I’ve been toying with a few cover images and was told that big and bold sells, but that’s just not how I envision this book. Yes, there are ball playing, walking, talking animals, and yes, the target reader is 11-14. However, it’s not a Hannah Barbara cartoon. I’m considering this image because the colors are soft, it’s subtle, and the focus is on the ball coming at the reader.
Please, let me know what you think. Any advice out there?
