This is a suitably scary cover by Allan Kass with the heroine teen walking through a field of scarecrows and one about to grab her! It's closer to the adult gothic covers with only the heroine and the ubiquitous mansion with a glowing light inside!

Allan Kass shows our teens entering the cave which is sufficiently mysterious to see! Our heroine carries a lit candle while an older teen watches from behind. We see a spooky mansion outside in the moonlight. I like the heroine's overalls and cute bob haircut.

Allan Kass shows our teens as they watch someone climb the rock wall. We see the hotel in the background and a beautiful view beyond. My copy, unfortunately, has a tear over the water but it doesn't take away from the beauty of Allan's work.

We get a glimpse of the Caribbean in this cover by Allan Kass. Our heroine spies on a pirate while she leans against a brightly blue house! I like the iron decoration and the houseplant details.

This cover by Allan Kass has an oriental flavor as we see our teens spying on the samurai warrior with the figure, the statue, and our heroine's outfit! Allan's children are always great to see because he has the ability to make them age appropriate in both face, expression, and size. I hope you enjoy these covers.

Allan Kass does a great job illustrating teens. I'm surprised that he didn't get more jobs after seeing all of these covers. I like this book with the kids sleuthing at the cave and the menacing house sitting behind them. Note that he signs this book with his initials.

Allan Kass creates a scary cover for this photo with the menacing figure behind the teens who are out late at night sleuthing. I like the use of turquoise and the 70's feel of the clothing.
