The New Book Covers for the JGDS Series

Elysabeth Eldering, the author of the Junior Geography Detective Squad, and I (the new illustrator and cover design artist for the series) have been hard at work with four of her latest books, all to be realeased for sale this year. It's an honor to be a part of this wonderful series. Below are the covers of the books, so you can see what I've been up to these past few months.

Here is the cover for State of Successes, the 4th book in the JGDS series and the next book to be released for that.
This is the cover for State of Heights - my favorite so far - this is book #5 in the series.

This is Passport Across America, an awesome activity booklet to go along with the JGDS series.

Here's Train of Clues, the first book in the JGDS series.

The next book, State of Nature, is in production and the book cover should be released soon - as soon as it is, I'll be sure to post it on my blog so you all can check it out. If you want to know more about, or keep up to date with the series, go to or  There you can find more information on where to purchase these books and see what Ms Eldering is up to.

I'm so excited about the upcoming covers and all the work you are doing. Just a quick correction - Train of Clues isn't really part of the series but the story that started it all - this is the story where the characters first appear as does the game console. It is different in that they have a mystery destination on a train for Matt's birthday - and the series I've made the state the mystery - but it is a fun story - hope you all enjoy -

Thanks for posting the covers, Heather. I'm proud to help you build your portfolio for your future endeavors. Don't know why Heights is your favorite so far - lol. I love Train of Clues but they are all good, colorful and fun looking - see you in the postings - Mrs. E :)
