Illustrator David Mann comments on this cover:
I’m a big fan of the old Rathbone & Bruce 1940s films, so those spunky chaps feature here, although Mr Bruce’s face has been reversed. Obviously for the gag I replaced the requisite drooling mega-hound with an errant Chihuahua. There was some discussion with my colleagues regarding which breed to go for. I had wanted to change to a poodle. Disallowed. Actually, leaping Dachshund might have been funnier? So subjective...
