’t have room for his twin brother, Evan), Aunt Lois (not really my aunt), R. Cheshire MacAronie, Esq. (he’s mostly in the first book)
Second Row—a gnome (actually in the book)
Third Row—Ronald Linderman, Scott Dutcher
Fourth Row—Alex Welch, Ee-Gorg (the dim-witted), Dr. Frank N. Cheez (Ee-Gorg’s brilliant master)
Fifth Row—Georgie, Goon, Deeb (nobody has a better dog!)
Sixth Row—Lana Shen, Kevin Welch, Ty Atkins
Seventh Row—Mookie, a bufflehead duck, Marci Housefield, Sir Cam, Sam Ramprakash, Uncle Bud (Granpa)
Who knows, the old covers might become collector’s items.
Your book wasn’t bad. BTW vampires don’t exist. I like the original copies better. IMO you should have left out the extra chapters. Just saying. Keep that in mind for your next book(there better be a sixth book).
I agree about vampires!
I like both covers.
The “extra chapters” in which book?
I’m thinking about book #6.
I like the original cover.
Some days I look at one and like it better…some days the other. Final result: I like them both.
I personally think that the original cover was better possibly because I have the original cover on my first book but I like the other ones to.
I like ’em both, too.
The first book is amazing I can’t wait till I read the next book
Wow! Thanks, Kaden.
I have and like the old cover because it shows a lot of the charictors
I feel the same about the original covers…but I also really like the new covers (maybe because the Cheesie image is LARGER!)
i have read the first book with the original cover
I Like both covers and all of your books. I don’t have a favorite book. Do you?
Not really. I like them all…for different reasons.
I’m doing a library contest to try and win an ipad mini or $50 Barnes and Noble gift card. So far I’ve read 3 books, out of 5, including your first book! I really enjoyed it. It even has the old cover on it. Hopefully I can find the rest of the books in your series and use them for the contest.
P.S I prefer the old covers rather than your new ones, I like how it shows everyone in the story, and to me the illustrations look way better.
I like them bvoth.
Hey, whens Chessie Mack number 6 coming out that is gonna be awesome right
._. Im derpy <3
I don’t know when #6 will come out. I’m still writing it.
I like the old covers much better.
I miss the old covers
I actually like them both.
Are you writing more books?
I just finished book #5, so I am taking a rest. Whew!
I have numbers one and two with old covers and autographs. Does that mean that they would be super collectors items? I have the third book too, but of course with the new cover.
I also think that the old covers and illustrations are better.
This website is awesome!!!
marry me cheesie! or georgie!
Blegh! Gross! I’m not Cheese, but I can tell that they will both say NO!!!
Our library has the original covers. I like the new ones better though 😉
I like the original covers better.
I think that the original artist is better too.
This book was awesome.
