Cover Critic: The Trolley to Yesterday (1998)

Cover Critic is our periodic survey of readers and fans about the various artwork and illustrations of the books in the Bellairs Corpus.
This “time” we showcase the second American paperback edition of The Trolley to Yesterday, published in 1998 by Puffin Books.  The front illustration features Johnny, Fergie, Professor Childermass, and tag-along Aurelian Townsend flying through the sky toward the time trolley.

Paul Zelinsky created the cover artwork which would go on to be used again for the paperback release in 2004.  I’m not sure Zelinsky got Childermass quite right here but so it goes.  What say you?
