My Paperback Cape: The Unlikely Odyssey of a Bookworm
Cover Designer: Kristin Abbott
Comments about cover design
The illustrator Kristin Abbott completely captures the way that the protagonist of the novel, Jacqueline, takes on the personality characteristics of her favorite book characters in order to grow herself into a hero. The cape shows the superhero feeling Jacqueline has developed through reading, and you can see the words of pages of books on her cape as well as the books she reads behind her.
