Phyllis A. Whitney: Secret of the Missing Footprint

December 1974 is Signet's publication date for Phyllis A.Whitney's Secret of the Missing Footprint. This is a story about Marcie who had to stay the summer with her aunt and uncle while her parents vacationed in Europe! She meets Timothy and he shows her the old quarries nearby. Soon some of her uncle's prehistoric rocks are stolen and they decide to find out who is taking them and why.

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.
