Sorry for the OT comment, but I thought you'd be interested in yet ANOTHER smiley faced cover coming out this year.

Did it surprise anyone else how many of the heroes were heroines?

Tricia--I had heard about that http://www.gailgauthier.com/2010/02/nice-cover.htm. I believe it's a memoir. The year Happy Kid! was published, an adult nonfiction book was published with a similar cover. I think it had a little Hitler mustache, though I can't be sure. I wish I could find that, and I'd do a round-up post of smiley face books.

ReadingFool--I'm embarrassed to say that that shot over my head. I did notice, though, that a few books I am unfamiliar with were included. British books, I assume, which makes sense since the Guardian is a British publication.
