Evolution of a cover

You might be surprised at how a book cover changes.
Plan A: A combination of a few characters and a train car.
Not this image, but maybe one of these people.
(And not that train car. That's where they sell cotton candy.)

Plan B: Maybe the main character hiding.

Plan C: Something like this, maybe. (I blotted out the 
title and author/illustrator info. I'm the illustrator
and I know who the author is, but the title might change.)

Plan D: 
I think we're going with an expansion of this.

Whatever we end up with, it'll be my best work.
