First, off, thanks for these ebooks. What a treasure trove...

I've noticed, starting with these Laura Ingalls Wilder ebooks, that the cover image is being stored in the .prc in a somewhat different fashion than you have employed in the past.

Basically, the cover image can be displayed with the Mobipocket Reader, but there is no EXTH data specifying that the cover image is there. The ebook metadata is stored, but somehow the CoverOffset field isn't being set (sorrry to be too technical here).

My Mobi2IMP software doesn't see the cover image because the .prc is encoded differently than it would have expected.

Did you recently switch the software used to create the .prc version (for this series)? Change your steps vs. previous ebooks?

For what it's worth, below are two .imp conversion results for this ebook from the series vs. a previous ebook done by you:
