Michael Leddy of Orange Crate Art came across this Flickr gallery of old Scholastic book covers. I loved these books when I was growing up, and recognized many of them in the gallery. Shown here are four of my favorites: 100 Pounds of Popcorn, Encyclopedia Brown Strikes Again, Beyond Belief, and Spooky Magic (the art is terrific on this one!).
