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.

Allan Kass illustrates two teens digging for the treasure in an eerie spot. I like the action pose of the cover and the expressions on the their faces as they check to see if someone is coming. There is an urgency that Kass gets across to the reader that they need to find the treasure and quickly!

Allan Kass shows our young couple watching a dancing lady on the lawn of a dark mansion. I like the Victorian mansion and the feeling of space as you see the grounds. Our couple are dressed warmly for evening sleuthing with jackets and jeans. It's cute that they're holding hands because that seems to give evidence that they care for each other. I also like the gleaming green glow that Allan uses on this cover which echoes the title!

Allan Kass illustrates our kids from the back as they sit in a tree and watch the house for clues. I like that he felt secure enough to only give us a profile of the girl and none of the boy! The house has some grand Victorian details. It's a great, imaginative cover that I hope you enjoy!

Allan Kass was an avid skier, so he must have enjoyed illustrating this cover! We see the siblings on skis as they look down at a mansion with a mysterious person walking away from it. I like the snow covered tree next to them and their chunky coats and hats. Great cover!

Allan Kass shows our young people near a mysterious castle and ripe for adventure. I like all of the purple shades and the relatively few details of this cover. As always, Allan's people illustrations are correct and to scale.
