Lookalikes: Last seen . . .


Heeeyyy. Does this little girl look familiar?
I've been unpacking some boxes of "the good stuff" which I had stored at my Mom's because I've moved so often the last couple of years. These are boxes of books that I absolutely didn't want to lose track of no matter what.
Anyway, if you think you recognize this barefoot miss, you're probably right. Not sure? Click here and check out this previous post of mine.

BTW: It's a great collection of stories - highly recommended!

Wow. That's odd. Who woulda' thunk it? *scratches head*

That's too funny! I can't believe how many look alike covers there are out there but 3 with the exact same cover is a bit ridiculous.

Yeah... my ARC of Velva Jean learns to drive had this cover. But, then... the printed book had the other cover. I guess this photo gets used a lot!

Oh my gosh, yes, that is funny! I have seen this happen alot. there is actually a blog dedicated to book cover doubles but I can't remember what it is. If I can find it I will post it .

That is just too much! You're great at finding these!

Wow! I wonder why they do that - clearly the public can recognize it as a duplicate. Oh well, another mystery.

Wow...after reading your other post, I'd have to say it looks like that little lady has been making the rounds. Of course it really a great looking cover so I can totally understand why it has been used so often. :)

That's too funny. I love when you guys find these. Sometimes a cover seems familiar to me but I can never figure out from where.

It's so weird that so many books try to recycle the same cover. You seem to be an expert at ferreting them out.
