A Boilerplate In-Joke

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed Boilerplate, a history of the turn of the last century with a pretty amazing robot thrown in. It's full of great art and amazingly doctored photographs. When it came to do today's booktalk I wrestled with how to convey the fun of the book. I decided to take some of Unshelved's own history, the cover to Library Mascot Cage Match, and doctor it. I love how it turned out, even if the only people who will get the joke are Unshelved fans like you.
