Joan Smith: Valerie

Valerie by Joan Smith was published by Fawcett in July 1981 and it's the last I have that Allan Kass illustrated for her. If you find one that's not listed in this blog, please contact me. Valerie is the story of a girl who visits her aunt's house and finds it full of odd relatives and mysteries.

Allan Kass illustrates our couple outside a house that has some oddly shaped trees! I like that the hero and heroine are enchanted with one another. While simple at first glance, the flowering vine and lead windows lend a bit of detail to this cover.
