Today’s cover is a fine example of a “Sitting Clemmie”. Sure, we’ve seen this artwork before, but like so many McGinnis covers, it’s worth seeing again. Um, except it’s not a McGinnis cover according to Shine & Shine’s A MacDonald Potpourri. It sure looks like McGinnis to me, but they say it’s an unknown artist so I guess it’s an unknown artist.

I’m not surprised that she’s still wearing those sandals; it must have taken her a half hour to get them on in the first place.

Have you seen me? I am the 11th USA printing of Clemmie, printed in 1978 by Fawcett as Gold Medal 14015-6 (ISBN-10 0449137309, ISBN-13 9780449137307). My cover price is $1.75 and I have the same artwork as today’s cover.
