Wilder, Laura Ingalls: On the Banks of Plum Creek, v.1, 1 April 2009.

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957)
On the Banks of Plum Creek (1937)
Cover illustration by Helen Moore Sewell (1896–1957)

The fourth of the ‘Little House’ books. The Ingalls family have moved to Minnesota and struggle with a plague of grasshoppers and severe winter blizzards. One snowstorm is especially memorable.

One part of the story demands illustrations. I couldn’t find any copyright-free ones, so I did them myself with Microsoft Paint. I’m afraid that they are rather wobbly.

The Little House Series:
1. Little House in the Big Woods (1932)
2. Farmer Boy (1933)
3. Little House on the Prairie (1935)
4. On the Banks Of Plum Creek (1937)
5. By The Shores Of Silver Lake (1939)
6. The Long Winter (1940)
7. Little Town on the Prairie (1941)
8. These Happy Golden Years (1943)
9. The First Four Years (1971)

(It was not possible to include the Garth Williams [1912-1996] illustrations because they are still in copyright everywhere. This book is in the Canadian public domain, and in that of all life+50 years countries.)

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:

No, I haven't changed anything, Nick. I make an html0 file from Book Designer and put it into Mobipocket Creator. Then I add the cover as usual. It shows up when I open it in Mobipocket Reader.
I'm a bit puzzled by this too.

I think there must be a bug in your software when reading the EXTH header.

I've checked carefully, and this book has 13 EXTH records, including coveroffset, hasfakecover and thumboffset.

In addition, my QuickLook plug-in finds and displays the cover correctly.

Note that your output shows multiple 118 EXTH entries. I suspect that you're not handling 118 correctly, and accidentally re-reading the same EXTH record over and over.

Paul, you are right about a bug in my mobi decode routines I lifted from Mobiperl.

Mobi2html.exe (v.0.0.41) properly finds those EXTH entries that my software is missing, namely:

Thanks for the heads up!

And, Patricia, pardon the intrusion. I've got some debugging to do now...

No worries, Nick. I'm just relieved and pleased that I hadn't made a mistake somewhere.

Squashed the bug! My bad; I was skipping EXTH data with null (0) content!

Mobi2IMP will be fixed and posted shortly.
