Found this book in my local library and fell in love with the cover!
Cover Illustration- Allen Douglas
Cover Design- Maria Elias
My imagination immediately took flight with this cover. Look at the daring rescue of a boy hanging on for dear life on the bottom rung of a ladder over piles of junk. The airship the ladder is attached to hovers amongst the clouds, its patchwork bronze metal very steam punk, but showing a rag tag construction. What is happening? Why does this boy need rescuing from a junk yard? And what type of world is this where there are floating steam airships with housing on top? LOVE IT!
