The first book, Joey and the City Ghosts, has a dustwrapper design based strongly on Terry Freeman's original. The others, Joey of Jasmine Street, Joey and the Mail Robbers and Joey and the Square of Gold owe nothing to the original artwork. Neither the cover artist nor the artist of the internal illustrations is credited.

More details on these editions can be found on the Titles pages.
